Cosmos watching "party" - it's ON

I found a place - a small, neighborhood pizza place, called Bartoli's - that has agreed to show Cosmos on their tv on Sunday nights at 8:00pm on Fox TV and see how it goes.

So people are invited to come watch the show and hang out a bit after if you want to discuss.  It's pretty quiet on Sunday nights, mostly doing take-out and delivery so this might be a good option.  They have a menu of pizza and some sandwiches and salads.  You don't have to eat.  (They have no liquor license, so no beer.)  If no one shows up, no big deal.  If 30 people show up, well, then we'd have to find a larger place, but I'm not worried at this point.

Bartoli's is just east of Damen Av. (2000 W) on Addison St. (3600 N).  It's 2 blocks west of the Brown Line El stop at Addison and served by both the #50 Damen and #152 Addison CTA bus routes.  Plus, street parking in the neighborhood is FREE.

So, there you have it.  Others should feel free to pursue venues in your own cities for those in your area, or for a Monday night (when it airs at 9pm on National Geographic TV) and post as a separate meetup.  It runs for 13 weeks, after all, so there's time.

      Yes, Beth, it certainly can be weekly. I couldn't be there on the 16th but can on the 24th. How can it be posted as a recurring event for the 13 week duration??

      I'll look into it, and regardless I'll make you the host so you can update the info as needed. :) THANK YOU for setting this up!

    I found a place for Cosmos and changed the above info. If this location or time doesn't work for you, please create your own! I think it'd be cool to have multiple ones around the area. (As a separate event. Please don't change the above if you don't like it.) This is an experiment; we'll see what happens.

      Greetings? Is it for real? I called to ask, they know nothing about COSMOS, or was it nothing about the cosmos? In any case, guy on the phone was clueless about the screening of the show.

    I won't be able to make it to this one since I already had plans, but I hope the place'll be willing to host in following weeks!

    Sounds great! People might not go every week, but often. Too bad the Geek Bar isn't open yet!
