REEL TASTY: Wet Hot American Summer

Come join us for camp. Saturday, July 31st at 7:00pm. This is a star studded flick but before any of them were stars. On the last day of summer camp, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Showalter, Marguerite Moreau, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, Christopher Meloni, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Zak Orth, A.D. Miles, and members of MTV’s sketch comedy group The State try and find someone to kiss at the end of the big talent show that night.

REEL TASTY: North by Northwest

Saturday, July 17th at 7:30pm. Being ex-Advertising people ourselves, this film seemed very appropriate. Ohh, but we are not killers. As Cary Grant, a hapless New York advertising executive, gets mistaken for a government agent by a group of foreign spies, he is chased across the country while he looks for a way to survive. We will follow him from New York to Chicago, across the great plains and finally to South Dakota with a culinary treat from each location. Have you ever heard of an Indian Taco? What do they grow most in Indiana? What is Chicago’s most underground famous food? These questions and more will be answered soon enough.

REEL TASTY: Raiders of the Lost Ark

Saturday, June 19th at 7:30pm. A trip around the world with Dr. Jones. Pulling from the countries the movie lands in, Aimee and I were sent into overdrive. From Nepal to Egypt to Peru there are tons of great tastes and ingredients to play with. For now, be prepared for a culinary voyage. We will post more as it develops. And no poison dates, we promise.

REEL TASTY: Sideways

Saturday, June 5th at 8pm. Bringing a bit of California to the BK. Aimee and I are bringing a special twist to this months dinner. We partnered up with our good buddy Jack to bring you some of the spectacular and rare wines mentioned in the movie. In between scenes, as you eat and sip, Jack will impart some vino knowledge and pose some wine facts vs film fiction while pouring the next flight. In the meantime, Aimee and I will have some delicious food pairings that are inspired by these delightfully fermented grapes. We will also draw on the fresh and simple flavors from southern California to complete the menu. We are feeling some lamb, maybe some risotto and the dessert on this one…whoa, hold onto your forks! We have been planning this one for a long time. The idea that when Paul Giamatti drinks so will you was too good a daydream to not make reality. For those aficionados, the wines will include Sanford, Fiddlehead, Byron, and Hitching Post, heavy on the Pinot Noir.

REEL TASTY: Ghostbusters

Saturday, May 15th at 7:00pm. The Opener. Our FIRST dinner on the deck for the season. Aimee and I have not finalized it yet. We are starting the season the same way we finished it. Hooray for consistency. We promise, as always, it will not disappoint. We are thinking Ghostbusters equals New York but we realize it also means marshmallows. That’s all for the hints right now. We will post more as it develops.

REEL TASTY Goodfellas

Saturday, October 10th at 6:00pm. The FINALLY. Our LAST dinner on the deck for the season. Once again, Aimee and I have not finalized it yet. We have been waiting for this one all summer. Just like Mama Scorsese’s meal we will be cooking up some Italian classics with a bit of our usual twist. We promise by the time you leave you will feel as full as Tony Soprano looks. We will update it as soon as we have the savory details.

REEL TASTY: A Streetcar Named Desire

Saturday, September 19th at 6:30pm. Once again, Aimee and I have not finalized it yet. We promise a Cajun and Creole delight for your palettes. Perhaps we can conjure the memories from a past Mardi Gras or NOLA Jazz Fest. The good memories that is. No one needs to be reminded of the night you lost your shirt and your dinner, almost simultaneously, then woke up on the steps of  that strip club on Bourbon with the big legs sticking out of it. I digress. We will update it as soon as we have the savory details.


Saturday, August 15th at 7:00pm. Once again, Aimee and I have not finalized it yet. We promise a summer menu that will remind you of summers by the beach as a little kid. Killer shark not included, unless of course we make it into a ceviche. We will update it as soon as we have the details.


Saturday, July 25th at 7:00pm. We are crafting it now. Chicken or fish? Hmmmmm. We will update it as soon as we have the details. For now you can bet it will be tasty and paired appropriately. As always. wine and beer will be paired with the meal.
