I have received numerous requests from group members to schedule a night or nights to see Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as the modern-day Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson. How can we resist?! I have purchased Season 1 and 2 and each DVD has three episodes. Each episode is 90 minutes long. With the insane ending to Season Two, once you get hooked you will be dying to know just WTF happened!
In addition, there are a bunch of members who also want to watch the Doctor Who Xmas special as well since we will not have a group gathering to watch it Christmas night. Ask and you shall receive! Combo night!
I have asked my friend if we could use his HOA's community "House" and he said yes! We will occupy the entire second floor (see picture below). It cost me $50 to rent the place and I would appreciate any "donations" to cover the cost. So that night I propose the following viewing schedule:
4:00-4:30 pm: Meet and Greet
4:30-6:00 pm: Sherlock Season 1 - Episode #1
6:00-6:30 pm: Break
6:30-7:30 pm: Doctor Who Xmas Episode
7:30-8:00 pm: Break
8:00-9:30 pm: Sherlock Season 1 - Episode #2
9:30-10:00 pm: Discussion and Cleanup
As for food, we are doing a potluck night and ordering pizza. The place has a fully functioning kitchen, so if you need to heat stuff up or refrigerate or even cook, you are in luck. Please let me know what your preference would be. This will also be a BYOB (Bring Your Own Beverage) night unless we do a potluck night and I'll include it for people to bring. (Update: Thanks to Jared and Genevieve, I am bring a sizable contingent of sodas. You two are excused from having to bring anything else, but if others want to bring more, please do so).
Parking is on city streets (2 hour limit) but the good news is that it expires after 6 pm. Finding a spot is not easy, but there are plenty of places to look in the vicinity and you can just walk over. Carpool if possible but not required.
That's all for now. Look forward to seeing you all that night.
