Dinner & Science Fiction Movie Discussion

Here's the Scoop. I've been running a discussion group for years which has an optional pre discussion dinner, so why not mention it here? We alternate between the Park West Diner in Little Falls and Jose Tejas Mexican Restuarant in Fairfield. Both are on Route 46 West. After dinner we head to The Fine Grind Coffee Bar in Little Falls (a little to the south of the Willowbrook Mall). We discuss various themes in science fiction / fantasy / horror movies, books, TV, comic books, anime, etc. Here's a link to past / upcoming discussion topics:

There's usually 4 - 6 of us dining and 6 - 8 discussing. Want to join us? This month's topic is Psychic Powers (mind control, telepathy, telekinesis). This is a discussion of movies, books, and more in which these powers play a part. If you wear a tin foil hat to stop the government from reading your mind, this is not the group you want.

    There were 5 for dinner and 6 for the discussion. Rain kept some people away. Four attendees were from this Meetup. We met Alan for the first time. He was fun and fit right in. Among the movies discussed that fit the Psychic Powers Topic were CARRIE, STAR WARS, THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS, X-MEN, POLTERGEIST and PUSH. Lots of other flicks, plus books, TV, anime and comic books were discussed.

    I'm sorry if I offended you with my question about the general ages and backgrounds of members. It's just that I'm 65 and would probably feel out of place with a group of teenagers, even though they may have interesting things to say. Similarly, I would probably be out of my depth among a group of neuroscientists or nuclear physicists although I'm sure I would find their perspectives fascinating. And as far as tin foil hats, how do YOU protect yourself from alien thought rays?

    The group is mostly Boomers. I do not know and do not care about what degrees our members have.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
