Can’t Stop the Serenity 2013 – Washington, DC



Can’t Stop the Serenity!!
Sci-Fi Outpost’s 2013 Charity Event

What is it?
Can’t Stop the Serenity (CSTS) is a unique opportunity to indulge your geeky side while doing some good! Since 2006, fans have organized screenings of Joss Whedon’s Serenity to raise funds and awareness to support Equality Now in their work for the protection and promotion of the human rights of women around the world. Join us as we aim to misbehave for a good cause!

Hosts: This event is hosted by the SciFi Fantasy Outpost Meetup Group (*AKA as the NoVa Browncoats). For more information about this group, visit SciFi Outpost or join their MeetUp group.

About ADH: If you have never been to the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse, you are missing a treat. They are a dinner theater (think movies not stage). They have hosted this event since its inception and are very supportive. So much so that last year, they developed a few drink specials just for us Browncoats (Firefly tea anyone?? How about a splash of Mudder Milk??)

Live Entertainment on Saturday: Comedian/Musician Mikey Mason will be joining us for a short set and we are PUMPED! Check out his music video below.
