Hmmmm...let's shake things up once in awhile, right? That's a GOOD thing!
As it turns out, based on 3 regularly-attending members' opinions, we are all out of decent NEW movies to see this next week at Marcus Gurnee Cinema. This can happen, rarely and occasionally, when we continually hit the new flicks each and every week on Tuesday. The first time it happened a month or so ago, we still had a big group of 25 or so just meet for pizza night but no movie. NOW, however, thanks to Shelley, we have a great Plan B for when and if this rarely happens.
Thanks (?) ;-) to Shelley's idea, I invested in a pretty fabulous 55" flat-screen SMART TV, and will rent us a popular flick to watch together at my home! Yes, we will still bring in tons of our favorite fresh, hot pizzas from Fogcutter, PLUS you can bring your own beverages or munchies. I will provide the popcorn. Cozy down on all my couches and seating in The Martini Lounge, let's build a fire in the fireplace, and enjoy a HOME movie night just for tonight! If the weather is on our side, we'll socialize outside on my beautiful new brick patio for dining, with seating for 16+.
We'll be ordering Garbage Pizzas, Veggie Pizzas and/or Sausage and Pepperoni Pizzas with Cheese...and/or maybe one of MY favorites: BBQ Chicken with Onions, Mushrooms and Tomatoes! (If you suggest another, I'll certainly try to include that as well!)
The movie I'll be renting (based on requests, even from those who want to see it again) is "We're The Millers," starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts, Nick Offerman and many more! It's a hilarious adult comedy at its best! Check out rave reviews here: http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20483133_20687836,00.html .
The cost, including loads of fresh Fogcutter's pizza, popcorn, the movie, and our Event Fee is just $10, all-inclusive. (Remember, this is BYOB, another cost-saver.) Based on our typical $5 movie cost alone, plus food, drinks, tax and gratuity, plus our $2 Event Fee, this promises to be a great (and super cheap) night. I'm a bit nervous about trying this out in my home, but also psyched to share it with Single Friends!
Please DO RSVP first, and let's cozy down in The Martini Lounge for a very special pizza-and-movie night together!
