Friends of WHQR Meetup at Palate

Apr 24, 2015

Our first Friends of  WHQR Meet Up was a blast, so we are ready for round two! Please join us at Palate on North Fourth Street, Thursday, May 7 for another chance to meet other HQR and NPR fans in our area.  With so many great new places opening in and around downtown, we figured why not meet new friends while hanging out at a new bar! Come down to Palate, meet other HQR and NPR fans,  and see all the great new things going on in the Brooklyn Arts District. Also, take a second to check out the slideshow above from our last amazing meet up!

In this witty follow-up to the 2010 film The Trip, director Michael Winterbottom reunites comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon for a new culinary road trip. In this version, our heroes retrace the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy, all while indulging in sparkling banter and various impersonation-offs. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay of Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, cooking up a biting portrait of modern day masculinity. (Unrated, 1 hr 48 min)

Father James (Brendan Gleeson) is a priest who receives a death threat during confession and must find out who in his congregation is responsible before it's too late. Although he continues to comfort his daughter (Kelly Reilly) and reach out to help members of his church with their moral - and often comic - problems, he feels sinister forces closing in. Will he have the courage to face his own personal Calvary? A brilliant performance by all, Calvary faces weighty issues with humor, intelligence, and sensitivity. (R, 1hr 40min)
