Dinner & Death Movie: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

Dinner & Death is Nerd HQ's weekly "family" gathering.  This week we will be having an "Easter" dinner.  Come join us for dinner and The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai.  Having dinner with your nerdy/geeky friends is always great fun and a nice way to cap off the weekend.  John has something extra special planned for this night since it will be Easter, so RSVPing to this event EARLY or at all is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.  Numbers really matter for the special dinner.  If it's at all possible, please RSVP yes (or no for the regulars) before Friday.  Thanks!

• FYI: Fan Expo closes at 5pm this date, if you still wanted to come for Dinner, we eat around 6:00pm, so plenty of time to arrive after the con. Just add a note to the event that you will be arriving after Fan Expo so we know to save a spot at the table for you.

The earlier you RSVP for this event, the easier it is for organizers to plan the delicious meal you will be enjoying & if you are having dinner, it is VERY helpful for organizers if you RSVP for this event sooner rather than later.

We have lots of people who only come for dinner or only for death, its not necessary to participate in both parts of Dinner & Death, come just for dinner or just for the movie. There is no cost for the event itself, however there is a cost for the dinner (between $12.50-$15), and any liquids you may wish to have.

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension ~ This 1984 cult classic film drifts between satire and improbable sci-fi.  Neurosurgeon/Rock Star/Superhero Buckaroo has perfected the oscillation overthruster, which allows him to travel through solid matter by using the eighth dimension. The Red Lectroids from Planet 10 are after this device for their own evil ends, and it's up to Buckaroo and his band and crime-fighting team The Hong Kong Cavaliers to stop them.

Time Schedule: 

• 5:15 - 6:00pmish - Arrivals

• 6:00pmISH - "Family" Dinner

• 7:00pmISH - Movie Time!


• • If you are having dinner, it is VERY helpful for organizers if you please RSVP for this event. 

NOTES: PLEASE let Nerd HQ know, as a note in your RSVP, if you have any dietary restrictions, such as gluten or vegetarianism, as this will help us with the planning of your dinner.

    Hey all, that was great. I'd love to come more often, though I'm very much not a horror person. I'd love to see you do more movies like this or Sharknado. Anyway, thank you for a great evening; easily the best part of Easter weekend.

      Also coming by bus from Fan Expo. Crossing my fingers there will be some dairy-free/and or meat-free (at least not pork/beef) options. Just my two cents, menu-wise. :-)
