West LA Tweetup

Last night there was a Tweetup — the first I’d actually attended in LA (I know, I’ve been a bit of a slacker since getting back into town what feels like a very short 6 months ago). In any case, when I heard that people were getting together nearby after attending Gravity Summit, I thought I should stop by to meet some new people.

The Tweetup was at Palomino in Westwood, a very popular bar and restaurant — I want to go back and try their thin-crust pizza because it looked delicious. The place was packed with a lively post-work/post-conference crowd, and I meandered around a bit before Rodney Rumford saw me looking a little lost and made some introductions (thank you!).

There was quite a big crowd, so I didn’t even come close to meeting everyone, but I did have some nice conversations with Ben, Dustin, Tony, Ricardo, Alan, Angie and John. I also ran into Jon Rognerud, who I worked with when I was an editor at Entrepreneur.com — we’d never met in person, so I didn’t even realize who he was at first!

It was great to get out and meet some new and interesting people. And tomorrow I have another event — the first ever Tuttle LA. If you’re available tomorrow morning and can make it to Long Beach, I’d love to see you there.

    Francine! – It was totally great to meet you in person. I had seen your blog and pictures from your fantastic Europe trip, but never in person – how cool! Just like that!

    See you at the next Tweetup, I hope… :-) Cheers, Jon
