We’re joined by the wonderful Sharlene Wellington, owner or partner in many lovely Brooklyn bars (also, she’s married to Stu). She wanted to discuss the 1984 summer camp comedy Meatballs Part II, and as three middle-aged men who were raised on dumb 80’s shit, who were we to argue? Meanwhile, Sharlene brings her Jewish summer camp experience to the fore, Elliott waxes poetic about making first contact, Stuart promises some future Baby Boomer rants, and Dan takes us on a trip through Meatballs history.

Sharlene was a great addition. Please have her back.
And I really like it when you guys do these older flops. You should have at least one retro month where you break out the vintage cheese.
