These are already happening all over the country, so rather than let others steal our local thunder, we’re hosting a Watch Party for all eight episodes at different locations around the city, with a special emphasis on the Premier and Finale. These are free and open to the general public. Several of the locales were filming locations for the show. Events run 6:30-8:30. Shows begin at 7pm and will close with a Talking Bad chat segment.

Various personalities who acted and worked on the show may be making guest appearances. The Supper Truck will be cooking up (pun intended) some BrBa inspired eats. Baillios is sponsoring and providing additional wide screen sets. Add in arts and treats from other locals (the Candy Lady, Rebel Donut, Gorilla Graphix, A Good Sign) and the evenings are sure to represent the 505 in style.
