From an email:

“The League of Extraordinary Film Geeks + The Betamax Video Club will be hosting an 80’s Movies Night at Ten Tigers Parlour (old Chez Billy at 3813 Georgia Avenue, NW) on Sunday, February 26. The upstairs lounge will open at 6 PM and the event will begin promptly at 7PM.

A celebration of 80’s B movie classics and home video club culture. This month we delve into classic space opera with a healthy dose of double-entendre and slap stick comedy. Arrive early to enjoy a cocktail and the retro synthwave soundtrack in the upstairs lounge. Then sit back as a pair of space pirates battle the Templars of Mithra to restore the galaxy’s water supply.”

woodridge

If you told me ten years ago…

True story – I had friends who lived in Woodridge years ago must’ve been around 2005 and I went to their house for a BBQ. It was around 22nd Street, NE. So I figured, I’d just walk to Rhode Island and catch a cab when I was ready to go. This was before Lyft and Uber. So it’s relatively early like maybe 8 or 9pm. I walk to Rhode Island Ave and there are zero cabs. A big old goose egg. OK, I’m a walker (I walked to the BBQ but knew walking all the way home wasn’t a great option), so I figure what the hell I’ll just walk until I see a cab. hahaha It’s easy to forget the former cab dead-zones. There were many. It used to be impossible to catch a cab at Wonderland if you can believe that. Anyway, I get about 1 block on Rhode Island and this lady who must’ve been 70 years old or so makes a beeline straight towards me and says – “where are you going?” I say, I’m walking towards the metro and trying to catch a cab. She says “oh no you’re not.” She physically grabs me and walks to the bus stop and waits with me and RIDES WITH ME to the metro (I think it was Brookland) to make sure I got there OK. I’ll never forget that night. That by the by, is a very good example for those who ask me about the meaning of the beautiful life.

Anyway, enough about me, check out this listing I spotted while looking for today’s GDoN:

I can imagine what my guardian would have to say about this…
