A tribute to the Italian crime and action films of the 1960s and 1970s, Let the Corpses Tan focuses on a group of gold thieves who hide out with a artist who lives on a compound on a rocky hillside.

Cleveland Then and Now Book Signing

Sun., Nov. 25

Last year, Plain Dealer reporter Laura DeMarco released her first book, Lost Cleveland, which explored “long-gone places and historic events” to trace Cleveland’s glorious past. Set to come out on Dec. 1, her follow-up book, Cleveland Then and Now, returns to the sites of those places and many more to explore how the city has changed and where it stands today. The book pairs modern-day photos with vintage ones and shows how our fine city has transformed over the last 150 years; it includes photos from 67 different locations. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, Prosperity Social Club will host a book launch party with DeMarco, who'll be on hand to sign copies of the book, which will be on sale at the event. Admission is free, and no restaurant purchase is required. Prosperity will serve brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. that day; launch party dining reservations are recommended. Prosperity chef Ed Kubitz is adding a creamy chicken a la king over biscuit special to the menu as a nod to classic eateries such as Higbee's Silver Grille and Miller’s Dining Room. Drink specials include $1 off all local beers on draft (Sibling Revelry Red Ale, Masthead Chocolate Stout on Nitro and Fat Head’s Headhunter IPA). (Niesel)
