Even though a good friend visited one of the OG "cat cafés" in Tokyo years ago and sagely commented, "There's nothing more sad than paying money for a roomful of cats to ignore you," it's a business model that has (little, furry, keyboard-playing) legs. Cat cafés have opened stateside and thrived in cities like San Francisco and Austin, and now Orlando is on the cusp of getting its own: the Kitty Beautiful. This Mewvie Night event is intended as an early chance to take a peek at the Kitty Beautiful's digs, sample their baked goods and meet some of the feline attractions; it's also a fundraiser to get over the final hurdles standing between you, cat-man and -lady, and total nirvana. The movie screening this evening will be The Princess Bride, but honestly it could've been Cannibal Holocaust and the audience wouldn't bat an eye. We just don't think it's the movie that people are coming to coo appreciatively at on this night.

7 p.m. Thursday, May 12 | The Kitty Beautiful, 223 N. Magnolia Ave. | 321-209-2081 | thekittybeautiful.com | $10
