One Quiet Voice Can Ignite a Revolution
The heat is on but we’re all cool and ready for a night with our Chicks. We’ll return to BJ’s Restaurant for cocktails and a special Chick Flick dinner buffet. Afterwards, it’s over to Reading Cinema in Grossmont Center for our feature film, Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
The film tells the remarkable story of White House butler Eugene Allen (played by Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker), who served eight U.S. presidents over the course of 30 years, and witnessed sweeping social change during his three decades of service at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Inspired by Will Haygood’s Washington Post article, Lee Daniels’ The Butler features Robin Williams as Dwight Eisenhower, John Cusack as Richard Nixon, Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan, James Marsden as John F. Kennedy, Liev Schreiber as Lyndon B. Johnson, and many more. Academy Award® nominated Lee Daniels (“Precious”) directs and co-wrote the script with Emmy®-award winning Danny Strong.

The dinner buffet will feature several salads: EnLIGHTened Thai Mango, Santa Fe (both without chicken), and the Garden Medley. In addition, we’ll enjoy flatbread pizzas; Black and Bleu (sans the steak), Roasted Vegetable and Goat Cheese as well as Margherita Fresca.
Our time is now confirmed. We will meet at 5:30 p.m.
