For as long as they have existed, there has been a logical connection between movies and food. One of the iconic series that cemented this connection for me is the TBS series “Dinner & a Movie.” For over a decade, “Dinner & a Movie” has offered a generous helping of blockbuster movies tied in with a theme menu that’s cooked while you watch.
Here are a few of my all-time favorites:
- Forrest Gump and the “Shrimp Happens” recipe
- Coming to America paired with “Land of the Free-Range Turkey Burgers with Jerri Curly Fries” recipe
- Thelma and Louise presented with “Two Hot Peppers on the Lamb” recipe
If you have watched one of these shows, you know how entertaining it is to add the cooking angle to a classic flick.
Tonight, we are trying our own version of dinner and a movie on the Back Patio. Starting at 7 p.m. you can watch the family movie, “Hoodwinked,” on our large inflatable screen. Inspired by the classic tale of Red Riding Hood, this entertaining story involves a goodie bandit who is after Granny’s recipes.
And the dinner… well, that is really the best part! You can customize your dinner to whatever you want given the vast offerings at FRESH. You can enjoy classic fare from our 801 Grill or go inside the store and choose from our delicious chef-case items, soup and salad bar, or taco and sandwich bar. Or, in the spirit of the goodie fairy, you can take advantage of our Pie-Palooza and partake in a delicious FRESH made pie and some free ice cream! Goodies indeed!
