    Good service & food (and really big portions at the Versailles Diner). Discussion was good at the Fine Grind. To name only a few of the movies (and we talked about lots of other media in addition to films) we discussed: 2001, Village of the Damned, E.T., A.I., Pippi Longstocking, Aliens, Harry Potter, and Wizard of Oz.

      Hi, Amy. This is just a dinner-and-discussion group which talks about movies and other things. Short version: No movie events had been held at this group in a long time. I decided to start posting a dinner-and-discussion group I had been running for years which is seperate from Meetup. So you are welcome to join us for dinner & discussion. On a related note: I have been showing a movie once a month at my house for years. I will be moving that event to a library in early 2014. Once that is done, I will start posting it here. Best wishes. Phil.

      Hi, Gail. My bad. Unfortunately, it's not letting me change it right now. I'll try again in a couple of days, but it is on SEPTEMBER 17, 2013. Sorry.

      When updating this event from August to September, Phil forgot to change August in the narrative to September. If you want to see this for yourself go to sfabc.org.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
