BIFF (Burrard Inlet Fan Fellowship, a weekly meet-up of science fiction & fantasy fans) this Friday 14 April will celebrate Yuri's Night (a couple of days late) by watching _The Dish_, a sweet and funny film from Australia, starring the radio telescope which was used to capture telemetry from the first Apollo moon landing.
("What's Yuri's Night?" Yuri?s Night is the global celebration of human space travel, held annually on April 12. Yuri?s Night commemorates both the historic first flight of Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on April 12, 1961, as well as the launch of the first Space Shuttle (STS-1) exactly 20 years later. )
COST: Free to attend (though BIFF has an informal agreement with the restaurant that everyone orders something)
RSVP: Not necessary; just show up. This is a regular Friday gathering. BIFF is the group in front of the restaurant's wall screen.
