Welcome to L.A. - What now? / by brent

I've occasionally sent out an email to recent LA transplants to help speed integration. I'll put it here in case it's useful to others.
For art, music and fun subscribe to Flavorpill: newsletter, Twitter
For cerebral stimulus, networking (and an open bar), come to the monthly Mindshare event
If you're pursuing the entertainment/media dream explore Hollywood Hill
A large, interesting artist community downtown called The Brewery with a biannual art exhibition called Artwalk and a mailing list here.
For technology networking there's G33k D1nner, DigitalLA, BarcampLA
My favorite art galleries: Gallery 1988, Crewest, Think Space
Interesting classes and events on a *wide* range of topics available from Machine Project, The Public School
Other LA gems: cemetery movie screenings, a great music venue in a guitar shop, a female roller skate derby, a magic castle, and a circus
There's a non-standard tour company
Twitterers: DoSomethingNew, LA Weekly, Alexia Tsotsis
