Potluck Double Feature: Dogma & Idiocracy, Sunday, May 11, 6 p.m., Plymouth

Celebrate the coming of Spring with a Minnesota Atheists potluck dinner and movie double feature! Bring your favorite appetizer, entree, side dish, or dessert to the West Medicine Lake Community Club. If the weather's with us we'll picnic on the outdoor pavilion and patio; if not, we'll dine in the ballroom. There's a kitchen with a microwave, stove, oven, and fridge, so you'll be able to heat things up or keep them cool. Please bring your own serving utensils, but paper and plasticware will be provided for food and beverages.

Running the venue isn't free, so we're asking for a $5 donation. That will also cover the ware mentioned above and popcorn to munch on during the movies. Speaking of which:

Our first feature is Dogma (1999), starting at 7 p.m.

Written and directed by Kevin Smith (Clerks) and starring Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Janeane Garofalo, George Carlin, Chris Rock and many others, this irreverent comedy's one-line synopsis reads as follows: "An abortion clinic worker with a special heritage is called upon the save humanity from being negated by two renegade angels trying to exploit a loophole to re-enter heaven."

Next up is Idiocracy (2006), showing at 9 p.m.

Mike Judge (Beavis and Butthead, Office Space, King of the Hill) wrote and directed this futuristic comedy starring Luke Wilson as Private Joe Bauers, an "average American" selected by the Pentagon as the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he wakes up 500 years later to find a society so incredibly stupid that he's the most intelligent person alive.

If you've already seen one or both of these hilarious movies, you'll want to see them again. If not, we won't tell anyone–come and enjoy them for the first time!

Update:  The venue will have a cash bar with happy hour priced beer and cocktails. No ATM/CC. Cash only!

    Thanks for putting this on. Had a good time. Got called and had to leave near the end of Dogma but I had a nice time there. Look forward to another one.

    A real small gathering (about 8?), but fun! Food was good and Dogma was a hoot, as always, but I had to leave afterward because 5:00am comes so Damn early. Hope we can do this again soon, when more people can come. :-)

      Thanks for coming! Nobody made it through Idiocracy, so don't feel bad. Lol! The next time is a Saturday (June 14th), so hopefully more people can make that.

    Not going to make it after all; was involved in a minor fender-bender en route.

    Boy, I really want to attend, but I needed to prioritize. A friend got a double mastectomy this week and I thought I should bring dinner to her family. Thank you for understanding. I spend the day cooking and am leaving in just a few minutes.

    Note: Due to construction along the lake shore, there is a small detour for anyone who would normally turn onto W. Medicine Lk Drive from 55.
    You can either follow the posted detour signs (and back-tract to 18th), OR just turn onto 18th Ave. from 55, then turn onto Forestview (there is a blue Club sign, and orange Bike detour sign). The venue is hidden in a neighborhood....all sneaky like!

    I should be back from fishing in Wisconsin by then. The Community Club is only about 2 miles from where I live.

    There's a chance of some pick-up kickball, or board games earlier...if anyone's interested.
