Bond has done a wonderful job with his parties in LA.
   
I agree with NDTBF in regards to OC parties.   At this point in time I doubt it is realistic to expect to get 150 to 200 people to attend even if it is held on the OC/SD border.  Just like it took time to build the LA parties to their current size it will take time and effort to build OC parties to the size of the LA parties.  

The posters on this thread that think there is no interest for M&G parties in OC are wrong.  Currently I am aware of Meet and Greet parties that occur in OC every 6 to 12 weeks that rival the size of Bond’s LA parties and are held at venues that are private with only party attendees allowed.  In addition every 2 or 3 weeks there are M&G parties that range from 40 to 90 people that occur in either public or private places in OC.  Just like Bond’s parties in LA the gents usually pay $40 or more to attend and the ladies attend for free.  The above parties are just the ones I know about and I am sure there are plenty I never find out about.
 
If someone is interested in creating large parties in the OC, it can be done but it will take time and effort.  

Maybe a photo thread at least once a week...

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Lill, come back to OC! I've been meaning to email you.

I think the OC, SD, and LA boards should be combined. One bigger discussion board, less switching in between, that should encourage more posts and replies. We are all neighbors.

I know more than a few of us, expecially you and your sister, have in our own ways, TRIED to breathe life into this this board.  Heck, look at the thread right below this one posted ALMOST TWELVE DAYS AGO.  If ever there was an invitation for funny or enticing pics, humorous stories, or even tales of wild kitchen sex - hey I tried !!!

I think pic threads garner the most attention and response, and since most mongers (not me) hobby during the week, a "Tushy Tuesday" alternating with a "Ta-Ta Tuesday" or pic du jour might help.  I'd even volunteer to be the thraad starter for a few months, but I'm not posting pics of my fat behind LOL.

I agree that L.A.  and O.C. boards have a LOT in common with both hobbyists and providers, but disagree that San Diego should be combined.  The SD board has many MANY thoughtful and witty providers who actively participate and give it that "San Diego" feel and flavor.  I know reading the SD board always makes me smile - such wit, charm and beauty in your fair city.

That said, I think part of the problem is that there are very few PURE OC providers - a few live here, but all service both LA and Orange County.  

Maybe at issue is picking really good posts ON the LA board and gently but directly reminding the poster that what's sauce for the LA goose is also good for the OC gander.  Additionally posts here reminding people of major events (OC Fair, key Angel games, events at the Pond etc.,) would give providers the opportunity to create "I'd love to be your date at (insert event name here).  If we could get a core group of 4 or 5 providers who are OC friendly to commit to 60 days of extra attention to this board, perhaps we could breathe life back into it.  Absent that, maybe we will be left with no choice but to use the LA board for both or merge them.

To kick off, how about a "your favorite BCD outfit" (lingerie fashion show), come hither, wet fun, or stocking picture day - something a little off the beaten track.

PS - I should get props for typing "resuscitation correctly - I'm barely sober right now.  

Also, I still think the whipped cream/cherries concept provides a helluva them for our creative shutterbug providers !

Picture of the day every week is a great idea, Madame.

I get to OC on occasions as well, at least once a month.

Have a fabulous day, every1.

Has been pretty much taken over by "kgirl" talk, everyone else should just come over here:)

I would be willing to do that providing:

1.  A facility is secured that fulfills my must have requirments.

2.  People actually show up.  I know there have been attempts to have a M and G in San Diego.  Just very little interest from what I understand.  I have either hosted or co-hosted 3 parties in SD.  Its just very difficult to get a large attendance.  And without that, the dollars required to secure a private facility is prohibitive.

I would love to host an event in OC.  Heck its a lot closer for me.  

Just don't know if we get my issues resolved.

Bond

I for one would love to see a M & G in OC now that I am throttling up again in hobby activities.

I'm sure you have overlap from OC gents at your world-renowned LA parties - I think similar percentages of overlap (whatever they are) would apply to SD and LA overlap into the Orange County M & G.

And I think it might help the "OC friendly"  SD and LA providers to remind the gents of their presence.

A bit curious of venue reqt's, I know you are really specific about what you want.

1.  Able to support a party of 150-200 people.
2.  Full bar with bartenders
3.  Food available
4.  Private, only party attendees allowed in
5.  Realistic Minimum of Business Required
6.  Dance Area
6.  Room for DJ and Sound System
7.  Safe Location
8.  Valet Parking and/or parking available at mimimal cost (less than $10)

Last parties I have had in OC, we just could not get anyone from LA to attend.  we barely got anyone from OC to attend.  So perhaps an OC/SD party would work.  Something in the middle of both areas.  I would need help scouting a location.  I'm still doubtful we could get enough people to attend to make it a viable party.  Prove me wrong people!

Maybe if we made it Amtrak friendly, a few more of the outliers might show up.

Possible "middle ground"

Capistrano
Dana Point
Carlsbad
Oceanside

Well, if anyone wants to take on the duty of finding a venue, let me know.

Bond

Bond I will, do some research & attempt to find a venue.

bond, as you know M&G's as we know them today had a humble genesis..my first was at a mexican restaurant on pico, there was maybe 2 dozens chicks and dudes...well, 8 chicks and 16 dudes:D

perhaps it would be best to downscale plans, then scale up?

Thats already been done.  I've had 3 in the past in OC.  25-30 in attendance in each.  And was not private because I couldn't get a big enuf headcount.

that can be the basis upon which venue requirements can be assesed

kudos on your LA work BTW, that "market" has REALLY evolved.

Great idea! How can we make this happen? I'd like to visit OC on a more regular basis.
