  • 8/19 Escape Room (The Bloody Elbow)

    Sunday Assembly LA has a long history of winning at all the escape rooms! And, thanks to a hookup from a SALA alum, we get 25% off two new rooms at Quest Room. If you've never played before, you're missing out! Escape rooms are like live board games where your team works together to solve puzzles, find secret passages and escape the room within 60 minutes. (You're not actually locked in.)

    Join Team Live Better this Saturday at 1:20 (please arrive 15 minutes early--they won't hold the room for us!). We've already booked the room. To secure your spot, RSVP here and Paypal $27 (to friends and family) amykboyle@gmail.com.

    Can't make it on Saturday but still want to play? There are still spots left on Team Wonder More!

    Joey Jefferson from the Cassini Flight Control Team at JPL will speak on the Cassini mission as it approaches Saturn for its final descent! 

    The new Sunday Assembly house band will regale us with space-themed pop songs (yes, that is a thing)!

    James Henderson is trying his best! 

    Join us to find your seat at 11 am, and at 11:30 we will have great talks, live music and secular celebration. Stick around afterward for coffee and snacks, and, if you're still game, lunch in the neighborhood.

    The Trans Chorus Of Los Angeles The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust

    Due to overwhelming demand, Trans Chorus of Los Angeles returns to the Renberg Theatre with an encore of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars. David Bowie's classics get a royal tribute with their first ever staged concert production.

    Come with us to support Ash Gernak (who spoke about how important this chorus is to them at the July Assembly!), Marsha Rose and the other singers! A big group of Assemblers is planning to attend. 

    (After you RSVP, please also make sure to purchase tickets at eventbrite.)

  • SALA Pub Trivia Team - September

    Put your useless knowledge to the test!

    Join the Sunday Assembly Pub Trivia Team.

    We compete together at bars and pubs throughout the city on the 1st of each month, which allows for different nights of the week, and different locations around town.

    Since there is no Friday Trivia option in "September" we will compete on Thursday August 31st at El Tejano in North Hollywood.

    Trivia starts at 8:00 pm, but please try to arrive by 7:45 as we may have to divide into multiple teams. And don't forget your ID.

    Look for familiar faces or a T-shirt or hoodie with a familiar logo. 

    All are welcome. Many think they don't have anything to contribute, but always become valuable members of our team.

  • Venice Game Night 9/3

    Game Night: Plague Edition!

    It's been a long time since we've hosted a themed game night, but disease themed games in our game collection have reached epidemic levels. Come play Virulence, Pandemic (expanded), Pandemic: the Cure, Contagion, Plague Inc., Pandemic Iberia and Snake Oil.

    These include cooperative and competitive games. Feel free to bring extra copies, other themed games, or play ours. Your RSVP helps us plan!

    Note: While the decor, music and games will be contagion-themed, it is our hope that we will not exchange actual diseases at game night. Snacks, drinks and games welcome. Please do not bring pathogens. 

  • SALA Book Club - "The Demon-Haunted World"

    This month we're reading The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Carl Sagan.

    Astrophysicist Carl Sagan aims to explain the scientific method to laypeople, and to encourage people to learn critical and skeptical thinking. He explains methods to help distinguish between ideas that are considered valid science and those that can be considered pseudoscience. Sagan states that when new ideas are offered for consideration, they should be tested by means of skeptical thinking and should stand up to rigorous questioning.

    We have no theme or topic for what we read. Attendees each nominate a book for next month, and the final selection is made by a poll on our SALA Facebook group.

    We normally meet to discuss a new book on the 1st Sunday of each month. This month it was moved to not conflict with Labor Day Weekend plans. The person who nominated the winning book hosts at their home or a public location (coffee shop etc.) of their choosing.

    This month Julie will be hosting at her home in West Covina. The address will be sent to RSVPs.

  • Sept 10 Sunday Assembly

    Join us to find your seat at 11 am, and at 11:30 we will have great talks, live music and secular celebration. Stick around afterward for coffee and, if you're still game, lunch in the neighborhood.

    Sunday Assembly is free of charge, and donations are gratefully accepted.

    Everyone is welcome. Free childcare provided.

    3 hours of free parking is available on a first come basis. The Southwest parking Lot off Santa Monica (closest to Fiesta Hall) and the larger North Parking Lot off Fountain and Vista are both free and open to the public.

  • Interfaith Solidarity March, San Fernando Valley

    Just in time for the 16th Anniversary of 9/11, here’s an opportunity to stand up for peace and tolerance.

    Sunday Assemblers participated in the first and second annual LA Interfaith Solidarity Marches (an account of the first one is here), which were organized in support of religious freedom and against all religious-based violence. We were part of a broad coalition of congregations and community groups of many faiths and none. This past year, in particular, we saw even more inclusion of humanists, atheists and the non-religious, with affirming and welcoming statements from clergy and city officials alike. 

     

    (Most photos courtesy of Russell Orrell.)

    This event was created as a companion to the LA version -- same parent organization, same intent and mission -- but for the San Fernando valley. Sadly, we find ourselves in a time where hateful rhetoric and attacks on religious minorities have become frequent and all-too-common. With recent events in Charlottesville (as of this writing, and who knows what else is to come), racist violence as boiled over in our country. Let’s join our partners for peace and help make this inaugural S.F. Valley Interfaith Solidarity March a success.

    We can discuss carpooling and other logistics as the event nears.

    Official description:

    FOR ALL PEOPLE OF FAITH AND CONSCIENCE

    As a symbol of solidarity and unity with our marginalized communities, neighbors and colleagues, we invite you to march with us between several select houses of worship in between Encino, Tarzana and Reseda in the San Fernando Valley.

    The 2 mile March begins at the Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church on the corner of Ventura Blvd., and White Oak, followed by a stop at Temple Judea, and brief stops at other places of worship and ending at the Islamic Center of Reseda on Victory Blvd.

    There will be a lively program with speakers, music and food at each stop. Please invite your friends!
