Wednesday, October 12th: October Happy Lunch And a Movie!: The group decided to change things up a bit with this month’s lunch and tie it with plans to see the new movie based on the novel we read last year for the Pinot & Prose Book Club: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. We’ll gather at 11:30 a.m. for an early lunch at Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery (206 SW Morrison), then walk up two blocks to the Regal Pioneer Place theater (340 SW Morrison – inside Pioneer Place Mall) for the matinee showing at 1:00 p.m. Parking is available within a block of both the restaurant and theater using the Smart Park Garage located between SW Alder and SW Morrison, with entry from either SW 3rd or SW 4th. We will need RSVP’s by 5 p.m. Monday, October 10th to make a table reservation.
