Rockville Zombie Walk
Friday, October 30, 2009
7 PM meet up, 7:30 Walk begings
Meet at the Apollo, 12 North Washington Street
For the absolute fun of it, turn yourself into a zombie and walk through Rockville Town Center among the unsuspecting. Who used to go to the Rocky Horror Picture Shows? Who just wants to laugh and have fun on a Friday night? What else are you going to do? Rockville Central friend Bill Bird and I are hosting this flash mob.
7:00 PM All the undead in Rockville will meet up at the mall at 12 North Washington Street to form the mob. Have a soda, drink or coffee while you wait. There’s full bar in the Apollo Restaurant /or/ coffee and gelato/desserts at Lola’s Cafe right next door. Get to know your fellow zombies. BUT MAKE IT QUICK!
7:30 PM The mass of zombies will limp off around the streets of Town Center to see who’s still among the living in Town Square.
7:50 PM Zombieland at the Rockville Regal 13!!!! What could be better than a theater full of zombies? See it with any and all of the undead in Rockville. It’s a ZOMCOM!!
From the WaPo, “Don of the Dead” features DC native Ruben Fleischer as Director. Here’s a bit:
“…”Zombieland,” which was written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, turns out to be just plain hilarious, as Fleischer manages to keep the gore apolitical, the gross-outs appealing and, in between, the story surprisingly touching. (The film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin.) But Fleischer allows that there’s something symbolic at the core of why zombie movies — be they dead serious or scathingly satirical — continue to fascinate audiences.”
You might want to get your tickets in advance especially if you limp slow (but hey really, those trailers last forever):
9:30 PM The movie is 1 hr. 21 mins. Austin Grill is thrilled to host the mob after the movie and will even put on a scary movie for us! So we can socialize after too.
Tell everyone. Spread the word around like a zombie virus.
Turning yourself into a zombie can be as easy as some powder and lipstick or much more elaborate. Who might have died that you could come back as? (If you are still among the living and not undead, come in your street clothes and be sure to bring a pencil. No survivor goes anywhere without a pencil as a weapon. Larger weapons are not advised!)
If you don’t want to zombie, the Rockville Sister City Corporation’s Annual Fall Wine Tasting of Red Wines of France is also this Friday, October 30, 2009 at 7:30 PM at the Rockville Senior Center. $25 for RCSS members, $30 for non-members. Heavy Hors d oeuves included.
