Suggest A Location for the SS&R Game 5 Watch Party

7
[Reposted to keep at the top so everyone gets a chance to see this.] 16 people said they wanted to come to the Game 4 Watch Party, but no one did (or at least, no one found me there – I will have a nice big sign for the Game 5 Watch Party). I have a sneaking suspicion that having it at Buffalo Wild Wings, 30 miles east of L.A. proper, may have discouraged many people from coming. So here's what I propose. You suggest a good location for our Game 5 Watch Party, one that a lot of people could make it to. I need to make the announcement tomorrow morning, so I need a really good suggestion by tonight, or early tomorrow morning at the latest. If we don't get any good suggestions by tonight, the wife and I will be at Buffalo Wild Wings. Personally, I'd prefer that, because the place has seven huge screens, awesome wings... and it's Sunday, so people should have plenty of time to drive a few extra miles and get there early. But we want you guys to be able to come. So – Where should we have the Game 5 Watch Party, so that lots of SS&R people can come?

11

Previewing Game 2 of the 2009 NBA Finals, where this is a must-win for the Magic, Kobe Bryant is unstoppable, and Lamar Odom can actually be counted on to deliver.
