1. March Social: Dinner and a movie, March 8, 5:30 - 10:00 PM EST

And now for something completely different...dinner and a movie! On Thursday, March 8th at 5:30 p.m., join us at Neomonde Cafe in Raleigh for a healthy Mediterranean meal. Let's catch up: What have you been working on lately? Who's going to the STC Annual Summit, Writers UA, or other conferences this year? At about 6:45 p.m., we'll adjourn to the nearby Blue Ridge Cinema, home of the $2 movie. Movies rotate frequently, so we'll make a decision that night. You must R.S.V.P. so we can reserve plenty of tables. For more information and to sign up, go to http://stc-carolina-2012-03.eventbrite.com/(external link)
