Girl In Gold Boots!

Sex! Crime! A guy who looks kind of like Stacy Keach! The seedy underbelly of Los Angeles is laid bare for us in January's episode. There are even multiple women who wear gold boots, though the boots don't figure into the plot as heavily as the title suggests.

Michelle is a waitress who we are told is a great dancer (though what we are shown is best described as "cognitive dissonance") and Buz is a lowlife with aspirations of a career in crime in the City of Angels who needs gas money. This unlikely pair joins Critter, a wayward hipster with a broken motorcycle and several potentially career-starting songs in his heart. There's a caper, and a fist fight and dune buggy rides on the beach! What more could a movie offer you? You know, aside from likeable characters, talented actors, a coherent narrative or any of the other things you're supposed to learn about in film school?

Just a reminder: the raffle drawing will be held at Girl In Gold Boots. You don't have to be present to win, but it would certainly make it easier on me.

We meet at the Irish American Heritage Center in the Fifth Province, the center’s pub located on the first floor (look for a group of folks wearing name badges). Sometimes there will be an event charging money at the door; that's not us. You're welcome to walk past them and come find us. The evening starts at 6:00p for dinner/drinks in the pub (menu consists of burgers, fish & chips, sandwiches, and Irish fare such as Sheperd's Pie). At around 7:30p, we go to the viewing room to watch the show. For those of you driving, the center offers plenty of free parking in its lot. If you still can't find us, go ahead and call or send me a text message at[masked] (after 6 PM on the day of only, please; there are several avenues to contact me every other day of the month).

I charge an event fee of $5 ($7 if there are fewer than 15 people in attendance) to help recoup costs for room rental, A/V equipment, DVDs and a personalized, preprinted name badge. If your guest(s) also would like a personalized preprinted name badge, please put his/her name into the comments section of your RSVP.

    There is a Catholic Mass in the 5th Province. Come on in, just be quiet when you do. We're in our usual place.

    I really hope I can go...is anyone coming from Rogers Park?

      I'm sure that can be arranged. Worst case scenario, you're about an hour away by bus, and someone can easily give you a lift home.
