WHAT? For Food’s Sake Presents: A Special Screening of ‘Big Night’
WHEN? Thursday 7th July, 7pm–11pm
WHERE? The Sugar Club, Leeson Street, Dublin 2
WHY? If you’ve seen Big Night before, you’ll know why we wanna screen it. If you haven’t, you should check out the trailer or – even better – a couple of clips of the hilarious dialogue and sumptuous action. We love this movie about the desperately delicious efforts two Italian brothers go to to save their restaurant from sinking under the weight of local lack of appreciation – and we thought you’d enjoy a chance to watch it, and be fed some slick Italian risotto and salad for your dinner while you’re at it. And to ensure your full comfort throughout, there’ll be a full bar serving everything from vino to cocktails and good old pints, with table service for those who get there early enough to grab a table.
WHO? For Food’s Sake is a collective of food-loving folk including myself (Aoife Carrigy), Oisin Davis (manager of The Sugar Club, food blogger at rockcookbook.com and the genius behind The Ticket’s monthly ‘Booking the Cooks’ column, in which he rumages out recipes from the most unlikely muso sources); Aisling Rogerson and Luca Dalfonso (familiar faces to regulars at Dublin Food Co-op and Dublin Flea Market where they run the cafe, as well as at various summer festivals); and Gareth Granville (one of the chefs at the recent Wildside Banquet at Body & Soul as well as being involved with various farmers’ markets about the country).
HOW MUCH? €5 on the door for the movie, plus a bowl of risotto for €5 (without spaghetti) and/or bowl of salad for €5. We’ll even throw in some free timpano at the end of the night – but we promise not to kiss it first, if you promise not to threaten to f**king kill us. (It’ll be that good!)
