Whether you put any stock in it or not, the countdown to the end of the Mayan calendar is quickly approaching, and I for one want to make sure all my bases are covered for the “End of Days.”
So, as the end draws near I find myself saying, “What should I do with myself?” Should I take that Airstream vacation with the family to the Grand Canyon I’ve always dreamed about? Or, should I invest in MREs and shotgun shells? Better yet what movie — or movies — should I watch before we all float into space?
I just don’t know.
(These are the types of things that keep me awake at night. Well, that and the occasional episode of HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO.)
After much thought, and a few beers, I’ve come to the conclusion that I want to start the beginning of the end with my friends, drinking a couple of pints of Sun King, munching on some tacos and watching that post-apocalyptic cult classic SHAUN OF THE DEAD.
With that thought in mind, the Indy Film Fest is presenting our (and potentially last if the Mayans knew what they were talking about) Roving Cinema at Sun King Brewery on Wednesday, December 12 at 7pm — 10 days before the end of the Mayan calendar. Tickets are just $8. Bring your “end of the world buddy,” a camping chair or blanket and a healthy appetite for all things post-apocalyptic.
If the movie isn’t enough to get you out of your doomsday bunker, how about a special beer, brewed by Sun King? Yep. They’ve got you covered with a special Armageddon brew that will be tapped that night. Rumor has it, this beer has been inspired by the Mayans themselves and will set you on the path to meet your maker. Our buddies at Sun King are also going to be tapping 9 other classic beers that night — 10 beers for your 10 final days, get it? And no one will go home thirsty. Sun King will be filling up growlers after the film.
Man can’t survive on beer alone you might say. Well Taco Lassi, www.tacolassi.com, is going to be on hand dishing up some of the finest food this side of the Rio Grande, and our good friends at Just Pop In! are going to be making sure your popcorn fix is curbed. I hear they have a new bacon flavored snack that will blow your hair back.
As if all of this isn’t enough, we’re going to be announcing the 2013 Indy Film Fest event calendar that night!
So here is your doomsday checklist:
• Buy your advanced tickets are just 8 bucks. (http://thefinalcountdownatsunking.eventbrite.com)
• Be at Sun King at 6:30pm on the 12th when the doors open.
• Bring something to sit on.
• Bring extra cash for the beers and food.
• Enjoy what maybe the last film you’ll ever see!
Portions of the beer and door proceeds will go towards the Salvation Army Indiana Divisionto help buy children toys for the holidays!
Let’s have a great send off to the world as we know it. Oh, and it’s probably not a bad idea to go ahead stock up on MREs and shotgun shells, just to be safe.
See you all at Sun King!
President, Indy Film Fest
