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. 

  • Venice Game Night 5/29

    Join us for our monthly game night. We have a large collection of games we're happy to teach. 

    As always, feel free to bring or request your favorites. 

    We would love it if you bring a snack or drink to share. Your RSVP helps us plan. Thanks!

  • SALA Pub Trivia Team - June

    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, allows for different nights of the week, and different locations around town.

    In June join us at a new location, Tejano Tex-Mex 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. 

    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.

  • SALA Book Club - "Americanah"

    This month we're reading the best selling novel Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

    Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion—for each other and for their homeland. 

    Book Cover

    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 will meet to discuss a new book on the 1st Sunday of each month. The person who nominated the winning book hosts at their home or a public location (coffee shop etc.) of their choosing.

    This month Aurora will be hosting in Sherman Oaks. The location is TBD and will be emailed out to those that RSVP.

  • SPLASH - Drinking Skeptically - June

    Assemblers are invited to join the South Pasadena Local Area Secular Humanists (SPLASH) for their monthly meetup "Drinking Skeptically.

    Please join us the second Tuesday of each month at GALANGA THAI TAKE TWO in Pasadena any time between 5-9pm. There is no hard start time.

    We have no real agenda other than to relax and have fun in a non-religious setting with supportive, like-minded people. Please note: both agreements and disagreements are expected, but please keep it civil. :)

    For more information or to get in touch with the organizer please see their Meetup Event Page.

  • GISHWHES - the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen

    GISHWHES is a scavenger hunt with hundreds of challenges, a lot of which help your community. My team is LAGishers. I did it last year and it was really fun. 

    My idea for our team is to not be competitive. To get as many team members together in the same location, maybe even have a campout (I have a huge backyard) or sleepover and do as many tasks as we can, especially the ones that are appealing to us. And then let it go, knowing we had fun, made better friendships and helped people.

    Description from :

    gishwhes is the largest, most popular scavenger hunt where you and your friends create weird and crazy art, engage in heartwarming acts of kindness, and attempt amazing challenges to weirdify your world, at home or in public. Thousands of people play every year from over 100 countries  

    Watch the video for more explanation.

    I hope you join us!
