Very exciting! Can't wait to meet you all there. If anyone wants to carpool from the LB area, let me know!

Anybody interested in carpooling and splitting the gas in true MMM-style?

I'd really like to go, but I don't have a car, so I'd need to carpool (I'd definitely be happy to help with expenses). I'm just off the 405 in Irvine, but could bike to meet a ride anywhere in Irvine vicinity.

I'm going and I can drive! I'll be leaving from Irvine where I work (near the Spectrum) but returning to Long Beach.

@flyfig, maybe we can carpool?
@oldladystache, maybe I can pick you up and we can meet up with @flyfig in LB?
@becabeca, I'd be happy to pick you up and take you there, but would you be able to get back to Irvine after? I could take you as far as Long Beach...
@lafemmex, where are you coming from/going to?

We should probably coordinate directly, I think a group text would probably be ideal? If so, text me your name at six1nine-seven8six-three2five8, and I'll start the group text.

I vote working out chipping in for gas depending on how the rides work out :)

SO EXCITED!!!

lafemmex and I are planning on going together. I'd rather not get involved with pooling with such a large group. Too much last minute confusion for me. Plus lafemmex and I will probably want to go home earlier than the rest of the group.

Thanks for offering!

Sounds good! Becabeca and I are meeting up in Irvine and going together, so flyfig, if you want to meet up in LB and go from there, text me!

If @becabeca needs a ride back to Irvine and doesn't mind leaving relatively early (9pm-ish perhaps?), I can do it.  I just texted FrizzyFrisbee so she has my digits.  See you all SOON...!

Hey folks,

Just want to say hello to the folks in OC, especially those who came to Manhattan Beach last night.  You might remember me as the guy who was actually able to ride his bike to the event.  Was good meeting everyone.  I'd enjoy another meetup in the near future, perhaps a little bike ride and/or BBQ.  I know OC has some good sand, and I'm told LBC is very bike friendly as well.  Cheers, and have a great weekend!

Hey! It was great meeting everyone too! Y'all might remember me as the proud owner of a $2 bill signed by none other than the man himself :)

I thought that an OC Mustachian Facebook group might be helpful for coordinating future meetups, since you can create events, take polls, see pictures of people so you can remember what they look like, etc ;) I've sent invites to everyone who was on the email list that Laura put together last night, but here is the link if anyone else would like to join: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ocmustachians/

Also.. I would vote for having our next meetup on the 30th instead of the 23rd! But I could probably make it on the 23rd, just a preference :)

For those of you near Long Beach, there is the LB Green Prize festival going on the same day (30th), from 11 am to 7 pm at Admiral Kidd Park. It'd be my first time going, but it sounded fun! More info at their site: http://www.greenprizefestival.com/

What's the word, folks?  Still interested in meeting on the 23rd?  (The event on the 30th looks fun, but that day doesn't work well for me).  I also clicked "join" on the OC facebook group.

We've agreed to get together in May but nobody's stepped forward. So how about Saturday May 28 at my place in Leisure World Seal Beach?  What shall we do? Just get together and see what happens? Bring food for sharing? Bring games? Late morning?

Let me know what you think.

Hey OC Mustachians! We have our next meetup coming up on June 18th at 10:30 am in Seal Beach.

If you'd like to join us for a couple hours of food and fun, please either join the Facebook group and RSVP for the event (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ocmustachians), or PM me here. I'm not posting the specific details on the forum since @oldladystache is kindly hosting at her place.

Hope to see some new faces!

I just moved out to Orange County less than a year ago, and just requested to join the FB group!  Looking forward to the meetup!

Hey all,

I probably met up with some of you at the LA beach meetup. I haven't been super active on the forums so I just checked this thread today. I'm not sure if it's too late to RSVP, but if you've got space for two more my boyfriend and I would like to come. (We're the ones that met on this forum.) Let us know we'd love to drop by with some snacks/drinks.

Thanks!

Hey OC/LA'ers, we have our next meetup coming up soon in September! It'll be a pool party lunch potluck at a Mustachian home in Orange.

RSVP on the Facebook event page! You'll need to join the FB group first.
FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ocmustachians/
FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/312068679138149/

If you're not on Facebook, PM me so I can message you the address and help coordinate what you'll be bringing. We also tend to have waaay too much food, so if having to bring food would be a barrier to you coming, you can always bring games, good Mustachian conversation starters, or anything else you can think of :)

Happy summer!

Helloooo fellow Mustachians! We've got another meetup potluck planned for Saturday, October 22nd at 11:30 am in Huntington Beach. It's at a private residence, so if you would like to RSVP and join us, please PM me for the address or join the Facebook group!

FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ocmustachians

We will have lawn games, an excess of delicious food and lots of Mustachian conversation to be had. Tiny houses, investing, non-Mustachian indulgences and diy car repairs were some favorite topics from last time :) Hope to see y'all there!

Awesome @Mezzie! The location of our meetups varies across Orange County; we actually had our last one in HB, and before that Orange, Irvine and Seal Beach. The location is dependent mainly on who is hosting. If you live in HB and are interested in hosting our next one, let me know! Could be at your house or just a place you know that would be good for a group of 10-15.

Hey y'all, save the date for our next meetup, Saturday May 6th! Will be in Long Beach either at Drake Park or a fellow Mustachian's house down the block.

I'll post confirmed details when we get closer to the date. If you'd like to RSVP, join the Facebook group where I'll be creating an official event page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ocmustachians) or if you're not on Facebook, PM me!

It's been great seeing all the new faces, hope to see some more in May :)

Hey fellow Mustachians! Our next meetup is right around the corner, Saturday May 6th, 10:30 am at Drake Park in Long Beach. We'll be grilling, and our hosts are providing burgers & hotdogs. If you'll be joining us, please bring a side or drinks to share, and RSVP so I can get a rough headcount.

If you're on Facebook, join the group and RSVP on the event page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ocmustachians/

If you're not on Facebook, you can reply or PM me to RSVP.

See you then!

Hi all, if you're planning on coming tomorrow and you didn't join the FB group or PM me to RSVP, just know that we've moved the location. It's nearby, but at a member's private residence. If you'd like to join us, PM me and I can send you the address. Thanks!

Greetings all! As I am closer to OC than LA I would love to meetup sometime. I am not on FB though. Anywho, hopefully my SO and I can make the next meetup.
