Olympic Opening Ceremony Watching Party

Postby singaporexpat » Sun, 03 Aug 2008 10:44 pm

Hey All,

The Opening Ceremony of the Beijing Olympics is this Friday, 08/08/08 at 20:08:08. I've followed the preparation for the games pretty avidly, and am looking forward to watching what promises to be a prodigal opening ceremony of truly epic proportions, celebrating China in all its glory.

I just moved here a month ago from the US, and instead of watching the opening ceremony alone, I thought it might be nice to get a group of people together, get some beer, and make a night out of it.

Post and tell me if this interests you. This is kind of putting the cart before the horse, but if you have a spacious apartment and a large TV, and find yourself with a yearning to play host to this gathering, that would be awesome.

-Michael

Thought I'd share an interesting photo essay I saw in FP online, about all aspects of China's Olympic preparations.

Hey, I would be open to watching it in a bar or on a public television, but I really do want to watch it-- I don't want to just kind of "have it on in the background.' I can't think of an appropriate place off the top of my head, but do tell me if you have any ideas.

Large TV?

Postby Renewed » Mon, 04 Aug 2008 8:09 pm

I searched for big screen TVs feeding olympics live and didn't find one

OK I guess the realistic thing to do is finalize on who has a large TV at home? We have a small one and I'm at Jurong east.

Hmmm... No luck so far???
I'll check the thread till I leave office tomorrow.
If no place were found till then, I might just head to a sport bar in Clark Quay, Robertson Quay, or Holland V to try our luck...

I am a 21/m American, I have been following the thread...So you guys are going to meet at a bar to watch it tonight then? Could you explain where the bar is, I would like to join as well?

Also, how many people are going to show? It seems like there is a good little group.

Guess what? They're showing Olympic Opening Ceremony!!
My friend & I will be there by 1930 at the latest.
