Our first gathering of the New Year is Here! Happy New Year! And what better way to kick off (or on) 2017 then, our 39th Anniversary Saps gathering of Film, Food & Fun.

On this Funtastical evening we will present TAKE THAT (Don't get Mad, Get Even) NIGHT! We start with a riotous cartoon, SCREWBALL SQUIRREL (1944), directed by Animation legend Tex Avery. Then, Stan and Ollie cause mischief a plenty in the Shin Kicking, Pants Ripping classic YOU'RE DARN TOOTIN (1928). Directed by none other than Edgar (Slow burn) Kennedy. Our own Russ Peck will provide another amazing LIVE music score! Our guest comedian is fan favorite Charley Chase in SNAPPY SNEEZER (1929). This hilarious short has Charley meeting lovely Thelma Todd on a train trip. Later, he meets her cantankerous Dad. Charley doesn't know it, but he is responsible for many slapstick catastrophes befalling this poor guy. Intermission greets us as those ever loving Keeleys dish up and out, another assortment of tantalizing treats!

After Intermission, we will have a double dose of cinema greatness. 1) In THEM THAR HILLS (1934), Ollie has gout, and Doctor Billy Gilbert recommends plenty of fresh air and relaxation. The mountains provide the fresh air, bootleggers provide the moonshine, Stan makes sure there's NO relaxation and Charlie Hall & Mae Busch add to the fun. 2) In The Academy Award Nominated, TIT FOR TAT (1935), the boys meet up with Charlie & Mae once again when they open an Electrical Store next door to Hall's Grocery. The only time in the history of the Laurel and Hardy series where we see a sequel to a previous short! Laughs a plenty is guaranteed. All this entertainment, fun and food for a miserly $7. How lucky can you get?

See ya there!

Your Grandest of Sheiks
