Saturday, August 24th at 7pm. We’re going back…to the future. We realize that doesn’t make much sense but we had to open with it. We love everything about this dinner including the Huey Lewis music we’ll get to use at various points in the evening. Ant and I love this movie. In fact the entire trilogy was in heavy rotation until the mid 90’s at the Anello’s house. Besides the amazing story, epic-joke-per-second, MJF prime on screen magic, we’ll draw from the entire trilogy to craft this menu. Expect some 1985 dishes and some 1955 throwbacks but we’re thinkin’ we might blast you into 2015 and dip you even further back to the wild west of 1885. What that means exactly…we have not completely figured out but we’re working on it.
Expect a menu of enchantment under the sea, the word that makes Marty lose his cool and some inside jokes translated to menu items. We’ll augment that with some of our favorite dishes from the decades that the movie is set in. 2015 will be tough, but we’ll try. Ant and I hope you can join us for what will be a multi-decade adventure not only into our childhood but into the childhood of our predecessors.
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.
Let’s ride! A song filled, dance inducing, joke a minute, slapstick comedy, anchored by three amazing comedians has us counting the minutes until the 24th. Join us to fight the Evil El Guapo and eat some tasty, cheesy, crispy, spicy, hearty, hot, sweet, salty, luscious, peppery, juicy food. I suppose we could have just said delicious but then again, we are not writing a telegram. Bring your little buttercup and stay a while, while. Ok, we promise to try and tone down the movie quotes once we finish writing this.
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.
