Inormation updated for 2016  Look for this flag to show we have confirmation for this year’s event. The year is listed next to all events because some folks don’t update their webs until the last minute. Please check with the venue if you see an old date.. most likely the party is still happening. LA loves to party… but they’re very slow at updating their webs..

Not everything is quite updated yet. Please bear with. Had a computer crash an was forced to change software. Installing and updating as fast as we can.
