Technically Groundhog day is February 2 – but Pittsburgh filmmakers is showing the film Groundhog Day this Sunday, January 24, 2010 – just in time to get you in the mood for the actual groundhog day next week.

Bill Murray was never more delightfully rude than in this clever film that’s still fresh and funny. It’s even getting scholarly attention. Murray plays Pittsburgh weatherman Phil Connors, who inexplicably keeps waking up in the same day at a B&B in Punxsutawney. The Brits loved this film and awarded the original screenplay their version of an Academy Award. (Harold Ramis; 1993; 101 min)

You may have read an article or two about how fabulous the new J’eet Cafe in Lawrenceville is. Well, I heart that they are now open Saturdays for brunch! For all the poor working stiffs who can’t make it to try out their extensive menu of crepes, sandwiches and salads, this is the solution. My favorites are the Crepito (egg, swiss, bacon, and caramelized onions folded into a crepe) and Le Breton (a sandwich of spicy sopressata, brie, cornichon, garlic aioli, and mixed greens). J’eet also has great coffee, free WiFi, and features a prix fixe meal at Brunch.
