The day is finally here. Tomorrow, is the 2nd annual Cranky Dorkfest (#dorkfest for you Twitter-folk) at the In ‘n Out on Sepulveda just north of LAX. I’ll be there from 11a to 2p, so please come on by to say hello. Here are some answers to a couple of questions that have come up.
How do I get there if I’m already in LA?
If you’re in LA and are coming from the south, take the 405 up to the 105 west. (For those who are coming from the east, just take the 105 west.) Exit Sepulveda North and turn right. You’ll see it on the left. Just look for all the drooling people staring skyward.
If you’re in LA and coming from the north, stay home. Yes, it’s the ill-timed Carmageddon this weekend, and that means traffic is likely going to be bad to the north. If you really want to come from the Valley, you can always come through downtown LA and then head over on the 105. Those on the west side can shoot for surface streets, but it might be ugly.
What if I’m flying in?
If you’re flying in, you are awesome. Thank you. To get there, you have a few options. The easiest is usually to try to take the Parking Spot shuttle to the Sepulveda lot. (Do not take the shuttle that goes to the Century lot or you’ll be in the wrong place.) Leave a nice tip since you’re not actually going to the Parking Spot, but In ‘n Out is right next door. Some have reported that they are cracking down on people going to In ‘n Out. If they won’t let you on, you have options.
You can just walk it. From Terminals 1, 2, 3 or Bradley, turn left out of baggage claim and walk until you hit Sepulveda. Cross the street and turn left. After you pass the runways, you’ll see In ‘n Out back across the street on your left. If you’re coming from the other terminals, it’s a tougher walk. You might want to just take the shuttle to Parking Lot C/LAX Transit Center and then you can walk up Sepulveda from there.
What is the schedule of events?
It’s pretty simple. I’ll be there from 11a to 2p myself. I’ll grab a burger and be outside, ready to hang out and watch airplanes with everyone who shows up. I’m leaving the family at home, but feel free to bring your family, bring your dogs, bring people who have no interest in airplanes…. Just come and hang out and enjoy what should be a good weather day tomorrow. The only other thing of note to mention is that Routehappy will be giving away some t-shirts. There won’t be enough for everyone, so we’re going to figure out how to give them away tonight.
What if I don’t like In ‘n Out?
I have to seriously question your sanity. You’re a vegetarian? No excuse. They make a mean grilled cheese. It’s not on the menu, but just order it. Or you can just get a shake. Mmm … shake. But there’s also a park out there so bring your own food if you must. While it’s hard to believe, you can enjoy watching airplanes without a Double Double in your hand. (It’s just note quite as good.)
What should I wear?
Black tie. Ok, maybe not. Just a regular suit and tie will be fine. And by “suit” I mean “t-shirt and shorts.” By “tie” I mean “flip flops.” That’s what I’ll be wearing, at least.
I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!
