Next Irvine Underground Meeting
2024.06.14 at Gulliver's, 7pm


Hello potential guests, visitors and members!

Irvine Underground meetings are held at 7pm on the second Friday of the month, every month.

We meet at Gulliver’s Restaurant on the bar patio
18482 MacArthur Blvd
Irvine, CA 92612

Alternatively, when we opt to mix things up, you may find us across the parking lot at El Torito

We occasionally host additional gatherings or events which may be posted to this site.
Please mark your calendars and this page for updates and we can all stay on the same page.

Since 2008, we met at the IHOP across the street from Gulliver’s. Back then, IHOP was open 24/7/365, and let us meet in their upstairs dining area. Starting March 2020, IVU shifted to virtual meetings.

In 2022, we returned to physical meetups, but learned that IHOP closed their second floor meeting space (and started closing at 8pm). If you remember eating pancakes with your hacker family, we’re still here! We’ve moved across the street from our old haunt to Gulliver’s, one of IVU’s original pregame spots.

Prior meeting locations:

  • Defcon @ Las Vegas, NV – Intermittent
  • Virtual @ Online – Lockdown Ended
  • IHOP @ Irvine, CA – Meeting Area Closed
  • Extreme Pizza @ Irvine, CA – Changed Owners

Still reading? Some members like to show up early for happy hour at Gulliver’s.
If you see any odd-looking technical folks who call themselves IVU while enjoying a steak sandwich, you’re in the right place
