MARX BROTHERS MINI-GOLF MADNESS
Saturday, October 18th 2008 -- Tee Time at 1pm
McInnis Park Golf Center, San Rafael, CA
We’re on a movie studio back lot on a sunny California autumn afternoon. It’s the 20s. Or the 30s. Or maybe the early 40s. It’s Paramount, MGM, or United Artists. Maybe, just maybe, it’s RKO. There’s a lull in production. What to do? There’s always miniature golf! On a studio back lot? Yes. As the Studio Heads are soon to learn, letting the Marx Brothers wander around at loose ends can be dangerous. Harpo has gathered as many silly props as he could find and, with the help of Chico and assisted by the sly comments of Groucho, he has built a miniature golf course for the cast and crew of their latest film.
We’re appropriating the miniature golf course at the McInnis Park Golf Center in San Rafael, CA. An added bonus is the presence of a genuine Club House near the miniature golf course – a true 19th Hole for those that want to linger and discuss the day’s events. Everyone pays for their own beverages and food in the Club House. There’s also a shaded picnic area and snack bar at the entrance to the course, for those who would prefer to sit and watch the silliness unfold.
COSTUME: Costumes are required for this event. The suggested costume era is 1925 - 1945 sportswear or informal afternoon dress. Marx Brothers characters and Hollywood denizens (of any class) are encouraged but, definitely not required.
