Cinema Speakeasy: The Best Excuse to Get Hammered on a Weeknight!

Vests really are timeless, no??

Okay, I am officially going out and drinking on Thursday night even though I told myself I would cut back on the booze during the week.  This is too amazing to pass up because, seriously, who doesn’t like a good movie-based drinking game??

Tomorrow night GAFFTA (aka Gray Area Foundation for the Arts) will be hosting Cinema Speakeasy, a DRINK-A-LONG MOVIE SHITSHOW!!  I can’t believe I’ve never been to this.  Apparently it happens the first Thursday of every month, I’m assuming because it takes about 30 or so days to shake the debilitating hangover that ensues after this thing.  Anyway, tomorrow “The Warriors” is the featured film, which I’ve never seen.  Is that bad?  I feel like the answer is no.  When I ask the same question about “The Never-Ending Story,” though, forget about it.  Shunned for life.  Sorry my parents didn’t want to show fetus-me a movie involving creepy flying dragon-dog creatures.  (N.B. I don’t look like a fetus.  I hadn’t been born when “The Never-Ending Story was released is where that was supposed to go.)

Anyway, the movie, I think, is basically a really good excuse to play a very large, extended drinking game.  Brush up on the rules here.  Highlight: “Every time the Warriors win a fight: Yell ‘Warriors!’ and drink.”  Don’t have to ask me twice.

On top of that awesomeness, there’s a raffle for prizes from Funky Door Yoga, Beautiful Decay and Dancing Regeneration.  Free tickets to those who come dressed as a character from the movie.  Meaning slap on a vest and a bandana and you’re good.

    You having not seen “The Warriors” is a bad thing. You are not a “WARRRIOR” in my mind.

    The Warriors win a lot of fights but, in the end, they sort of lose the war. I suppose that’s about the same time we’re at home, throwing up.
