Hello Desert Browncoats!

I've made reservations for the back room at Bill Johnson's Big Apple restaurant (yummy food!).

Date: Saturday, March 19th
Time: 6pm

Place: I picked the "Original" location because it's the most centrally located. Here's a map:

tohistory=&searchtab=home&address=3757+E.+Van+Buren+St&city=Phoenix&state=az&zipcode=85008


And here's the restaurant's website:

http://www.billjohnsons.com/

Please e-mail me or post in this thread if you want to come and approx. how many people you will bring. Thanks!

ETA: I put the reservation under "Dobson".

I'll be there!
If anyone needs a ride from the West side let me know.
Annie, what's on the itinerary for the evening?

And thanks for putting it together. You rock!

Yay! I'm thinking that you, me, and Oog can caravan. She's down near Metro Center and I'm pretty near you. Your car or mine, either way is fine with me.

No specific itinerary. Right now all I can think of is FOOD! I work on kind of a primal level. :)

But if Ha(s)ufel comes, hopefully he'll regale us with tales of meeting the Cap'n and Adam at the Pasadena event that he's going to... well, right at this moment, actually!

Also, if you and Oog are up to it, we can wander around the Chinese cultural center that's nearby. I like that place...

I'm also hoping to have my copy of "BWAH!" printed up by then (the game modified from "BANG!" by I-can't-remember-who on this board).

Otherwise, we'll just have to chat and be charming to one another. :)

Actually, that's great. I keep meaning to see that place and have not had a chance to yet.

I can regale. Once I was laconic.

I'll bring my 'puter again, and I thought it would be interesting to compare some scenes from the original Serenity pilot with the DVD version. The original did not have Greg Edmondson's music, and that's really made me appreciate how much impact Greg's music had.

Also, maybe it's time for a trivia challenge. Everyone bring their questions. We could try some variants. Maybe a Jeopardy type thing - give the answer and try to guess the question. Like "Bester's prairie harpy".

I had a little spelling problem when I registered a while back. I'm taking advantage of my new gmail account to change that. So henceforth, with or without an S, this is me.

If/when you need directions to my place, just drop me a line. :) fsfanatic@myway.com If you want to get to know a bit about me, my family website is at: http://www.fsfanatic.com/sahmom/index.html

A friend of mine took me with her in November to the Chinese Cultural Center but would love to go again! That place is so neat!! They have a little shop that sells Chinese stuff, too. Nothing that says "Serenity" in Chinese, unfortunately. But who knows what new stuff they got in since then.

*Squee* I'm so excited!!! I'm jotting the date/time down on my calendar and heading off to my online calendar to set a reminder!!

Hi all,

NeoTokyo pointed out to me that the restaraunt is not in the best area of town (like most of downtown Phoenix) and suggested picking a different location.

I'm hesitant for a couple of reasons: 1. I don't want anybody to get confused and go to the wrong one and 2. It would mean that either the Mesa people would have to drive farther, or us Westerners would...

But I thought I'd see if anybody else has an opinion on the matter. I'm not personally worried, but I understand why some might be... Thanks!

Honest, it's not like downtown. It's out at 40th St. and it's right beside the relatively new Gateway Community College. Plus, it's only about a mile from the Chinese Cultural Center which is a nice side destination. I think it's a fine location.

Reminder of the shindig this Saturday!

Lurkers welcome. ;)

Also some questions:
1. Nametags—Dorky or helpful?
2. Oog, where do you want me to pick you up? I work near where you live, so I’m a little familiar with the area. I figure I can meet you about 4:30ish.
3.Beatle, are you driving separately or do you want me to pick you up?

Shindig details—
Date: This Saturday, March 19th 6:00 pm

Location: Bill Johnson’s Big Apple Restaurant (Original Location)
3757 E. Van Buren St., Phoenix, AZ 85008

http://www.billjohnsons.com/

http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?searchtype=address&country=US&add
tohistory=&searchtab=home&address=3757+E.+Van+Buren+St.&city=Phoenix&state=AZ&zipcode=85008


It’s really easy to spot on the south side of the road (I tend to get lost often, but I found it no problem). Just in case, you might want to bring the restaurant’s phone number: (602) 275-2107

I reserved the back room for us for 6pm under "Annie."

Oog and I (and possibly more) will be hanging out at the Chinese Cultural Center beforehand. If anyone wants to join, just let me know so we can meet!

I will meet you there because I will be coming from somewhere other than our side of town.

Ooh, good question! From the website ( http://www.phxchinatown.com/retail_shops.html), it looks like most of the stores are open til 6pm or later on Saturday. So we should be fine. Plans are to hang out there for about an hour, then go over to Bill Johnson's.

Hey Spaceman,

I tried to e-mail everyone through their profile. Did you not get it? I'm sure we'll do more things. If nothing else, I'm sure we'll get together for the premiere. If anyone has any ideas for a good theater to go to for that, speak up! I know that Beatle mentioned a dinner theater that we could rent out, which would allow us to show the DVDs, too. But that was a bit expensive. Still, it's good to hear all the options. Hmm. What day of the week is the premiere? Do we want to do a full-blown all-day event of some sort? Remember, there's going to be a lot more local fans by then... This is going to be fun, no matter what. :)
