This is a carryover from Serebo1's Australia thread on OT but for the Malaysia GP this coming Saturday (3/22). Race start time according to Speed is 11:30pm PST.

I can host this race at my place, but I'm also open to doing this elsewhere if someone else has a bigger venue that works. My condo is in the Koreatown area, on Wilshire and Western, across the Wiltern theater. TV is a 65" DLP, decent sound system, stocked mini-bar, and a crapload of beer left over from last weekend - Fat Tire, Hefe (don't ask, I didn't bring it), Bud Light, Corona, and Amstel Light. My building also has two gas grills on the rooftop if we want to do any late night grilling. The rooftop area with unobstructed city views makes for a good hangout spot before the race starts.

We can also use the secured parking garage for the building to park our cars - the building's over half empty and there are plenty of unused parking spaces.

In terms of capacity, I can hold as many people that were at Serebo1's house last weekend. If the group gets to over 15 people, I don't think my place can support it comfortably.

Thoughts?

you didn't miss much, here's a brief synopsis:

1. LH dominated all race
2. Every one else looked terrible without t.c. to rely on
3. Less than half the field finished
4. Ferrari didn't finish a car
5. Kimi (defending champion) had an unexplainable fascination with the gravel
6. Several crew members were ran over
7. F1 dropped the ball on several black flags

If anyone wants to swing by for this race, PM me for address and phone #.

Pre-race drinking festivities will probably start around 10pm, I might throw something on the grill during that time as well.

I had to jump in the shower and put all my clothes in the washing machine as soon as I got back - I smelt like an ashtray! Had a great time all the same.

I'm thinking about joining you 'sleeprfocus' - but it is a bit late : possibly past my bedtime!

What about a Sunday morning meeting somewhere - nobody watches the race and so watch it pseudo live ? (no peeking at the results online)
