MOVIE & Drinks (The Great Gatsby)

Tuesday's are CHEAP NIGHT @ the movies so let's get together with new friends, grab a drink & then catch this NEW RENDITION of a CLASSIC NOVEL!!! This was my favorite book in high school so I'm extremely excited for this film!

***PLEASE ARRIVE AT THE PUB ATLEAST 30 MINUTES BEFORE (6:15pm) THE MOVIE STARTS. Sarah's cell # will be sent out the night before so you can find us at the pub! We are a large group & cheap night tickets sell out so we MUST be there early to get tickets & seats together!!!

Cost: $12/person (Please bring EXACT change!) - Includes: Meetup Fee + Movie + Taxes (any food/drinks/snacks are a la carte)

Itinerary: 5-6:15m Meet at Flatiron & Firkin for a drink, chat & get to know each other

---> 6:15pm Head to Rainbow Cinema (Movie starts at 6:45pm) and watch The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio[Inception, Gangs of New York, Titanic], Tobey Maguire[Spiderman trilogy, Pleasentville], Carey Mulligan[Pride & Prejudice, Public Enemies, Dr. Who] & Isla Fisher[Wedding Crashers, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Wedding Daze]!

---> 8:30-9pm If people want we can go back to the Firkin or to one of other pubs in the area & have post movie drinks/dinner.

Synopsis: "The Great Gatsby" follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles. -- (C) WB

    Hi, I would like to RSVP for this but there is a SLIGHT chance I won't make it but I will do my BEST. Would that be okay?

      Thanks Sarah, yes of course I understand perfectly and I agree! It it totally fair. I am pretty certain at this point that I WILL attend. Just so you understand my situation, I was at the dentist last night to have 2 wisdom teeth removed so I was on Tylenol 3 all this time and I wasn't sure if I would be up to this event---needless to say, I wouldn't want to show up all "loopy" and dilirious! Doesn't make a very good first impression, right? ;) However, the last time I took a Tylenol 3 was this morning and I haven't had to take another one since because I haven't been feeling anymore pain so I think at this time I am well enough that I can attend this and still act relatively decent. lol Anyway, just wanted to let you know what my situation seemed so complicated! So, unless I get abducted by aliens on my way there or receive an unexpected marriage proposal :p, I will see you tonight. Thanks for accommodating me!
