Gordon and the Whale Hosting Dinner And Special Screening Of The Departed Tonight
Planning on channel surfing and slurping leftover spaghetti in your pajamas tonight? Yeah, that sounds like a lame idea, especially when the popular film site GordonandtheWhale.com is teaming up with Molly Maguire's (5815 Live Oak St.) to present dinner and a movie tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Lakewood pub. For $25, you'll enjoy a three-course meal and a special screening of Martin Scorsese's 2006 Irish mob drama, The Departed. It's an appropriate choice considering you'll be watching the film while eating corned beef and cabbage in a whiskey-stained mahogany booth older than the bartender's ancestors. Don't worry if you loath cabbage; you get your choice of appetizer, entrée and dessert from the regular dinner menu. The meal also include cranberry juice, a nod to Leonardo DiCaprio's juice-swiggin' character in the film, so you'll have to pay extra for that scotch on the rocks. Too many of those and you may turn into that asshole who answers his phone during movies. Visit Eventbrite.com to purchase tickets.
Don't question the man who orders cranberry juice at the bar.
