ah yes, the lens viewer.. That was CAMERA OBSCURA. Great place.

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...

I seem to recall a meeting being held at a Masonic temple, but I couldn't make it.

Chris,

We met at that Jewish Community Center here in Sherman Oaks last summer.

I don't remember the name of it but I'm sure you do! :oops:

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...

...what were people's favorites? They're all great, but....

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