It's a Wonderful Life
Perfect Movie for the good old Christmas spirit at the historical Tampa Theater. We will Meet in the lounge, where we can Cheer to the season with a drink. Grab some popcorn, then take a seat and enjoy the show. Watch It’s a Wonderful Life every year, and you’ll see a different message in it every time. On its face, it’s a heart warmer about treating your fellow man with fairness and love, knowing that they will stand behind you when you need them. But it’s also a political movie about the destructive influence of consolidated wealth (Lionel Barrymore’s Mr. Potter is one of cinema’s great villains); it’s nearly a tragic portrait of a talented dreamer who sacrifices himself completely for others and is almost destroyed by his own frustration; and in the tradition of Dicken’s three Christmas ghosts, it’s a look at the chilling consequences of all the paths not taken in a life. Solemn and sweet but uncompromising, the movie refuses to let George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart) off easy. And the key is the title — it may not be the life he wanted, it may not be the life he deserved, it may not always be easy to admit, but it is, truly, a wonderful life. Movie starts at 7:30

What we're about

This group is for 55+ single men and women who would like to meet other singles in different settings "Beyond Happy Hour." This is a social group focused on having an even number of men and women members (not a womans group). Many meetups seem to be mostly women and I would like to even it out. So ladies. invite your guy friends. We will also focus on expanding interests, making new friends and trying new things. This is NOT a dating group, however I have no problem if a spark happens. Activities may include picnics, beach activities, day trips, game nights, concerts, cooking experiences, dancing, theater and much more. Join us if you are active and like fun adventures!

This intended to be a safe environment, being respectful and understanding boundaries.

Events will usually be limited to about 20 guests and will hopefully include a balance of genders. Our goal is to create an atmosphere that encourages friendships among men and women seeking to discover new interests that go "Beyond Happy Hours." And sometimes we will even do Happy Hours. Suggestions for events are welcome so feel free to tell me about your ideas.
