Don't see the water reclamation plant of last month listed here...and, if you really want to be a completist about it, two summers ago or so we collected in an uninspired meeting room in the bowels of the building that houses the Conservancy...

You might have these listed as their former businesses, but I can't remember whats what.....

That storefront on Hollywood Boulevard - now some kind of nightclub, I think upstairs is cinegril or something like that? no cinespace. But it was gutted when we had the meeting there and everyone complained because it was a wee bit cold......

Also, do holiday party locations count? we had a mini meeting too......that downtown complex which is now some sort of mega korean christian church.

That place on Hollywood (closest to Normandie?) where they now do recordings for the blind.

I see that I noted Casa de Cadillac here above... Did we already meet there or am I crazy and maybe we had a tour... I can't remember... We ARE meeting there for the May MODCOM, though...

Union Oil Center (18 mos. ago?), where Nichols' stepfather used to work.

What happened to Union 76? Last week I noticed one in Lincoln Heights is just called 76 and had the name Phillips attached to it. It also appeared to be red, not orange (although it could have just appeared red at night).

Well, now that we've got that ironed out...

I'm partial to the Pepperdine Campus (Faithdome) myself....
