Sci-Fi and Ice Cream meetup

I will have pizza, snacks, and of course plenty of ice cream. If people want to bring additional snacks they are welcome, but please don't feel obligated to bring anything but yourselves.

For those of you who are first timers, the idea is to get pick a few series and get together every two weeks to watch them in order, from the beginning.


IMPORTANT NOTE: For those of you who have been here before, please note the NEW callbox number: 070


The lineup for this time will be:

Babylon 5, Season 1, Episode 14, "TKO"
Blake's 7, Season 1, Episode 13, "Orac"
Red Dwarf, Season 2, Episode 15, "Polymorph"

Directions and Parking:

860 Meridian Bay Lane, Unit 341
Foster City, CA, 94404

Callbox code '070'


This is what you are looking for:  picture/map


Meridian Bay Lane is really just the driveway for the Meridian Bay Condo complex where I live. It's off Hillsdale Blvd, just West of the Hillsdale/Edgewater intersection. It's on the North side of Hillsdale, near a Bank of America and an Am/Pm.

If you are coming East on Hillsdale Blvd from the 101, make a U-turn at Edgewater and Meridian Bay Lane will be immediately on your right. If you are coming South on Edgewater from the 92, make a right on Hillsdale Blvd, and Meridian Bay will also be immediately on your right.

There is plenty of open visitor parking under the 860 building (the one on your left with the big white ‘860’ on it).

Once you park under the building, there is a silver callbox on the left-hand side. The code is 070, or if you forget the code you can look up EBERT in the callbox directory. Enter the code and it will ring me and I'll buzz you in.

Once I buzz you in, DO NOT take elevator #5 immediately on your left. Take elevator #7, which is further away on your right, to the third floor. Turn left out of the elevator and my door will be straight ahead, #341.


WARNING: Some map/GPS software seems to want to put people on Sea Spray Lane (behind the complex) instead of Meridian Bay Lane.    If you find yourself on Sea Spray Lane, Don't Panic!   Proceed East on Sea Spray Lane toward Edgewater, turn right on Edgewater, right again on Hillsdale, and Meridian Bay Lane will be immediately on your right.
