I’ll Have What She’s Having… it’s the WHEN HARRY MET SALLY NYE Feast!

"It's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve... I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.''

Not only is WHEN HARRY MET SALLY one of the best, smartest romantic comedies of the 1980s, it also features perhaps the greatest New Year's Eve scene in cinema history... well, in the history of romantic comedies at least. And hopefully it doesn't spoil it for anyone to say the way this movie ends is pretty much how, deep down, all of us want our New Year's Eves to end. In real life. Every year.

While we can't quite promise your night will end with big smoochies and proclamations of love as the clock strikes midnight, we can promise a supremely entertaining and classy night of watching, laughing, and feasting to close out 2010 in style. Ritz head chef Elijah Horgan has composed a special menu themed to the film, and of course we'll have our very own New Year's champagne toast. And if you do find yourself kissing your long time "friend" and professing your love after the show, well, you can thank us later.

Tickets for this show go on sale this Weds, Dec 15 at noon. (We'll post Elijah's sure-to-be-fabulous-menu Weds as well.) They will sell out, so don't wait! They'll be available here.

P.S. There is, of course,  that other famous scene from the movie.  Check out this take on it from VW's recent "See Films Differently" campaign.
