NOT ABOUT HEROS a play by Stephen MacDonald, FREE for veterans! (at the Art Box)
My favorite place for theatre, (the Off-Leash Area Art Box) is hosting the well-known play: "NOT ABOUT HEROS" by Stephen MacDonald. Come watch an examination of poetry, war, death, courage, and art, by Hero Now Theatre in honor of Veteran's Day, 11/11/2018 (runs Thursday Nov 08,[masked]:00 PM thru Saturday Nov 17,[masked]:00 PM cost: Free - $20.00) ....................................................... From the press announcement ... To mark the 100th anniversary of the first World War Armistice, Hero Now Theatre presents "Not About Heroes," by Stephen MacDonald. It is a play about war, truth, and two artists' evolving self-awareness. Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen were officers in the British army and have been called the best British poets of the "Great War." The play, based on letters and memoirs, imagines their meeting in a psychiatric hospital where one was admitted for shell shock, the other for speaking out against prolonging the conflict. As the older Sassoon nurtures Owen in his early years as a poet, their relationship deepens. Eventually, though, Owen decides he must return to combat. The reason will surprise. Discussions with veteran-artists follow each show. U.S. military veterans are admitted free, but tickets are required, as there is limited seating. ............................ From wikipedia... Not About Heroes is a drama by Stephen MacDonaldabout the real-life relationship between the poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, first performed in 1982 at the Edinburgh Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. The play has only two characters: Owen and Sassoon. The story of their friendship is told in a series of flashbacks, narrated by Sassoon who survived World War I (in which Owen was killed). Most of the scenes take place during their time as fellow-patients at Craiglockhart War Hospital near Edinburgh in 1917. The title is a quotation from the preface Wilfred Owen wrote in preparation for the publication of his collected poems: "This book is not about heroes. English poetry is not yet fit to speak of them. Nor is it about deeds, or lands, nor anything about glory, honour, might, majesty, dominion, or power, except War. Above all I am not concerned with Poetry. My subject is War, and the pity of War. The Poetry is in the pity." ......................................... From the meetup host ... In honor of Veterans Day, why not join in this examination of what the national holiday is all about?

What we're about

What is the Twin Cities Hot & Spicy Food Lovers Group?

Our group is open to all lovers of hot & spicy food who wish to indulge in the best spicy cuisine in the Twin Cities area!

We're a friendly, laid-back group but we are passionate about great spicy food -- our only requirement is, "enjoy yourself"!

Can I host my own Hot & Spicy event?

Yes! Anyone can host an event!

Have you found a great local restaurant willing to take hold back nothing in terms of spicy goodness? Let's check it out!

Please don't hesitate to go to the group page and schedule a new meetup event for your favorite spicy hangouts.

Should I be aware of any rules?

It helps a TON in planning to get an accurate head count of those who will be attending each event. Therefore, our only rule is that if you RSVP 'Yes' and can't make it to the event, please update your RSVP to 'No'.

NOTICE- due to the excessive amount of no-shows recently, the Twin Cities Hot and Spicy Food Lovers meetup group will begin enforcement of a 'three strikes, you're out' policy.
People who RSVP 'Yes' and do not attend the restaurant meetup will be noted, and messaged each time until they have dropped out 3 times. They will have their membership terminated subsequently. Noon on the meetup day will be the final cutoff to switch to a 'No' RSVP.
This policy is to insure our reservations do not inconvenience the restaurant due to a turnout that is less than was confirmed beforehand. It will also allow anyone who really desires to go with the group to be able to attend. Most restaurants can handle large groups, the limit will be increased as much as possible.
Hopefully your RSVP'S will reflect an intent to join the group and enjoy another meal together. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
