Dinner and a Movie...

I recently became involved with a FaceBook group called SEAL of Honor.

SEAL of Honor is a book written about a Medal of Honor winner the late LT Michael P. Murphy. He was the leader of a 4 man Navy SEAL team in 2005 that came under attack. They were badly outnumbered and a helicopter was sent to rescue them. That helicopter was shot down and all 15 SEALS on-board died and well as three of the 4 SEALS on the ground.

SEAL of Honor was written to honor these men. It was made into a movie called Murph the Protector which is up for some Oscars this year in documentary categories. I recently build a new website for the author of the book who is also a producer of the film, www.SEALofHonor.com.

Only one SEAL survived that day, Marcus Luttrell. He wrote a book called Lone Survivor. Hollywood has made into a movie starring

Mark Wahlberg as SO2 Marcus Luttrell
Taylor Kitsch as LT Michael P. Murphy
Eric Bana as LCDR Erik S. Kristensen
Emile Hirsch as SO2 Danny Dietz
Ben Foster as SO2 Matthew Axelson

It opens January 9th. I recently discovered one of the best kept secrets in the Wayne, NJ area. A restaurant called Burger Deluxe. This place is really good. Much more then burgers but they do them really well. Bison Burgers too if you want them. The Hanger Steak is to die for. It's a BYO.

So I want to do Dinner and a Movie. 6:15 or so and Burger Deluxe and then the 8pm showing of Lone Survivor at the Wayne AMC.

Even if you don't want to go please consider seeing the film

    I believe the movie idea is great! I tend to be careful what I eat maybe a spinach salad with that burger.

    What a great idea and a nice way to get people together and show respect for our troops. I may run a bit late for dinner but count me in as long as the weather is decent.
