FlickIt! Fridays. Each month the Naro partners with a nonprofit to show a classic movie and sell some local brews. This month they're showing Dirty Dancing and the League of Women Voters Education Fund will benefit from the brew sales.

In 1963, "Baby" Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is 17 years old and spending her last carefree summer with her family at a resort hotel in the Catskills before enlisting in the Peace Corps. Bored to tears by most of the older guests at the resort, she's intrigued by a party going on in the employees' dormitory and discovers a style of dancing that would get you kicked out of the senior prom in no time flat. She falls head over heels in love with the resort's dance instructor Johnny (Patrick Swayze), and volunteers to be his new partner, determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer. (1987, PG-13, 100mins)

A benefit for the League of Women Voters Education Fund. Sponsored by Coelacanth Brewing Company - CBC, A W Shucks Raw Bar & Grill, bottleBOX, Doughminion Donuts, and Linda Daniel, REALTOR.
