Bored Apes Are Taking Over California. Find Out Where And When You Can Meet Fellow BAYC Members:
There will be two Bored Ape Yacht Club get togethers happening later this month in California.
As the BAYC continues to grow in popularity, so has Ape's interest in meeting Ape's in real life.
BAYC Community grant recipient, Josh Ong, announced his project, Ape Meetups - the first in real life event happening later this month.
"Los Angeles, we're doing this, Ong tweeted. “Bored Ape LA Meetup. July 20 Venice DM for details.”
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Ong was awarded the $1,000 BAYC community grant last month.
Ong told the Gazette his hope for the Ape Meetups project is for apes to connect with other apes.
“I know apes love hanging out online and in the metaverse, but building community in person is powerful too,” Ong said. “As we get to know the other members of BAYC near us, I believe positive and creative things will happen.”
Ape Meetups event is not the only Bored Ape get together happening in the Golden State later this month. The Aped Collective’s, Aped LA, is also happening on July 31st.
“The inaugural APED event is taking place in Venice Beach, CA on July 31st," The Aped Collective tweeted. “Free for all who want to attend! Join us in this community event For Apes by Apes in a night that will be APEsolutely special”
The Aped event is being held at 62 Winward Avenue Venice, CA from 7-9 pm.
