    OK so I know we're all spread out over the place with people at various Airport Hotels and a bunch of us at the Andaz too.

    Not knowing any reasonable places in LAX, i'll leave it open to suggestions, but i'm proposing a dinner on Saturday night to begin the festivities.

    Who's up for it? I'm at the Andaz with SO and storyteller. Ideally drinks and dinner is my suggestion:)

    My flight gets in around 5PM, would be interested in doing dinner but only if in airport vicinity.

    If no organized dinner, the In-N-Out is sounding really good!

    I get in around 0750 Saturday morning, so after a full day i'll be wanting a nice meal (have to do stuff around LA before I get stuck into the evenings events) :)

    Unfortunately, the only kind of food thing I could do would be a late night In-N-Out run

    I usually go to a Thai Restaurant named Palms Thai in Hollywood/101 freeway. I think it is pretty good, reasonable price and on Sat it open late. It is close to Kodak theatre (where the Oscar held every year). here: http://palmsthai.com/. I think it is a good place to hang out , especially for those of you stay at Andaz Hollywood.

    I would prefer not to have a burger (And I mean, why would you go past Fudruckers :p). All I seem to eat when travelling thru the USA is burgers. They're the most consistent food, usually where hotel room service menus are consistently crap :)

    I would more then likely be down, getting in around 5pm and heading to the Hilton.

    Looks like there's going to be two do's Saturday night, the Hilton crowd (combined with nearby hotels) and our schlepping around WeHo. :)

    there are a lot of good restaurants not far from the Andaz - Talesai, Osteria Drago...... I could bring my hubby's car (he is going out of town) and ferry 4 others to a WeHo or Ho restaurant. My absolute fave mid-level dining is Pizzeria Mozza (@Melrose & Highland), they have things other than pizza - it usually comes out to something like $70 per person with wine. The problem is that there is a show at the Hollywood Bowl and it is Sat. night, so getting a rez could be tricky!

    Have posted this in the Limo thread as well..

    Got the Host here at the Andaz to make reservations for us at Cravings, Sat night, 8 pm.
    Can be tweaked or rubbed out. Just thought I'd get in & make a reservation before the places all fill up.

    And if folk at the LAX Hilton want to join us, I can arrange a Limo for 10 for around $23 pp each way :) There may be a couple of spare beds out this way.

    A tiny correction, the restaurant is Cravings and has a lot of outdoor seating (Paris cafe wanna-be)- you can sit on the strip and people watch....(but I am probably going to eat first, don't want to drink on a empty stomach)

    Might switch my flight to arrive about that time, otherwise will be in around 9pm. Need to do some calculations and see if shorter routing will not effect to reach me next level. Diiner around 9:30pm?

    Surprised a group like this would not be heading to the Proud Bird, across the runway from LAX. It not only boasts a collection of vintage aircraft on its property, but the walls are lined with photos of aviation history from the LA area: fliers, factories, planes, terminals... It's a real old style American eatery, good food and a short walk from the Hilton or Westin. You can watch the planes come in for a landing while eating your dinner. Fascinating place for any flight enthusiast!

    I don't get in til late so was not proposing starting a group to go there myself. But for those interested, Google the web site for specific details/location. I do either the Proud Bird, or the In & Out, when staying at LAX. Hop the Big Blue Bus to one, walk to the other.

    I am looking forward to going to In N Out, but would check out Proud Bird if a group ends up going there.

    My show ends at 9pm, up the street from both In-and Out, and the Proud Bird.
    If a meet is arranged at that time, I'm in.

    I'm scheduled to land at 9:45pm, so that timing is doable
