Steingarten LAJoin LAdobe on Thursday, June 30 at 7pm at Steingarten LA at 10543 W. Pico Boulevard in West Los Angeles. Steingarten is a new gastropub in West LA that specializes in unique beers and wine offerings as well as a variety of sausage offerings and other unique menu items such as Baby Back Ribs Bliss Cake, Duck Confit and All Natural Grass Fed Beef Sliders and Burgers.

LAdobe will be meeting up this evening for our first ever summer mixer. A chance for our members to get together for a casual evening of getting to know their fellow members and discuss what happened the first half of 2011. It’s also a great way to create new relationships and alliances in a pressure-free environment. Some come in, experience a new place to dine and drink in LA and just enjoy the atmosphere!

That night will also be our finals of Photoshop Idol. The chance to help determine the new name and identity for our annual big LAdobe community event, MiniMAX. This years’ finalists are Harold Buchman, Kimberly Guccione and Ed Ward. They’ve come up with some great designs for this years’ finals and you’ll help determine who’ll be the big winner of a copy of Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 and a host of other prizes from O’Reilly, Alien Skin Software and more. We’ll begin the finals around 8pm.

We’ll also have some additional prizes as well and discuss some of the big events we have planned later in 2011. So please come out to Steingarten LA on June 30 for your first big event of the long Independence Holiday weekend!
