OC Metblog Meetup
OC Metblogs had its second meetup ever yesterday at the Gypsy Den in Santa Ana. We invited authors to show up this time and had a pretty good turnout. Mostly we got to know each other and a little bit about what we’re all interested in. We strayed a little into site topics and I think that will become more important as we have more meetups. We will probably have a meetup every month using the help of MeetUp.com. Our specific page can be found here. Future meetups will be open to readers so sign up if you’re interested.
The Gypsy Den itself was very cool. There are locations in the Artist’s Village in Santa Ana and also The LAB Anti-Mall in Costa Mesa. The atmosphere is quaint and the place feels very open. The food itself is good and the prices are cheap. Everyone at the meetup liked their food. Both locations have events regularly that are posted online. I recommend finding some event and heading down there for good food and an interesting experience.
