Peace, Pies, & Prophets "I'd Like to Buy an Enemy" -performance by Ted & Company

Don't know much about this, but it seems like it might be fun so am posting this here to gauge interest. Note - it definitely has a Christian tinge, so be aware of that. If anyone knows anything about this group or the organizations that it supports that is not positive, please let me know. Here is the description. I'm seeking a minimum of 4 RSVP's for the meetup to occur. Says $12 donation. Possible dinner beforehand if there is interest.
--------------------
A hilarious and poignant satire that explores peace, justice, and the American way…

Starring Ted Swartz and Tim Ruebke, this thought-provoking show allows us to laugh at ourselves,while engaging us to think about the place of the US in the world, to confront the fear that is such a large part of our culture, and to consider how we can work for peace and justice in this country and in the world.

    Dinner sounds like a good idea, but 5:30 is too early.

      Great! - but you might not have time to eat since the performance is at 7pm. Still, stop by for a drink, or if you can come at 6, you would have more time. People also have the option of eating afterwards.

    It looks like we're definitely meeting at Z Cafe for dinner which is great; I might be a bit late, but will get there as soon as I can. So see you there around 5:45. Looking forward to it.

    Rosa - I was planning on paying at the door. Looks like you can register here if you want - says it free - so its really by donation: http://peacepiesprophets.eventbrite.com/# Any others for dinner? We only have 3 people who said yes - myself, Cindy and Ethan. Let me know.

      Think I'm going to have to bail. It's been a long (but good) week...

      No problem Julie - if you change your mind - we'll be at Z Cafe between 5:30 and 5:45.

    I'm still planning on going and dinner before sounds great.

    It starts at 7 pm, and since its so close, maybe 5:45 might be early enough? Its still over 2.5 weeks away - so thought I would check in with people closer to the date - like 5 days before or so - to see who might want to eat - then we should make a reservation. People tend to drop out closer to the date, and some may add, so its hard to make a reservation this early. But I'm definitely on for dinner. Looks like we will make happy hour too!

      This sounds good to me; these days it's hard to plan too far in advance.

      January 14, 2013

    Sounds good to me, but we probably need to meet at least by 5:30 if it starts at 6:45; do you think we need reservations?

    Z Cafe is very close by with pretty good fare. Went there to celebrate with other MoveOn folks after helping the Democrats take over Congress in 06. Nice place for us and would like to join the group there for dinner if others are up for that, although I'd be arriving around 6.
