    I only found 3 of the 25 people who RSVPd Yes. The rest of you will be marked as "no-shows" and will eventually be removed from the group if it happens again.

    Good news! Movie is over by 6:15 so we will go to cafe express.

    Cafe express closes at 7, so we can't go there after the movie. If you want to go somewhere, meet in the lobby after the movie and make plans.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
