Final viewing parties, NEW ORLEANS style

A few of us are having a viewing at Squeal BBQ in NEW ORLEANS on Oak Street in the Carrollton area.


I think most people who will be there are in their 20s or 30s, maybe some older. The more the merrier! I'm hoping by the final we will have a good group. I'm enjoying these final episodes too much to watch them alone before going out so I might as well combine socializing and the show.We will have a viewing at 9PM (everyone can come at 8 to start the drinking early) every Friday leading up til the final. Come get a beer, maybe some food...and share in BSG New Orleans style!

Re: Final viewing parties, NEW ORLEANS style

We just had 2 people. Heh.
But the Maple Leaf was pulling them in...you could hear the music waft on over..

However, we did have the projector...and beer...and onion rings, and shrimp. I wanted to go out to Frenchman St. afterward actually but I became a touch tipsy during BSG so I didn't go out.
So all n all, I enjoyed it...and look forward to this weekend again.

People want to come but this city being what it is...still its better to catch a few episodes with some other people than alone.

Hmmm - Can't do it this Friday, but maybe next for part 1 of the finale...? Might be able to con a friend or two into joining me as well...

Sounds like a fun time. Pity I'm in the Bay Area because I would definately go if I was in NO. Hope the gatherings are going well.

Re: Final viewing parties, NEW ORLEANS style

I was thinking of watching the last episode on my old 12 inch black and white with a bowl of General Tso's chicken in one hand and a brick in the other (just in case -- I don't want to ruin a good tv).


I wonder which will be 2009's bigger disappointment -- the BSG finale, or Trek XI.

Re: Final viewing parties, NEW ORLEANS style

How was the crowd last night? I'm pretty sure I can make it this coming Friday, but can't promise anything yet...

We had 3, and should be 4 or more next week...with of course food and drink.



If you come it should be at least 5

Re: Final viewing parties, NEW ORLEANS style

Cool deal - I'm planning at the moment to be there, barring other circumstances. I may be able to bring a friend along, but that's a bit less definite. Looking forward to it! I've never watched BSG on anything but a small screen, and with no more than a close friend. At the end of the series, it feels right to join with a few others to commemorate the event!

Anybody want to watch it in West Lafayette, IN, hit me up, i do have a 46 inch LCD in my dorm.
But the odds of someone living in this little town are miniscule.
