Mid-Winter Get Together
March 5, 2016 @ 12:15 pm - 5:00 pm
The Winter Blues getting you down? Miss your Miata buddies? Well, if you are like me that’s a big YES to both questions. So let’s plan on getting together for a movie and something to eat at Patriot Place in Foxborough, MA.
Michael Edwards grew up in Great Britain dreaming of competing in the Olympics. Though he was a decent downhill skier he was not good enough to qualify for the Olympic team. So he looked around for another sport where he would have a better chance of qualifying. He soon discovered that Great Britain never had anyone compete on an Olympic level in ski jumping. So with no coach or financial backing he was determined to become the first. His dream came true and he was able to compete in the 1988 Olympics in Calgary, Canada. He soon became a media sensation with his unconventional style and spectacular crashes. He became known as “Eddie the Eagle”, and the movie we will be seeing is his story.
Looks like it should be a fun movie.
After the movie we will stroll through Patriot Place down to the Saga Hibachi Steakhouse for an early dinner.http://www.patriot-place.com/sagasteakhouse
This is one of those Hibachi restaurants which is a kind of show and meal all in one. We went here back in the winter of 2014 and everyone had a great time. Hopefully this year we will not have a blizzard start as we were eating dinner.
The times for this movie has not been posted yet, but plan on a starting time around 12:15, and dinner around 4:00. If you would like to join us for this little get together please notify me by 3/2/2015.
