Free Meal & Flick: Feb. 28 is Chili Friday Movie Night #2

We had a ball at Chili Friday #1, last month. Folks outdid themselves preparing really fabulous chili, slaw, cornbread and cookies. And the movies was a hit – people singing along with the Mamas and Papas, Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix, Scott McKenzie …

Our February 28 show,  “Twenty Feet from Stardom,” promises more great ,music … and a chance to meet the backup singers for Sting, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, and Bette Midler, among others, and hear directly from those bandleaders, too. It’s a sweet, tuneful movie full of good, personal stories – some inspiring, some poignant, all very real views into the live of women in the music biz. You’ll leave feeling a song in your heart, and with much more appreciation for the singers who make those stars look so good.

Doors Open and Chili served at 5:30; movie at 7 pm. Get there early for maximum fun and best seats – tho there’s not a bad one in the house!

Step up and run!
