Screen on the Green- E.T. the Extra- Terrestrial

Thank you for coming to MIX a few weeks ago for our June get-together. As you know, I try to have the event every first Tuesday of the month to keep it consistent. However, for the month of July, we will have our gathering on the second Tuesday of the month (July 10th). This is mainly due to the 4th of July holiday falling right after our normal meeting time. We will have the event at ECCO lounge, which is located in Midtown (7th street). I will post an official e-mail later today.

On a side note, together with the organizer of euromeetup.com, we are trying to combine our groups to have joint get-togethers in order to expand our circle of friends. Our next meeting in July will also be posted on their website, so we should expect a good turnout. For those of you interested, the meetup group is meeting at Piedmont Park next Thursday for the “Screen on the Green”.

Screen on the Green is one of Atlanta’s most popular film series. Screen on the Green is a free event that shows classic Hollywood films in the great outdoors. In Atlanta, the films are shown at Piedmont Park in Midtown. Vendors are on hand for light snacks and beverages, but we are allowed to bring our own picnics as long as we abide by park and festival rules. So bring some snacks and drinks for yourselves. Low-backed chairs are allowed, but grills, umbrellas, and pets are prohibited. Movies begin at dusk, and there is usually a classic cartoon to kick things off.

We will meet around 6.30 pm so we can socialize before the film starts and then we can lean back and enjoy E.T.

Below is the info for the Screen on the Green which we are doing jointly with the euromeetup group.

Now to where we will meet for the screen on the green. Most of you know that it gets veeeeeeery busy down there. To make it possible to meet up and that everybody will find us we will be from 7 pm – 7.15 pm at the following location:

Come in through the entrance where 10th Street meets Charles Ellen Drive. The entrance is located at the South side of Piedmont Park and directly at a traffic light. When you go straight on the “main walkway” when you walk in, you will see the “Piedmont Park Pole” (a kind of little monument) to your left and circular seating benches to your right. Coming from the entrance they are located before the lake. We will meet at the pole and I will wear a hat with the meet up sign (same location and hat like at the picnic we had.).
