An Invitation to the June 2017 Los Angeles Area Meeting

At the June 2017 luncheon in Los Angeles, presenter Bill Altaffer will share his adventures and incredible photographs of The Altay mountains of Central Asia

Our next quarterly meeting of the TCC Charter Chapter (Los Angeles/Orange County) will be held on Saturday, June 10, at the historic Tam O’Shanter Inn in Los Angeles, where popular presenter Bill Altaffer will share his adventures and incredible photographs of The Altay, the mountain range in Central and East Asia where Russia, Mongolia, China and Kazakhstan all converge.

The Tam O’Shanter, Los Angeles’ oldest restaurant operated by the same family in the same location, will be celebrating its 95th anniversary the month we meet! The restaurant is located just a few blocks east of Interstate 5 (Golden State Freeway), using the Los Feliz Boulevard exit from either the north or south. It is near Griffith Park to the west and Glendale to the east, and is just north of Dodger Stadium and south of the L.A. Zoo. Easy to find; if coming from the south, just stay on Interstate 5 past Downtown L.A., exiting at Los Feliz Boulevard.
