Reel and Meal: World War Z, Saturday, June 22, 12:30 p.m., Mpls

Two words: "zombie apocalypse." If you're not already as anxious to see World War Z as the walking dead at a brain buffet, you should know that the summer's next blockbuster owes as much to Contagion as it does to 28 Days Later. That's right: a thinking person's zombie flick. Or as IMDB describes it:

"United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself."

Join us at the St. Anthony Main Theater on the Minneapolis riverfront this Saturday for an apocalyptic good time. The movie starts at 1:05 p.m., so we'll congregate in the lobby starting at 12:30 and take our seats by 12:50. You can usually find free street parking if you're willing to walk a couple of blocks--look for meters that aren't enforced on weekends. Here's the website:

Afterwards those of us who have worked up an appetite will head over to Rusty Taco (522 East Hennepin Avenue), just a short shamble away. We should be there by 3:15 or so. The menu looks inviting despite the absence of sweetbreads:

Hope we can lure you there!

    Good edge-of-your-seat, fast paced movie. It seemed everyone liked it, whether they were zombie fans or not. Fun group, too--hope to see you all again soon.

    St. Anthony Main seems to have power--restaurants are open and the streetlights are working. There's some kind of event going on this morning, so you may have to park in the ramp for $3 if you don't get there very early. Looking forward to seeing you all at the theater!

    I'm not sure if the theatre would be answering before noon. I'll drive by the neighborhood to check the power situation (my power is out, and I live north of Minneapolis). I'll try to update again. If I don't, I will be at the theater at 12:30. Their number is[masked]

    Does anyone know if the power is on at the theater? The phone there keeps ringing when I call.
