Watering hole: Culver’s Club in the Doubletree Hotel, Culver City, CA

Fight Card: The Cozy Writers vs the Noir Scribes

  1. Good morning. I was just browsing your web site and wanted to say that the conference you guys attended looks like it was a great time. The pictures really tell that story; good job on the camera. Even with the lighting you did a good job sharing the event with us mere mortals. 😉
    Take care and keep up the good work.

  2. Looks like a knockdown, dragout, fight night at the Culver. Entertaining, too!
