Wherein we're going to jump, and possibly also jerk off.

I am so excited about this! We just booked Point Break Live, one of the most entertaining stage shows I've seen. I saw it three times during one of their earlier runs in San Francisco, and it's absolutely hilarious. You must see this. You must.

Not only is it a live adaptation of a movie that I love unashamedly and without irony -- shut up -- but each at each show, the Keanu Reeves role is cast from the audience, chosen by applause during their audition. There are waves, there's blood, there's skydiving.

Tickets are on sale now, and they're very likely to sell out. For the initial run, we're doing two shows a night, first Fridays in November, December and January.

We're also adding a Point Break Meatball Sandwich to the DNA Pizza menu. "Utah! Get me two."

Though not technically an 80s movie, having come out in 1991, I will also mention that tonight is New Wave City's 21st Anniversary. So, you know, it's finally old enough to drink.

    Y'all should offer a Bigelow Burger. I'd buy that for ten dollars.

    (It's not tragic to die eating what you love.)

    I'm excited to have another chance finally watch this -- thanks!

    Do you have any recommendations with regard to the balcony vs. floor seating, or does the equal pricing already answer my question?

      If you don't want to get wet, I'd recommend the balcony. However I'd also recommend that you not be the kind of person who doesn't want to get wet!
