I thought a non-screening Browncoat gathering might be a fun thing to do as mentioned in another thread. Here were some suggestions I made:

There is a resturant in Burbank/Toluca Lake called "Sebastians" that has a back room you can rent out. The room has a flat screen plasma tv, pool table and comfy couches. They serve gourmet fries, sandwiches, salads and soups (price range is about $8-14). They cater to vegetarians and vegas as well as the meat eaters. They don't charge for renting the room. We could watch a couple of the episodes and meet fellow browncoats. Sebastians would be good for about 30-50 people.

There is always a Browncoat pot luck BBQ. Have fun little games and whatnot. I was at a Lord of the Rings one that was pretty fun. No reason why we couldn't do the same. We could even have a squirt gun shootout. This would be good for a really big group and could invite broawncoats from other web boards.

We could schedule it for the weekend after the comic starts or the action figures come out or just pick a random weekend that works. We could probably keep track of everyone the easiest through evite.

Other suggestions are more than welcome.

Sebastians sounds good to me. I have the next couple of months off. Therefore, I can come any weekend in June, July and the begining of August.

Does that plasma TV come with a good sound system? Can we turn it up loud? Will the bar complain if we sing The Ballad of Jayne?

It's a decent sound system and the room in the back is far enough from the main restaurant that we can sing pretty loud.

I checked with Sebastians and found out that because I'm a regular, pretty much any Saturday is open for me. So I was thinking either the last Saturday in July or the first in August.

I can book it from say six to midnight. If no one shows, then worse case I sit and watch 6 hours of Firefly on a big couch on a plasma screen eating the best gorrum fries in the 'verse.

So who's in?

I'll bring the episodes and I'm thinking of making the sign from Shindig opening to hang next to the pool table.

I'll give it a week and see if anyone else weighs in one way or another.

hello Fangirl,
a newbie Browncoat here. I live in Burbank behind Ikea so Sebastians would be a stone's throw from me. Just give enough notice as to when would be a good time and let's do it! It'd be fun meeting other fans.

I have a call into book the room for Saturday, July 30th. Once I get confirmation, I'll make an evite and post it up with all the details. You should be able to add yourself, but if not, I'll give you guys an email and add you to it. It'll give me a vague idea as to how many to expect.

I didn't realize until I was there yesterday how much that room feels like Inara's shuttle only with a pool table instead of a bed.

I tried getting July 30th, but turns out they have an art exhibit that day and it wasn't put on the books when I checked.

So I had to book it for August 6th from 6pm to midnight. I'm sorry bruisersmom. Can you maybe stop by for a bit before your bro's party?

I'm going to do my best to grab a few people's attention at comicon next week. I'm going to tell Dark Horse. See if they donate some comic books as give aways.

Current stats, four weeks in advance:
26 invitations sent
14 Yes, +2 Guests
3 No, with Regrets -- they'll all be off the continent
1 Mebbe
8 No response (I expect 2 of them to reply this coming week, but I don't know which way)

These numbers are slightly different from what's on Evite, 'cause I've heard from a couple of folks who haven't responded through Evite.

Kathy, will 16 warm bodies fit in the back room @Sebastian's? How 'bout 24?

Sebastain's can hold 50 plus people in the back. After 30 though, it makes it difficult to play pool.

I'll be at comicon this week. I'm going to talk to Dark Horse and let them know we're doing a little shindig and see if they can do anything for us.

Hey fangirl,

I was at comic-con too and stopped by the Serenity booth several times as well as the fan meeting/raffle on Sunday. I mentioned our little screening shindig there briefly but there seemed to be few LA browncoats there. Lots fomr SF, SD, East Cost and even Australia but maybe like 3 seemed to be LA area folk. Odd.

Also bummed my friends missed the screening they had there last minute but oh well. I went to the Joss and cast panel on Serenity too- I know that hall is super-large but if you saw a guy in an old school 1940's monochrome Superman costume, that was me. (My Mal coat is still being finished otherwise I'd have dressed appropriately)

I bought the Finding Serenity book and one of those great art prints of the whole crew by Jason Palmer. oddly aside fomr some extra art for a friend that was all I bought at the con this year. Now to get a Blue Sun t-shirt....

Anyway can't wait to meet you all there and watch some Firefly!
