Sci-Fi and Ice Cream meetup

 

Particularly good episodes of Babylon 5 and Blake's 7 this week.  Newcomers or regulars, this is one not to miss!

(For those familiar with the shows, no spoilers, please!) 


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.

 

The lineup for this time will be:

Babylon 5, Season 1, Episode 20, "Babylon Squared"
Blake's 7, Season 2, Episode 5, "Pressure Point"
Red Dwarf, Season 4, Episode 4, "White Hole"


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 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 101 North or 101 South, make a U-turn at Edgewater. 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. 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.

    How late does the event go? I.e. if I just wanted to catch the last show, roughly when would it be?

      I'll come again someday - I tend to play outside on weekends until almost dark. When it gets dark earlier I'll be more likely to watch TV on a weekend. Do you ever have any Friday night meetups?

    Great event, hot topic, cold ice-cream. We would dominate any "Sci-Fi Trivia Night"!

    I would love to join you but I have my kids on Sundays until 7:00 PM.
    Hopefully next meeting will be on different day or little later on Sunday.

    Checked anyway and couldn't find a babysitter. Ah well. Next time!

    We hate to miss these extra great episodes, but Noah and I are going to be out really late the night before to see a play in the city and I am afraid we will end up feeling too tired. We are really hoping to make it next month though. :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
