16 July Friday Movie Night

Been a while since we saw a movie together.

19:00 BBQ
21:00 the sun goes down

Not without My Handbag  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Not_Without_My_Handbag

Spy  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spy_(2015_film)

A couple of animated films and an action comedy film.

Come grill something beforehand if you’d like.  Certainly arrive before sunset to get a spot on the grass for the movies.

What to bring?
Seating:  Camping chair, blanket, or similar.  I have many to share.
Food:  There is a grill available.  I’ll make popcorn.  If you have any special kitchen needs, send Jimmy a message or ask here.
Bevs:  If you can sip it, it’s good.  Share if you’d like.
Friends:  Cool friends are great.
Pets:  My cat has total dominion over the yard and is restricted by a 28 foot retractable leash.  Fucking with the cat is a no-no.  That is the most important pet rule.
Money:  The show is free but you will likely want to donate to the Me (and I’m ok as I’m employed).  We did have a new bulb fundraiser once.
Love:  Bring it!  Bring it all!

Remember, there is a 20f difference between day temps and night temps.  Wear long pants, bring a jacket, do the layers.  I do have several blankets but plan accordingly.

Definitely dress for chilly weather for when that sun goes down tomorrow evening.

If you plan to come for the pre-bq, let me know so I can plan accordingly.  If you want to roast weenies, maybe ask here for someone to bring buns.  “We’re all in this together, kid.”  Ask me all the questions.

Things I hope to cook:  a few sausages, a few ribs, a few chicken thighs, country scones, and a rice dish.  And popcorn.  Lots of popcorn.

Busy day… Scones, pie, sausages, chicken.  Dishes.

Strange things happen in my kitchen, to be sure, but this is the first spontaneous cake.

Thanks to everyone for coming.  Excellent movie conditions.  We ended up skipping 9 (due to some technical difficulties after delays related to new equipment) and jumped from Not without My Handbag into Spy.  Very much fun.  Good friends, good food, good films.  See you all at the next one!

A movie night in the summer night!  Thinking maybe a double feature of Speed Racer and Blade Runner 2049.  Subject to change.  More to follow.

Looks like the weather is finally turning to our favor.  Saturday should be good!

I’ll be grilling out back about six.  Feel free to come grill something for yourself.  Otherwise I’ll see you after seven!

When the sun goes down it will get chilly.  Dress accordingly.  I have some blankets.

If you come down the alley, park on the street.  You cannot miss us.  If you come from 24th, it’s the house with the blue tarp in the front yard.

Go, Speed Racer!

Well, we only watched Speed Racer, but it was epic!  Thanks to everyone who made the show.  Good times!

Before the movie I did play randomly from the film Loving Vincent as the silent cartoon portion of the evening.
