Monthly Meetups

Want to meet some LA-local fellow dust eaters? Then keep an eye on our LA Burning Man Facebook page for announcements about upcoming meetups! It's our chance to get to know fellow LA burners, no dust required!

Please invite others! Spread the word! Let's make these meetups our family reunion off the playa!

We're in a little bit of a meetup-lull because we're short on regular places to meet, and cat-herders (or would it be dust-eater-herders?) to help run them. If you would like to help host a meetup(s) or know of a friendly location(s) let us know! Just email la(at) and we'll help you make it so!

Have a suggestion for a theme for the one of the LA Burning Man Meetups? (Like DPW! Or Greeters! Or Art Car owners/workers, whatever group you’re in we can do a meetup for it!) Email us at la (at) with your idea and what kind of location would be the best fit for your theme (bar, park, house, loft, covered wagon, whatevs!).

NORTH SIDE MEETUP :: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :: 

The Other Door
10437 Burbank Blvd,
North Hollywood, CA 91601
We have a fantabulous new dust-eater-herder named Amanda who has taken the lead on hosting meetups at the burner-owned bar called The Other Door in North Hollywood!

She's got a bunch of meetups scheduled through the end of the year - you can get more info on them on this main Facebook North Hollywood Burner Meetup! event page!

Thanks to Lucifer (of French Quarter fame) and the super-rad staff at The Other Door, it's a super friendly place to meet.

  • Want to DJ?
  • Do you have Burning Man video to run on our screens?
  • Shall we reserve parking for your mutant vehicle?

Just email la (at) with your ideas and we'll connect you with The People Who Can Help Make It Happen!

21+ (ID Required)

Look for the BAR sign and GIANT DOOR
FREE PARKING lot and plenty of street parking


WEST SIDE ADJACENT MEETUP :: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :: 

The Mandrake

2692 S La Cienega Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90034
(between Venice and Washington)

Every once in a while we'll get our shiznit together at a rad bar in Culver City and shake out our dusty finest in the company of our finest dusty peeps!

The uber-rad LA BM regional rock-stars Damara and Do or Di do most of the cat-herding at this fine location. They are definitely gaining momentum, it's been a fun mix of new and elder burners alike swappin' tales of dusty goodness in times past and to come!


:: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :: 

This (and all!) of the meetups grow momentum fast, so if you'd like to help run one, or have an idea/connection for a good place to host one (doesn't have to be every month, would be nice to spread out the hosting chores).

Just email la (at) with your thoughts and we'll help connect the dots for ya!

And don't forget...

BYOD! (Bring your own dust!)
