Vineyard to Vineyard: Of All the Gin Joints ...

Coincidence and "Casablanca."

Okay, the Newes of America isn't a gin joint.

And bartender Doug is in no way my ex-romance.

Still, it was a Casablanca-worthy coincidence that the first place I chose to have a beer in my old/new home town was the Newes, where Doug quickly recognized me from my pre-Patch job in a Napa Valley spice shop.

Bartenders are known for being able to chat with and remember just about anyone, but this encounter was off the charts!

If you'd like to have a reunion with the original Casablanca, the Martha's Vineyard Film Center has a special event coming up Sunday: A screening of the classic film at 4 p.m., followed by a prix-fixe ($35) Moroccan meal at Lucky Hank's in Edgartown at 6:15 p.m.

According to the film center's website:

You must make your reservation with the restaurant directly - please call (508) 939-4082 and tell them you'd like to reserve for the Film Society's MOVIE & DINNER event. Seating is limited.

In other movie news, the film center is showing Kurosawa's Rashomon tonight at 7:30 p.m. 

Movie tickets are $10, $7 for MV Film Society members.
