Pre-Film "End of the Work Week" HAPPY HOUR at the acclaimed NAPA VALLEY GRILLE

Classic movies--especially 1930's screwball comedies are always better on a full stomach!For those who can make it to Westwood before the La Cava screwball comedies, we will meet in the bar of the NAPA VALLEY GRILLE restaurant for its acclaimed gourmet bargain happy hour--just diagonally across the street from the Billy Wilder Theatre at the Hammer Museum for conversation, drinks and appetizers for sustenance! However, it is highly recommended that IF you park at the Hammer's underground parking structure BEFORE 6PM that you double check with the attendant to ensure you will not be charged some astronomical parking fee for arriving at that hour and not leaving the lot until after one or two movies. Otherwise, you may want to instead park at the two other nearby lots where there is affordable FLAT RATE PARKING within 2-3 blocks away ANYTIME AFTER 5PM (see weblink below for more info).

    Jon and Group:

    I'll be attending the films but I won't be making dinner beforehand. I have to work :-(

    I'll see you all at the films and I'll look for the unmistakable Jono hat, ala Hedda Hopper :-).

    I'll stop by to meet up but I think my dietary need will be better served if I eat first at home. So I'll arrive on the late side to the restaurant.
