The Shelter, Tucson's JFK-era vintage cocktail lounge, has agreed to play Episode 13 of Mad Men, Season 4's final episode, for us MeFites if we bring it in. I hope you'll join me for an old-fashioned tomorrow at 9PM.
Last season I had the idea of gathering at The Shelter Cocktail Lounge, Tucson's JFK-era cocktail lounge, to watch episodes of Mad Men. (That thread is here:

Now, The Shelter has agreed to play a DVD of the episode if we bring it in. So, I am going to close out Season 4 in vintage style at The Shelter, tomorrow night at 9PM. I hope you'll join me for an old-fashioned.

Hells yes I'll be there! My husband, The Potate, will be there too, so that's my plus one.

Nice! Now I think they'll be at least four attending, so we can play tabletop Pac-Man afterward.

Vintage clothing of course advisable, if you can swing it!

No, none too dorky! None too dorky at all! See the comment I posted simultaneously, below you.

While not quite full vintage, I'll be wearing a (true) vintage Mickey Mouse t-shirt and The Potate will be wearing a vintage-style monorail shirt.

Hey lizjohn and The Potate, not sure if you check MetaFilter through your phone. But, assuming you can and are already settled at The Shelter, wanted to let you know I am on my way, and should be there by half past nine. Hope you can occupy yourselves until then! If you email me I can send you my phone number.

It's cool, there's plenty here to occupy ourselves :)

"That's good news!," I say cheerfully. I am having issues getting my episode of Mad Men onto DVD. If I can get it written at all, it's going to be half past ten before I can get there. Do you think we could defer this a day, so I can get my DVD in order?

I'm so sorry. You're already in the midst of a "meetup," though in your guys' case I guess it also counts as just a couple's night out. I hope we can make this work.

Either tonight sans DVD, or we could just meet up tomorrow for quiz night!

To clarify, that's totally cool to defer. The Potate's kind of a cheap date and he's already getting out of hand.

I think I've shot through this evening, and tomorrow I'm afraid I have a very late meeting. However, I could do Mad Men avec DVD on Wednesday or Thursday? And, yes to trivia, please, though I may have to defer that a week. But, let's talk! I sent you MeFi Mail.
