An ex-con, Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) has had a new life, free of crime, for years. But he is still in the same town, alongside those who have not changed their ways. Bartending at a local tavern brings him in the vicinity of cash that had been stolen from the mob, threatening to pull him back into the vortex of the life he has left behind. Join us for an evening of pizza, picture and a chance for thoughtful discussion. Pizza 6p, film 7p. Movies shown on 58" plasma TV. For pizza, let us know your preference, meat or veggie.

6:30p  First Friday in Danville. A not terribly extensive search led us to Luna Loca in Danville, a good Mexican restaurant in “The Livery” shopping center on San Ramon Valley Blvd. with good food, good prices, and good drinks. It’s pretty easy to get to: From I-680, take the Sycamore Valley Rd. exit, turn right on San Ramon Valley Blvd., and then take the first left (there’s a light) and Luna Loca will be on your right. Check their website at http://www.lunalocadanville.com/ for more information. I’ll make a reservation based on how many I think are coming, but please let me know if you’re thinking of attending so I can change the reservation.
