Come join us as we watch and discuss HBO's series, GAME OF THRONES, based on George R. R. Martin's epic A Song of Ice and Fire series. This will be the third meetup for Season 3.
Please arrive on time, so that we can start watching the show without interruptions or delays. Space is limited, so we will be using a waiting list. RSVPs will be locked in 2 days prior (Thursday at 6:30 PM). If you RSVP yes, please make sure you come!*
We've been lucky enough to find another venue to host GoT nights with much higher capacity than ever before. We are asking that each attendee pay a small cost to help us defray the rental cost of the room and the expenses of the A/V equipment we've invested in to make this possible, but we'll only charge the equipment reimbursement fee for these events until those are recovered (hopefully by the end of summer). You may pay at the event with either a credit card ($10.52) or cash ($10 exact change, bills only).
This will be a potluck party (and we ask that everyone contribute), so please add a comment below as to what you'll be bringing no later than July 14. The event room will have a buffet area, but no stove or oven to reheat food. Alcohol is permitted for this potluck, but please drink responsibly and be careful about driving. Also, we are responsible for cleaning the room ourselves, so we ask for your help and cooperation in avoiding any messes, and quickly alerting us to any spills that occur. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions that others should be aware of.
The venue has parking restrictions, and you cannot park in the main parking lot. There is however, plenty of street parking available, and you'll receive an e-mail with details a few days before the event. The building is access-controlled, so from 6:30-7:00 we'll have someone waiting at the door to let you in and send you upstairs.
Since not everyone attending has read the books, we ask that you please be very careful not to discuss or hint at spoilers during the meetup (to use Pat Rothfuss' rule, if you have to wonder if it's a spoiler, it almost certainly is), and that you please do not talk while the shows are playing (we can discuss between episodes, or you can call out "Pause" as necessary). Your consideration is appreciated.
At this meetup we'll be watching the following episodes:
- Episode 3x05 - Kissed By Fire
- Episode 3x06 - The Climb
- Episode 3x07 - The Bear and the Maiden Fair
*Since missing one of these meetups is taking a spot away from someone else who wants to attend, we'll need to have a stricter attendance policy than normal. For DVD/TV nights, a no-show will prohibit you from attending any other space-limited DVD/TV night for 3 months after your no-show. In order to avoid a no-show, please update your RSVP no later than 48 hours before an event. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation!
