VALENTINE'S Champagne & Chocolate Party PILLOW TALK 1959/DOWN WITH LOVE 2003

  • Feb 10, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • Jono's TALAVERA HOUSE

Note: This viewing party was rescheduled to SUNDAY 2/10 due to an unanticipated business trip that Jono has to take on the week of 2/11). You are cordially invited to a champagne (or sparkling fruit juice) and chocolate dessert viewing party of a classic Doris Day/Rock Hudson romantic comedy PILLOW TALK following by an ice cream break--then, for those who have the stamina--a chance to see an wonderfully inspired parody of that type of movie called DOWN WITH LOVE. Note: Due to Jono's small living room size, this gathering is being limited to 15 members--so RSVP soon if you can!

I had originally contemplated showing a great romantic drama by David Lean called BRIEF ENCOUNTER 1946, but it is sort of a "weepie" and I think for a home viewing party, especially on Valentine's, that light is better than heavy! plus PILLOW TALK and DOWN WITH LOVE are both naturally very funny films.

DOWN WITH LOVE is almost like a recreation of one of Doris Day and Rock Hudson's three romantic comedies from the 50's and 60's and even the late actor Tony Randall, who appeared in those original three films, makes a cameo appearance in DOWN WITH LOVE.

To keep the Sunday eve simple, we will have light sliced deli sandwiches for those who might might want something other than sweet to nosh on, but the main course of the evening will be dessert, champagne or sparking juice. So please bring a dessert to share and whatever beverage you wish to drink (cherry coke or?). And perhaps a couple of you can bring sparkling wine to share (preferably pink for Valentine's!) Jono already has 2 chilled bottles of sparkling wine.

Remember Jono loves you all--so this gathering is in appreciation for your participation in our group.

Parking: Street parking should be available within a block's walking distance.
