    Event Information:
    The holiday season is here again! We can't believe it either. The good news is it's time for our annual Holiday Networking Reception! This year we'll be hosting it at the Crocker Club in Downtown Los Angeles. This swanky underground club was built in an old bank from circa 1920. In fact, we'll be hosting our event in the bank's original vault! Take a break from some of the holiday chaos to network and celebrate with your favorite group of engineers, friends, and co-workers. Appetizer buffet will be provided. 
    Cost is $5 for ASCE members, $10 for non-members, and FREE for students (21+ only - sorry!). Capacity is limited so don't delay!
    RAFFLE OPPORTUNITY: It is the holidays, so let's give back! Bring an unwrapped children's/young adult book to be donated to Toys for Tots and enter to win one of our great raffle prizes!
    Lastly, don't forget to look good! Crocker Club does enforce a dress-code: Find out more here.
    What: Annual Holiday Networking Reception
    When: Thurs, Dec. 10th, 2015, 6pm-9pm

    Event Information:

    Join ASCE LA YMF in celebrating the holiday season as we watch Gremlins on the big screen of the beautiful vintage Palace Theater. Before the movie, there will be DJs spinning records, special holiday cocktails, and a free photobooth. For those of you unfamiliar with the film, see below for a brief description:
    Just in time for Christmas, Billy gets a very unusual pet. The mogwai are an ancient and adorable species, and Gizmo is no exception. But break the three cardinal rules and chaos gets loose! When a boy gets a mogwai as a present, he accidentally unleashes a monster invasion on his tiny town. Imaginative wild fun from master director Joe Dante, Gremlins is a blast as it turns Christmas on it’s head!

    Cost is $15 for ASCE members, $20 for non-members (21+ only – Sorry!)
    Register here (Very limited amount of tickets available)

    What: Gremlin’s with ASCE LA YMF
    When: Saturday, Dec. 19th, 2015, 7:30pm-11pm (movie starts at 9pm)
    Where: Palace Theater (615 S. Broadway Los Angeles 90013)
