Event Description

Hey SoCal exmos, kommen zu our meetup!

 

The inaugural event of the new SoCal Exmos group will be held on Saturday, June 25th, at 5:30pm (or fashionably late, we don't mind) at...

 

Wurstküche! 

 

Wurstküche is an exotic sausage grill located in the heart of the Downtown Los Angeles Historic Arts District. Serving sausage sandwiches, Belgian fries with homemade dipping sauces, twenty four Imported biers on tap, and a gourmet collection of sodas.

 

I have enjoyed Wurstküche several times and have always had a wonderful experience. Long communal tables, all the tasty sausages you could ever imagine (inculding vegetarian sausages), a variety of mustards to choose from, and a fantastic venue to gather and revel in all our exmo goodness. What could be better? The downtown location is totally safe and parking right around the restaurant is very easy. 

 

Please RSVP so I can make a reservation for us if the group gets large.

 

We chose an early dinner to give those traveling and those with kids (like me) the chance to get home at a decent hour, and also give the hip singles the chance to go paint the town red later in the evening.

 

The event will also be announced on other sites and is intended for exmos/postmos/NOMs/etc. Guests are welcome, just make sure they are aware that it is an event where there may be loud laugher and other covenant breaking (nothing too crazy of course, us exmos are a classy bunch).

Rats! I'll be in Berkeley that weekend. I hope I can catch you next time.

Up above in the event description, I vaguely referred to a "variety of mustards to choose from." However, did you know that they have 5 different mustards? Five different mustards! Can you even name 5 mustards off the top of your head? I couldn't. 

Here is the list of mustards available: Whole Grain, Dijon, Spicy Brown, Honey Mustard, and American Yellow. 

Can you name another establishment that has 5 mustards available? No. You can't. And what is better than mustard on your sausage? A variety of mustard, that's what.

And if you don't like mustard, that's okay too. We're really there for the fun and to hang with some fellow exmos, the mustard is just the social lubricant (they also serve alcohol, another social lubricant, for those so inclined) to help facilitate a great time.  And a great time we will have, whether you like mustard or not.

Here are some photos to help you locate Wurstküche when you get there. The last picture is of the condominiums across the street from the restaurant. Can't wait.

Mmmm, sausage.

Pot, prepare to be sweetened. You've seen pics of the restaurant, you've seen the pic of the sausage. Wurstkuche stands on its own, but for those who are able to arrive earlier (at 3:45pm) there will be a 100 minute walking tour of that area of Downtown Los Angeles hosted by me. 

We will meet promptly at 3:45pm, walk to the Little Tokyo Metro Station, pay the $1.50 to ride to Union Station (picsinfo), then walk back to Wurstkuche exploring Olvera Street (picsinfo), Little Tokyo (picsinfo), and passing City Hall along the way. The total distance walking will be about a mile, we will explore some of the coolest and most historic parts of downtown, and we will successfully work up an appetite for sausage. How can you refuse?

Please let me know if you are interested in taking part in Happy Guy's 100 Minute Tour of Downtown LA. I have at least one person who is up for it, but the more the merrier.

Two days away! 

 

I'm really excited to meet everyone on Saturday. For those who can attend Happy Guy's 100 Minute Tour of Downtown LA, we'll meet outside the restaurant at 3:45pm. For those who will be there for dinner, we will see you at 5:30pm.

 

Here is how you will recognize me. Take out a piece of paper. Draw a male stick figure that is 6 feet tall and weighs 190lbs. Do not add hair. Add glasses. When you arrive and see someone who looks like that, you found me! For those who may arrive a little late for dinner, I will have a small sign at the end of our table that says "Happy Guy" on it. If this fails, say a prayer and the spirit will guide you to us. We shouldn't be too hard to find. Follow the loud laughter, lightmindedness, and evil speaking of the Lord's anointed. That'll be us. 

 

To get the most out of the experience, I recommend the following. For those who are partnered up with someone, I recommend ordering 3 or 4 different sausages between the two of you, then cutting them each in half so you each get to try a wider variety of sausage. For those who are flying solo (like me), we can go it alone or partner up with each other (BHM, I've got my eye on you. ) to share sausage. 

 

Also, the restaurant is set up so that you enter the main door and there is a small area where you place your order. Once your order is placed, you walk down a hallway to the main eating area and they'll come find you with your food. You can order a drink when you place your order and there is also a bar in the main eating area. The place has great food, a great vibe, and I am confident that the event will be just...ok. 

 

This is going to be the final reminder I send out. If anyone needs to get in touch with me, shoot me a personal message or leave a comment here and I should get it fairly quickly. If you want my cell number, shoot me a personal message. 

 

Can't wait to meet everyone!!!!
