I read this as "LAMB'S" and thought I;d have to get permission from PJ.LABM'S
On a more serious note,
How much bail money you got?Go to the beach and take your clothes off and do it
Here's a few notes on the Los Angeles Decompression Party this Sunday (10/19) - Noon to 11:00 PM:
Location - 1st Street & Vignes in downtown L.A. (between Alameda St. and the L.A. River).
If you look at a map (Mapquest is good) this will be easier to follow...
The two-block party area starts at 1st and Vignes and runs east on Vignes to Santa Fe and north on Santa Fe to Banning.
The slightly tricky part is:
There are TWO 1st Streets - the bigger one climbs a bridge to cross the River - the smaller one (alongside to the north) runs at normal street level and that's where the party is.
At the corner of 1st Street & Vignes is the (in)famous Blue Bongo. Blue Bongo is owned by Burners, and will play a big part in the event.
The slightly tricky part is:
Yes, Virginia, there is NO Blue Bongo (at least no signs saying "Blue Bongo"). The signs say "Little Pedro's Cantina." (duh!) ?
Parking - There should be adequate free parking on streets in the immediate area (and probably enough traffic from the party so that your car will be safe - but use appropriate discretion on where to park and what to leave visible inside the car). There are a couple of pay-parking lots that MAY be open, but may not. Remember, one block of 1st and one block of Santa Fe are closed. Getting there early will make parking a lot easier (duh!). You might try taking 2nd Street to Santa Fe and heading north on Santa Fe... lots of people will probably park there. I'll probably park on Banning if there's room left.
Food and Drink - Both will be available from Blue Bongo, but bring your own for convenience, or plan to leave for dinner and return (you WILL need a hand stamp to get back in if you leave). No food can be handed out freely on the street (Health Dept) so there won't be any of that. NO alcohol or open containers on the street (LAPD) so be careful of that.
Schedules - Mutaytor Show is 8 PM - 9 PM. All times are subject to change, and there are 3 stages, so check for performance times when you get there. The music goes off at 11 PM (official closing time). We have to have the whole place cleaned up (completely) by 2 AM. If you can possibly stay late to help with teardown and cleanup, that would be great. Blue Bongo will stay open until 2 AM.

That's funny, I wore a costume but didn't receive my "stipend". Where can I apply for one, or is it too late?If you're paying the higher fee, consider it as helping to offset the costs of the costumes of the folks whose costumes help make the event special - or simply encouraging them with a financial incentive.
I dunno, when I see the surveillance tapes on most bank robberies, they are usually at least wearing a mask.It seems that thieves are generally not in costume too, from the anecdotes I've heard.
we are quite likely the furthest thing from trolls.Are you guys just being trolls?

My thanks go out to the folks whose job it is to collect the bread hand have to put up with folks with no costume trying to pay the low price.
