Message from the organizers: Nadya Ginsburg. The L.A.-via-N.Y. actress has done TV, film, commercials and loads of Internet videos, and currently writes the bitchy words that come out of Joan Rivers’ botox-smoothed mouth on E! Fashion Police. But she’s best known for her nearly dozen hysterical spoofs of the Queen of Pop.

Jelly Co-Working Day, Hot Dogs & Beer Happy Hour
Message From the Organizers: Come on in to Kleverdog Coworking, grab a chair at the big open desk, log in to the free wifi, grab yourself a beverage and a snack, and get some work done alongside other Los Angeles freelancers and creative minds. Bring your own lunch (we have a kitchenette with a refrigerator and microwave), or grab lunch at the many inexpensive restaurants in the area, or we could all order in, family style.
Be sure to say hello to the other coworkers, trade business cards, find out what everyone is working on. We can do a group show-and-tell at the end of the day or give a demo of your product/service and get some feedback. If you can’t stay for the whole day, why not just stop in and check it out and experience a little of what coworking is all about? AND, when the work day is done, stay for our HAPPY HOUR! Hot dogs and beer!
