As usual I'll have one free ticket for first RSVP that shows up. Assuming I remember where I put the ticket. ;-)

Times are tough for Lucius, an architect in ancient Rome. During a trip to one of Rome’s legendary bathhouses, Lucius is magically transported to another bathhouse — in modern Japan! For Lucius, things in the land of Super Toilets and onsens are indeed strange, to say the least. But that doesn’t stop Lucius from stealing some modern ideas and bringing them back to Rome, where fortune awaits. Sight gags are aplenty in this time-travel comedy, as are sights of superstar Hiroshi Abe (STILL WALKING) transcending race, time, culture, and language with his beautiful hunky self.

    Terrific comedy. The real scene stealers were the modern-day Japanese bath fixtures.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
