The Marc B. Lee Bowling Adventure!!
 

THE MARC B. LEE BOWLING ADVENTURE
Suggested Dates: March 24th, 25th or 26th, 2009

I've bowled at this location many times. It is incredibly awesome!! I'd like to have a few people join me for an evening of food, loud music and bowling at this place after we've done the "tourist thing" along Hollywood. It's connected to THE KODAK CENTER where the Oscars are held in downtown Hollywood. You can visit the website here. Click on LOCATIONS, find California and then Hollywood and go exploring on the site!

This is a preliminary plan and may fall thru all together but what the heck!! If you are interested, please add your name to the list so I can contact the lanes for a reservation. I can take a carload around Beverly Hills, Bel Air (I can't believe I'm doing this :hmm) and a few other sites if you'd like.

Included on this adventure is your MARC B. LEE BOWLING ADVENTURE membership card, a party hat and instructions on how to perform the secret handshake.

I can't make it Stateside for the con, but if you are ever in my part of England, Marc, I'll go bowling with you in Milton Keynes!

Oh, Milton Keynes hosts 'Collectormania' so you may get to find some of your sci fi buddies in the vicinity if you come when one is on.

It was at one of these events that I was lucky enough to meet Dean Stockwell..

Avilos 01-13-2009 03:52 PM

Count me in too!

I recently bowled again for the first time in years at my nephew's Birthday party. I did really bad....but it was fun!!!!

I think could do better now that I remember the basics. Seriously... ;)

Also I want to do the Hollywood tourist thing. ! I have been there before so was was not planning on any theme parks again. But there is a lot of free sightseeing to do. The Chinese Theater, the Walk of Fame, etc.

Umm...then Tom..ummm...how 'bout we fill in the list dude. OK. I know you're form Wisconsin and all but I would dare not call you a cheesehead unless I thought you actually were one so...umm...well..you know.

Sheesh! :banghead

Avilos 01-13-2009 04:21 PM

I work at Sargento Cheese Factory. I think that qualifies me as a Cheesehead!

Hey, count me in. But I think I'll leave my gear at home.

No jokes about my 14 pound balls... ;-)

I had to leave for work shortly after I read this. I misunderstood your post completely the first time .I thought by "filling in the list" you wanted more tourist suggestions. Not filling out the bowlers list....

Sorry...We have subzero temperatures right now...maybe my brain is frozen....

This sounds like fun! Count me in, too!

Maybe this time, I'll bowl better than last time. Last time, I was in a lane next to a guy who was bowling a perfect game. I was not bowling a perfect game. One ball I rolled went across my lane, into my left gutter, out of my left gutter, into Perfect Guy's lane, across Perfect Guy's lane, into Perfect Guy's left gutter, and down the hole at the end of Perfect Guy's lane. Perfect Guy was not amused. I got an extra roll.

You can throw me into the Kitty too. Only if it's done on the 26th though as I'm landing in LA on 25th in afternoon

I've never heard of a dress code at a bowling alley! Those CA people must do things differently than we do here...

Quote:

Dress Code Enforced After 7pm

Dress Code Strictly Enforced
The following are not permitted:


- Athletic wear, sweats or sports jerseys
- MC colors
- Excessively baggy clothing (Tuck-ins are not permitted)
- Sleeveless T-shirts
- Plain white T-shirts (short or long sleeve)
- Construction boots
- Headgear
- Chains
- Ripped or soiled clothing

The LA Live! Dress Code has the following amendment
- No Plain White Sneakers
What the heck are "MC colors"? :alien

MO 01-17-2009 03:19 AM

PS, I also vote for Thursday for the bowling and sightseeing. We should be checking into our hotel on Thursday. That's the plan, anyway. Unless I'm still high from smoking peace pipes in the desert...

EmmaCMF 01-17-2009 06:38 AM

According to google, MC Colors are Motorcycle Club patches.

MO 01-17-2009 06:54 AM

Ah, well, in that case, I guess I'm safe. I have a motorcycle, but I'm not in a club, and I won't have the bike with me.

Classical Theories 01-17-2009 09:32 AM

Chicken Boo: MC colors are motorcycle club colors. This bowling alley is really a "club" as well in the since that they play dj music and has a flair for Hollywood in terms of celebs and locals both playing there. It's a high tech place with a very cool atmosphere.

Cool, sounds fun! http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j3...ys/dance-1.gif

Will the music be really loud? Will it be as loud as, say, a Buffalo Wild Wings or Hooters? Also, will it be smoky inside?

(Loud, incessant noise gives my husband headaches, and smoke gives me headaches and difficulty breathing.)

bradinusa 01-20-2009 06:31 AM

I believe there is no smoking in any bars in California.

This sounds very fun, looks like a really cool place, what is the cost?

purple_rose 01-21-2009 10:52 AM

I arrive on the afternoon of the 25th. Can we PLEASe make it the 26th?

I would love to come and be greeted by some friendly faces:) I'm flying in from Down Under! (melbourne Australis!)

Fantastic!!

So Can I assume that we'll be taking a tour of the city during the day on Thursday the 26th, then hitting the lanes in the later evening?

What a stupendous way to begin my vacation! Can't wait:):)

Classical Theories 01-22-2009 11:18 AM

Sounds like a plan. Glad I could help.

Wow Marc, you really are a Mensch!!! :)

What a way to be welcomed... Can't wait!!! Do keep up posted.

Maybe we should all post our email addresses here and keep tabs?

How early do you think we'll be starting?

I arrive on the 25th. I'v booked to stay at the hotel on the convention for the 3 nights its on. I better call and see if I can stay there for the 2 nights prior aswell. That should be ok, do you think? I sure hope so :(

Classical Theories 01-23-2009 02:45 PM

URGENT!! MAY I HAVE THE EMAIL ADDRESSES OF ALL OF THOSE PLANNING TO ATTEND THIS ACTIVITY?

PLEASE SEND IT TO MARCBLEE@EMBARQMAIL.COM or in my personal pm box here on this forum.

Thank you for your immediate attention.

alsplacebartender 01-23-2009 09:04 PM

Looks like an awesome trip, Marc! Makes me wish I was an attendee instead of on the planning committee!

Thanks for arranging this for the fans - you guys are so lucky to be able to go to this! While you're taking in the sights and bowling with the stars, I'll be assembling your convention bags. LOL!!

Classical Theories 01-23-2009 11:44 PM

We'll be thinking of you Brian and I'm sure some of us will rush to your aide should you request it. We're there for 'ya so don't fret.

I've spent so much time in LA that I can make this a quick day. Besides, I have to be at LAX later that evening to pick up sparkyclarkie. Keep the bar open. We'll be there.

Avilos 01-24-2009 12:41 AM

hmmm... My flight will arrive at LAX at 12:05pm on Thursday March 26th....

Maybe I won't be able to join you all...

Classical Theories 01-24-2009 09:05 AM

You may STILL be able to my friend. I'm thinking of a time we all will start the bowling portion. You may miss the tour but don't fret, we may ALL be coming to the airport. I'll have to discuss this with the team.

Upside frowns may cure those downs. <I just made that up!>

sparkyclarkie 01-24-2009 09:20 AM

What you mean i may make it in time for the bowling? If thats the case count me in, suitcase and all.
I hope i can, i thought it would start before you picked me up. If it does save me a bar stool anyway.:cheers

Classical Theories 01-24-2009 09:47 AM

I'm not sure yet sparky but maybe. I may actually leave the group to come get you but we'll cross that road when we get there. Avilos gets in in the afternoon. You get in in the evening unless you can change your flight, but why pay the extre money just to go bowling?

Keep visiting the bowling site for updates.

Well I was hoping you might be able to pick me up before you bowl. But was not sure if I should suggest it, thinking it would be to far out of your way.

But if it would work out that would be great!!!

I could check in to the hotel after we are done bowling. It also helps that my roommate is part of our group! ;)

MO 01-24-2009 05:59 PM

Ok, we are supposed to check into our motel in Glendale on the 26th. Do I need to bump that up a day to the 25th, to not miss the tour? Keep in mind that we'll be camping along the way, and I have no idea where we'll wake up Thursday morning. Hopefully somewhere west of New Mexico.

Classical Theories 01-24-2009 09:57 PM

Ummm ChickenBoo, why don't you check into your motel very early on the 26th. VERY EARLY. Call them to see if it's possible. We will need ALL day on the 26th and we shouldn't have to wait on people.

See what you can do and let us know.

bradinusa 01-25-2009 06:12 AM

Guys,


We are arriving on 21st of March so 26th is a great date, especially to meet a few people the day before convention.

We will be happy with anything, a tour of L.A would be great, but only if it is not too much trouble. Such a nice gesture.

brad and Zoe
