Watch Mad Men in vintage style in Tucson, Sunday evenings? August 20, 2009 6:26 PM   Subscribe

Now that Season 3 of Mad Men has begun, I'm seeking a way to watch it weekly, and it occurred to me that we Tucson MeFites have an especially stylish way to do so....

... in The Shelter Cocktail Lounge. It's decorated in vintage JFK memorabilia, to give you a shorthand to the vibe there.

Would anyone be interested in meeting 10pm Sunday nights to watch an episode and drink a vodka gimlet?

Gosh, I am not in Tuscon and have not (yet) begun Mad Men, but that is such a great idea!

That would be so fun, assuming it's the right show for the interested MeFites.

OMG I proposed to the girl who took my virginity at The Shelter. She snubbed me for Colorado, but that place is still awesome. Nice pool table, too. Good times, wish I could come!

God damn that's an awesome-seeming bar.

I might be up for this.

Wait, what does this have to do with cortex?

Yes, I would totally, totally be up with this.

Like, a million times over.

For emphasis!

This is a neat idea.

For my purposes, cortex now equals Don Draper.

I'm so there! I get off work right at 10:00, so you'll have to excuse my late arrival and my smelling of booze and retail. I can miss the first few minutes. The bartenders at the Shelter make a fantastic Sidecar, which could be appropriately '60s while still satisfying my love for a good girly drink.

Wonderful, so it seems maybe a few of us do have the inclination to do this. I'm so glad. And The Potate, I know what I will be ordering. We can work our way, week by week, through their official cocktail guide (or follow our own interests).

Is this on for tonight?

If so, I am the The Potate's ride, so we'll both be a hair after 10.

How will the watching work? Do they regularly screen it on Sundays, or is this a special concession?

lizjohn, I'll have word on the status of it by 3pm local time today--final concessions need to be confirmed. I'll send you an email, then, and post here. (Or, if you'd like, email me, and I'll give you more direct contact info.)

Well, to close out this thread in a sad way--The Shelter doesn't have cable. So, The Shelter doesn't get Mad Men. I'll keep searching for a place to watch, but it won't be the same....
