Potluck and Movie Night: May I Be Frank

  • This location is shown only to members

Please join us for a vegan potluck dinner, then we'll watch a vegetarian documentary in our host's home theater. Bring a vegan dish to share and a list of ingredients to help those with food sensitivities. Seating is limited, so please adjust your RSVP if you can't make it, as we don't want any empty seats. Check others' RSVP comments to see what they are bringing and comment about what you are bringing when you RSVP, so we don't duplicate dishes.

From imdb:

May I Be Frank (2010)

Frank Ferrante is 54, weighs 290lbs., had a lifetime of drug & alcohol abuse and as a result contracted Hepatitis-C. He's on multiple medications including anti-depressants, undergoing chemo and drinks 10 espressos a day to stay awake. One day Frank stumbles into Cafe Gratitude, a Raw food café in San Francisco, and meets Ryland, the café's manager. Ryland asks Frank, what is one thing you'd like to do before you die? Frank answers 'I want to fall in love one more time, but with a body like this, no one will love me, because i don't love myself.' Watch as Ryland, his brother Cary and best friend Conor, help Frank take on his weight, health, relationships and loving himself in just 42 days.

    Just wanted to say thank you. I really enjoyed meeting everyone and seeing the film. The food was delicious too! I wanted you to know there are a bunch of clips on YouTube on the topic of the 'May I Be Frank' video. I am watching them now. All very interesting.

    Ok...we had to make the cupcakes this afternoon as that was our only option -- they turned out tasting like baking soda (first time making vegan cupcakes). At the last minute we have no other ideas and don't want to be rude. We apologize.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
