Once again we will get together, for more Fun, Food, and Frivolity with fellow film fans! We're now (Aug. 8) completely SOLD OUT, but there is a Waiting List, so sign up, and we'll let you know if anyone cancels. Thanks!!
NOTE: When any cancelations occur, we will proceed in order through the Waiting List (earliest to most recent). Please, do NOT JUMP THE QUEUE! Eligible members on the Wait List will be contacted in order. Anyone jumping the queue, will be returned to the Wait List, and as a result, will move down in the order. Thanks.
Yes, it's time for our:
Summer Movie Meetup Party!!
We'll gather at a private club house, in Los Altos (the exact address, and a map, will be emailed to everyone who RSVPs "yes," a week prior to the event), on Saturday, September 7, for: Socializing, conversation, food and games -- so RSVP, right now! There'll be lots of food and drink to share (see "The Pot-Luck" below), plus valuable prizes, trivia games, and... the return of the diabolical, "Connect the Clues" game!!!
Important: We are inviting members from both SF Bay Area Classic Films and Palo Alto Independent Films to attend, and we need to limit the number to a *total* of thirty-five (35) people. So, the only way to ensure your spot, is to RSVP early!!!
Admission price (payable when you RSVP) is just $10.00, per person (you don't need a PayPal account to pay; a credit or debit card will work just fine). We won't be taking payments at the door, so please pay when you sign up! To help us prepare, we will be closing RSVPs a week prior to the event, on Saturday, August 31, so don't procrastinate, and risk missing out!
We will provide drinks and condiments (plus all cups, plates, napkins, utensils, ice, etc.), but the food we'll do potluck style! Bring a dish from one of the categories below, sufficient to share with three (3) other people, and note the category in your RSVP comment, so we can balance the menu, if needed. Here are the categories:
• Entreé (meat or vegetarian; please indicate)
• Vegetables/Side dish
Please bring any serving utensils you may require. (Gas grills, a full range/oven, and fridge/freezer will be available, if needed. Please provide your own equipment (pot holders, spatulas, roasting pans, etc.))
So, that's it! As always we'll have lots of food and fun with some of the most enthusiastic film fans in the Bay Area! What's not to like? Don't miss out: RSVP NOW!!!
We'll See You on Saturday, September 7!!!
P.S.: As a special treat, hang out after the party (but help clean up first -- the sooner we're done, the quicker the fun) and enjoy a light, summer movie: Priceless (Hors de prix) (2006), with Audrey Tautou and Gad Elmaleh (in French with English subtitles). Tautou plays a gold digger plying the five star hotels of the Côte d'Azur, hunting for a sugar daddy. Unfortunately for her, she mistakes a lowly barman for a prize catch, but when the truth comes out, they find they each have something to teach the other... A charming romantic comedy with wonderful performances from the two leads. (Elmaleh, a comic star in France, played the detective assigned to follow Owen Wilson, in Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.)
