CAN I KICK IT? ‘Fan Pick’ Edition – Recap

For this to be our first ‘fan pick’ edition of CAN I KICK IT? we were pleasantly surprised.  When you do something new, you have no idea what’s going to happen, but then you have moments like this where people participated with lots of and in some cases – very random suggestions of movie titles and then there’s the surprise announcement of the film that night, which, as we hoped would happen, proved to be the icing on the cake.

In the end, Road House, a classic title from the late 80’s starring Patrick Swayze (RIP), won the night.  Props to Songbyrd for hosting and thanks again to everyone who came thru as well as all of those who spread the word.  Lastly, special shout to Maishah for also run our pop-up shop.  To check out the full recap click Read the rest of this entry
