    It wasn't bad. I couldn't help but think that part of the film was Metroid fighting Jack-Jack.

    Star Wars at Firehouse Lounge?

    I'd hit it!

    :p We're going.

    sigh. I'm getting too old for this. I don't think I'm up to another late night, especially on a work night. Even to go see Qui. :(

    Strip District. Around 24th and Penn or so. They have a website that has the actual address (the link is earlier in the thread).

    Are folks interested in eating at the Firehouse Lounge, or somewhere else (e.g., Kaya - a personal favorite of mine two blocks away)?

    Sounds good. (I <3 the Strip!)

    And as long as I can get a ride, I'm there. (Probably the 17th would be good for me)

    I'm planning to eat at Kaya (20th and Smallman - Caribbean food, muy bien) before heading over (I'll be at Kaya at about 7:00 PM). For those of you driving, parking shouldn't be a problem during the week.

    I still say one of these days we should go to Klavons. (Old fashioned ice cream parlor in the Strip. They make their own whipped cream).

    TRADMIC's review:

    Firehouse Lounge is awesome. Outside patio, big comfy couches, paprika'ed popcorn.

    Some dude costumed as Qui Gon, and man was he a dead ringer! He got a little tipsy and started dancing on the bartop though.

    We totally MST'ed the whole movie (worse than when we had the
    O-OT party), which was ok since we had the place pretty much to ourselves. :p That's right... no need for a buffer. The projector and scrren is such that you can make shadow puppets that bite off Jar Jar's head.

    End of night sequence:

    bartender girl: "OMG I can't wait til these people get out of here..."

    us: "Ok then, see you next week!" [face_mischief]

    Cool. What's the movie next week-that might be better for me than the 17th? (Baby Sis has a concert.)

    Cool! (Mmmm...bearded Obi!)

    All right-update. I THINK I can get a bus to town, and then walk, as long as it's not too far. However, I need to know, what time does it end, and how to manage getting home.

    We can be shuttle drivers!

    Next week I don't think Jason can get out of work in time to go. I have jury duty, but I'm sure I'll be out of there and still up for seeing AotC.

    :)

    I'm not going to be at ROTS tomorrow night - Kathy and I are heading to the Rivertowne Inn in Verona to watch the Pens game. I may see if my friend Rich is interested in going (since he's thinking about going to Comicon).
