West LA - Weekend Casuals - Sawtelle/Olympic


#1

Update:
I moved and these are now hosted in Koreatown. Near Wilshire/normandie intersection.

Update:
Hosting casuals (almost) every week on Saturdays. Text me at 408-655-7611 or PM for info.
Games are streamed at http://www.twitch.tv/jawang/

Looking at the other thread, it seems like there are things going on during the week (especially Tuesday), but I’m looking for a consistent weekend event in west LA. It’s getting kind of tedious driving hours just to play some sf4

Any interest in this?
I’d be down to host (near UCLA, next to the Sawtelle japan-town area), and maybe pitch in some money for a prize pool if there are enough people for a tournament


Midcity/Korea Town/West LA UMVC Tournaments

I’m really interested. I work at Blockheads on Mississippi and Sawtelle so it’s perfect and I’ll be down to help out.

Hi. I’m from the Santa Monica area. I’m definitely interested in something on the Westside. I find the distances to SuperArcade and other locations pretty daunting and difficult to work into my work/life schedule. Weekend evenings would be better than during the day, however.

I play (relatively poorly) all the usual suspects: SSF4AE; Marvel; MK9; SCV (just starting); Virtua Fighter 5 (just starting); SFxT. I’ve dabbled with Skullgirls and KOF13, but I don’t really understand what’s going on in those games (willing to learn though). I’d like to work on my my SSF4, SFxT and MK9 games in particular, and am looking forward to Tekken Tag 2 this fall.

I also have a friend who would probably be interested.

I just moved to Santa Monica. I’m an old school SF2 original guy, but would love to get some newer games in too. Shoot me a message if you guys are still running these.

Thanks!
