The One Where MeFi LA Visits the Shuttle
posted November 23, 2012 8:23 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sun December 9 at 2:30 PM, California Science Center
700 Exposition Park Dr, Los Angeles, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
*EDIT* I changed the meetup time to 2:30 since that's when we'll be meeting, but you should still buy tickets for 3:00! The Space Shuttle Endeavor has just come to LA, and I'd love to get acquainted with it along with some fellow MeFites. There's a $2 ticket fee, you should buy your tickets for the 3:00 show here http://www.californiasciencecenter.org/ (we're meeting at 2:30 to organize ourselves before going in)

At some point I'll need to get a list of people who are going to buy the tickets, it'll make more sense to buy as a group than individually.

We may be interested, depending on what our schedule shapes up to be that weekend. Keep us updated!

Oh that sounds really, really fun! I love the science center.

Heisenberg and I are interested! We would want to see the shuttle, but skip the IMAX movie.

Yeah, I'm a skip for the IMAX but I'll be there to gawk at the shuttle.

I'm also in for the shuttle, but not the IMAX. See you all Sunday!

Is there a specific place we should meet? Are there front doors or a cafe or foyer or something? I'm going to be biking over, so I'll probably take 8th (from around Western) east to Fig if anyone wants to join up along the way.

Hey guys, hmmm, I'm not sure about a specific place having not seen the shuttle thing, in lieue of that how bout we meet around the ticket boot for the science center, there's a courtyard there?

Also, I'm going to buy 6 tickets for now, since they're so cheap ($2).

Ok, so I've bought 6 tickets, which means I have 2 spare to cover the 10 maybes. At the moment that means sp160n, Sara C., ljshapiro, and Deoridhe are covered!

If anyone else wants the other two post a comment on this thread. Otherwise, buy your own for the 3PM show this sunday here: http://www.californiasciencecenter.org/

May heisenberg & I claim those two tickets? We will definitely be there. sp160n, I'll text you now so that you have my number.

You got it insectorsaurus! For the rest of the maybes buying a ticket should be easy off the site I linked to in NY previous comment.

Thanks for buying the tickets. Looking forward to Sunday!

Great! I should mention, we should all meet at 2:30 to try and make the 3:00 viewing!

I'm in, just bought my ticket
posted by TheJoven at 11:12 PM on December 6, 2012


Fantastic, FYI, I changed the stated time to 2:30 to give us 30 minutes to coordinate ourselves, tickets should still be bought for 3
