Cosmos watching "party" is ON

The small, neighborhood pizza place, called Bartoli's, has agreed to show Cosmos on their tv on Sunday nights at 8:00pm and see how it goes.

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 and post as a separate meetup.   ~ Monica

    My head is spinning around the venue changes ;). I actually preferred the Firehouse Grill in Evanston. I do not know if they can meet your viewing requirements. But, the second floor is a great private space for a group.

      There really was no "first location." I threw out the idea; others changed the location w/out confirming it was an option. I strongly encourage you to call Firehouse and see if they'll host. If they will, post it as another event and everyone in the Evanston area can go there. I think it'd be cool if there were several locations where this happens.

    I'm going to miss the first two but should make the rest. Well done Monica. Thanks for setting this up.

    Will there be a sign or something so we can spot the group?

    I'm quite happy about the current location - Right on the Brown line is perfect! I will see you folks there.

    See above - I found a place to at least try and have edited the location info above. Sorry if this doesn't work for those in suburbs, but please create your own! (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.

    Hi Tobi - did you change the location of the Cosmos watching party because you talked to the Firehouse and they're willing to let everyone gather there on Sunday nights? - Monica

    Downtown is way too far for me to travel...

  • Cristal G.

    I would be interested in either night, but would likely not be able to attend every viewing.

  • Scott S.

    Sound like fun Monica. I would not be able to make it every Sunday night but Mondays would not work for me.

    I have never seen "Cosmos" so I am curious. Mondays are okay. Sundays are better.

    March 5, 2014

  • Jessica W.

    Definitely interested! Sundays or Mondays are fine.

    It would very much depend on the location. I'm in the far NW suburbs. I might be able to talk someone at the Woodstock Challenger Center into something like this.

    I would love to attend this. Sunday night is fine with me, and so is any other night.

    I'd do it but only Sun nights work since I travel for work.
