Dinner and a Movie – The 27 Club

The St. Johns Cultural Council has reported to Historic City News that on Monday, July 27, 2009, the doors will open and buffet dinner will start at 6:00 p.m. for the popular “Dinner and a Movie” hosted at Gypsy Cab.

The menu for this month’s event is Chicken Marsala, roast pork w/apple sausage dressing, Tortellini Pesto Genovese, salad with Gypsy Dressing, vegetable du jour, assorted desserts and coffee. A full bar is available.

Tom is dead. Elliot has been left behind. Tom was the front man of their successful band, Finn. He died on his 27th birthday. Elliot is left to decide if he, too, will join The 27 Club. Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain also belong to this infamous club—they all died at age 27.

As Tom and Elliot’s story is revealed and the history of their lives unfolds, it becomes clear that it takes more than just a number to determine one’s fate. The perils of rock and roll fame often lay only on the surface of more deeply felt wounds.

Elliot is devastated, and in a desperate attempt to escape from all he knows, he hires a grocery store clerk to drive him from Los Angeles to New York where Tom’s funeral is to be held.

“The 27 Club” captures not only the madness of grief but the resilience of the human spirit, and how even when one feels there is no hope and that death has cruelly taken away a loved one, life will remain and she will replace that loss with a humanity that can touch even the most unreachable soul.
