LOLCats mean business, and they're done asking for that cheezburger!

Ann Margaret stars as a juvenile delinquent in her mid-twenties, who escapes captivity in a nightie and sneaks into a random house belonging to John Forsythe, a naive, bland man running for the US Senate, and... well, I've got to be honest, watching this one in the context of current politics makes me pine for heads of state like John Forsythe's character here. He finds Ann in his house and rather than calling the cops, buys her clothes and lets her walk all over him, inviting a thug and a philosopher over to his house, and for some reason, they hold him hostage and take him over the border to Mexico. It's... well, don't think about it too hard. In the words of one of the world's greatest thinkers, Leonardo da Vinci, "What? It's a bad movie. So don't worry about it."

Don't miss Kitten With a Whip, or you'll be dyin' in a rush!

We meet at the Irish American Heritage Center in the Fifth Province, the center’s pub located on the first floor (look for a group of folks wearing name badges). Sometimes there will be an event charging money at the door; that's not us. You're welcome to walk past them and come find us. The evening starts at 6:00p for dinner/drinks in the pub (menu consists of burgers, fish & chips, sandwiches, and Irish fare such as Sheperd's Pie). At around 7:30p, we go to the viewing room to watch the show. For those of you driving, the center offers plenty of free parking in its lot. If you still can't find us, go ahead and call or send me a text message at 815-535-3226 (after 6 PM on the day of only, please; there are several avenues to contact me every other day of the month).

I charge an event fee of $5 ($7 if there are fewer than 15 people in attendance) to help recoup costs for room rental, A/V equipment, DVDs and a personalized, preprinted name badge. If your guest(s) also would like a personalized preprinted name badge, please put his/her name into the comments section of your RSVP.
