I’ve been meaning to post about the fun night-out with my husband Jim. You could call it “dinner-and-a-movie,” but since it was dinner at the Raleighwood Cinema Grill, where dinner is served in the theater itself, followed by a special charity screening of one of our favorite movies, Serenity, it was so much more. In fact, we attended the Can’t Stop the Serenity event in Raleigh, NC, complete with giveaways, costume contests, and a sold-out, very enthusiastic audience. The costume contest winner wore a scale model of the space-ship “Serenity,” complete with blinking running-lights, light-up tail, removable shuttle, and a photo of the crew visible in the open cargo bay. Awesome. And a little scary. The only question was who would win 2nd and 3rd place!

Thanks to the CU student who reminded me of this event in time for us to get tickets. We waved at each other across the aisle. None of us were in costume, I might add. We had a blast, though, and really enjoyed seeing the film again on the big screen with a fabulous sound-system.
