Live Better - Sunday Assembly LA Social Events

Live Better. This is the place where we get together to share experiences and build our own community. Looking for a parents group? A recovery group? A parents-recovery group? Want to organize a late-night comedy event or invite Sunday Assemblers to one that already exists? This is your place!

Note: Member-sponsored events need not appeal to every member of our community, but they should be fair, honest, and generally in keeping with secular humanist values. Your event will typically be approved for publication within 24 hours. Approval does not imply Sunday Assembly LA's endorsement of or responsibility for member-sponsored events.

The primary goal of SALA social events is to cultivate a supportive community of like-minded people. While events with a cost for admission or with a secondary purpose of fundraising for a charitable cause are welcome, event listings containing a direct link to contribute funds to outside organizations will not be approved. Thank you for your understanding.

Please plan to attend events you are hosting, and, if your event is at a public event, include a meeting spot or other way to meet up with other Assemblers. 

  • SALA Poker Tournament

    Steve and Elicia Friedman will be hosting a poker tournament at their place in South LA on Sunday, July 22 at 2:30. The buy-in will be $10. This is a friendly game for people of all skill levels (including those with no experience at all). Arrive at 2:00 if you would like a lesson on how to play poker.
    Space is limited, so let us know if you are coming and how many you're bringing. We are near La Brea and Stocker, by Kenneth Hahn Park. Address will be sent to those who RSVP.
  • SALA Pub Trivia Team - Westside - July

    Put your useless knowledge to the test!

    Join the Sunday Assembly Pub Trivia Team for a second time in the month, this time in Santa Monica.

    In addition to our roving team that meets on the 1st. We are trying to find a Westside location to compete regularly. This month we're trying The Dudes' Brewing Company in the Santa Monica Place mall.
    Trivia starts at 7:30, but please try to arrive by 7:15 in case we have to divide into multiple teams.
    Look for familiar faces or a shirt with the familiar logo.

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

  • Last Sunday Family Supper - Angelus Place

    Looking for more opportunity to spend time with all your Sunday Assembly friends?

    Join us for dinner on the 4th Sunday of each month. We'll pick different restaurants around the city, or the occasional potluck at someone's house.

    This month there are five Sundays and there's a poker tournament on the 4th so we're going with the last Sunday. We're going to have a dinner party potluck in Venice hosted by James, Meredith and Ryan. 

    P.S. Family Dinner means your SALAmander Family. Families and kids are welcome, but not required.

  • SALA Pub Trivia Team - Roving - August

    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.

    After a huge win in July, we've decided to test out luck with the hardest quiz in town at O'Brien's in Santa Monica.

    Trivia starts at 8:00 pm, but please try to arrive by 7:45 incase we have to divide into multiple teams.

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

  • Venice Game Night 8/3

    Venice Game Night! 

    There's one every month, and it moves around to different days of the week. By popular request, we're hosting on a Friday this month. 

    Join us for board games, drinks, snacks and good company. We get started around 8:30, but feel free to come later, and we'll get you in a game. We've got an embarrassingly large collection. We're always happen to teach or to learn one of your favorites!

    Street parking is usually plentiful. If you're going to drink, please consider taking a Lyft! Your RSVP helps us plan!

  • Cinespia 8th Annual Slumber Party

    Cinespia Presents

    Enjoy a night at the movies under the stars! Join your fellow SALAmanders for a Cinespia triple feature at the 8th annual Slumber Party. There will be great company, picnic blankets, snacks and drinks (including wine and probably some cold brew coffee). You don't have to stay for all three movies (though you certainly can). Details below!


    From event website:

    the event...

    (1987-1998, 7:15pm-4am)
    Hollywood Forever Cemetery / $30
    gates 7:15 / movie at 9

    It’s double double toil and trouble and then some with witches all night long. The summer tradition is back with our 8th Annual Slumber Party, so assemble your coven for a night that’s wicked and wondrous in all the right ways!

    In THE CRAFT, three teenagers find a fourth to unleash their powers and turn high school into a bewitching scene where one glamour can change everything. Surviving the popular clique and thwarting the devil. All in a day’s witchcraft.

    At midnight, it’s time for some PRACTICAL MAGIC. Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman star as a divine sisterhood trying to break a family enchantment in order to find true love. Will they turn tears to cheers?

    At 2AM, THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK caps the night with a show-stopping coven. Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Susan Sarandon unite to wreak delicious havoc on little devil Jack Nicholson to teach him a lesson he’ll never forget. It’s the ultimate battle of the hexes!

    Magic fills Hollywood Forever with a specially-conjured photo booth. Be sure to visit our beer, wine, and coffee bar for the witches brew of your choice.
