Ok - so here's how it works – we need a venue, a first title and we need to get the message out to the friends.

The venue needs to be quiet, probably on a main strip like Glebe or Newtown.

How about Madame Fling Flong's for a venue - it's on King St, quiet during the week, it's cosy and cute and it's yummy.

I would love to see this thing happen.

Oops – just checked their website. Tuesdays is movie night at Fling Flongs. How about Monday July 26th?

Yep, yep, yep. Great for me. Cannot wait. Tanks for organising this, Wiggo.
