Howard the Duck

Thu December 8 at 5:30 PM, Como Dockside
1360 Lexington Pkwy N, St Paul, MN, USA (Map & Directions)
Como Dockside is running a Thursday night trivia-and-film series featuring the best movies of 1986-87. Someone must have misread that list or maybe lost a bet because next week's feature is Lucasfilm's crowning achievement, Howard the Duck.
Here's the official event listing: doors open at 6, trivia at 6:15, movie at 6:45. I recommend arriving between 5:30 and 6 to take advantage of happy hour food and drink prices on the main floor before heading upstairs.

Holy shit, we're actually doing this.

Have you seen it before? I haven't, but I've seen clips of it, and it is BAD. Mind-bogglingly bad. Like, I kind of feel guilty having even tangentially encouraged the posting of this event.

Thanks for organizing, see you there!

Oh my god. I wish I could go to this. That would be such a trip. I am almost considering skipping class...

That Bloom County strip is just gold.

You encouraged this behavior! I learned it by watching you!

This looks amazing. I'm unlikely to make it at 5:30, but hopefully I can make it before the movie starts!

I probably won't get there until closer to movie time myself - realized after posting that I do have something on the calendar that day and would feel moderately ashamed to say "sorry I skipped your retirement party for Howard the Duck".

Well, all the good stuff happens while I am otherwise occupied. I've got dress rehearsal for the Messiah performance Thursday evening.

Hmm, apparently there is a family dinner after the retirement party, plus things are going sideways at work. I hate to bail on an event I posted, but...

I'm also pretty dang exhausted today to be honest...

Sorry! I'll try posting another week when the movie is actually good, maybe after the holiday/finals season.
