BIG NIGHT at EARTHY EATS
FRIDAY 17 MAY, 7.30PM
New Jersey, 1950s. Two brothers run an Italian restaurant. Business is not going well as a rival Italian restaurant is out-competing them. In a final effort to save the restaurant, the brothers plan to put on an evening of incredible food.

DAYS OF THUNDER at BALLS’n’BUMPERS

Cole Trickle enters the high-pressure world of NASCAR racing. He’s a hot driver with a hot temper, and this attitude gets him into trouble not only with other drivers, but members of his own team as well. We’re very excited to announce that Balls’n’Bumpers will have a NASCAR car in the store that was actually in the film!
