***We've had some issues with people signing up for events and then not showing up. As you can see, we have a large waiting list for this event. If you can not make it, please change your RSVP as soon as possible. Other Meetups actually keep "attendance" and will remove members who are chronic no-shows. We don't want to parent individuals, but it's not fair to members who are on the waiting list. (We did put a limit due to the size of the party room at Davanni's.) Thank you!!***
In the spirit of the endless election season, this month's Reel and Meal is Lincoln. Oscar buzz for Best Picture, Actor in a Leading Role Daniel Day-Lewis, Actor in a Supporting Role Tommy Lee Jones, Actress in a Supporting Role Sally Field and Best Director Steven Spielberg. David Strathairn, James Spader, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Hal Holbrook also star in this must see movie. We'll head to Davanni's after the movie for a great meal and lively discussion.
Lincoln is a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President's tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come. As the Civil War continues to rage, America's president struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield and as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves.
After the show, we'll head to Davanni's from 4:00-7:00 for food and discussion!
Hope to see you there!
