Happy Holidays Hilarity At The Hartman's!

To help everyone ring in the holiday season, we are bringing you one heck of a lineup of festive entertainment! First up is the freakishly amazing MST3k episode of Santa Claus! This happens to be one of our favorite holiday movies as it features Santa trying to outwit the Devil to ensure a little girl named Lupita gets her dolly! 

What could we have for you next in the programming lineup that could possible top that holiday experience? Why The Star Wars Holiday Special of course! Thanks to Rifftrax for jumping into the fray, this incredibly awful piece of programming is actually made funny by Mike, Kevin and Bill who do their best to crack some jokes without going insane themselves. I'd explain more about the "plot" but the less said the better.

Now for some particulars of the event. We'll have soda and snacks available so bring whatever else you want to enjoy or possibly share, but we do have to address a question someone mentioned to us after the last meetup, and that is bringing alcohol to the event. We normally don't mind, but after looking into it and the legal parameters, we're going to have to strongly discourage that practice. It turns out that even if we're not the ones supplying it, just providing the venue for consumption, it actually opens us up to a large number of legal liability concerns! Say someone that had a drink at our apartment during this group gets into an auto accident and hits someone, we could be held liable for letting that person drive home by the other party - same thing happens with bars that's why they take keys and call cabs - we want everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves without having to sign legal documentation! Sorry if this puts a bummer on the holiday cheer for some folks, we don't want to disappoint, but we figure with the lineup of entertainment we have on deck, everyone should have a great time! We look forward to seeing everyone! Be good out there!


Are the holidays giving you stress? Is finding that perfect gift becoming a pain in the butt? Does the sound of spending untold numbers of hours with family make you breakout in fever sweats? Well we may have something to help! As an extra incentive to get to the show early - we will be handing out 5 MST3k stress balls to the first people to show up! Now, with that, if you're bringing someone with you - it's only one per group, sorry to say. We want to give away as many as we can to as many attendees as we can.

    Anyone have any favorite holiday sweet treats? I have not baked for a few months, I think my mixer is getting lonely.

      Any particularly favorite holiday flavors? Or dislikes to say peppermint, ginger bread, or eggnog?

      I think most everyone likes peppermint and gingerbread. Eggnog might be a little too wild for some though I think. _Mary
