Dinner and a Movie- Great Gatsby

What do you think, ladies? Will The Great Gatsby live up to it's name?

Did you all have to read it in high school?

I'm looking forward to seeing it depicted on the big screen:

"Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) is an aspiring stock broker in 1920s New York. Living on the outskirts of town, he re-establishes a friendship with his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan), and her husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). Nick also befriends golfer Jordan Baker (Elizabeth Debicki), who is pressured by Daisy to begin a romance with Nick. Jordan informs Nick of his neighbor, the rich and enigmatic Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) who is famed for staging large, flamboyant parties for the region's elite. While getting to know Gatsby, Nick learns of a love affair between Gatsby and Daisy that was broken by the First World War. Now, Nick is caught in the crossroads of a staged game aimed at recreating the past. Soon it begins to show that greatness can sometimes be a front to one's true identity."

    We did have a small group, but it was a very nice night, good food and lively conversation.

    Hi ladies! I totally forgot that I had this on the calendar- as I have bronchitis. I've even had to miss work. :( I definitely can't go and cough through dinner and the movie. Boo. Does anyone want to be the "point" person for this event? (i.e. meeting in the lobby and smiling and single women walking in?)

      Hi Deanna, I would be glad to be point person, even though I've only been to 2 meetups. I guess I should just stand inside of Cheddar's to meet ladies coming in. With all the ones who have cancelled, hopefully some show up.

    Sounds great, I've been hoping to see that movie, it looks really good. Should we stop and buy our tickets before going to Cheddar's?
