Ok – so this really isn’t about food so much as a night out with the girls. I joined my friend Michelle and a group of gals Sunday night to watch the Sex and the City movie at Seattle’s Big Picture. I had never been to this theater before and I am now asking myself WHY NOT??? This is the most fun theater in Seattle! Where else can you go and in the “lobby” be surrounded by plush couches, mood lighting and a full bar.
First arrived was my BFF Michelle who loves her fancy shoes and purses! It was just like a scene from the movie…. coming down the stairs her spike heal broke off her Louis Vuittone shoes! Of course being miss “non-fancy shoes” I suggested breaking off the other one “and then you will have flats”. Ahhhh… – I guess that was not such a good idea. Miss “fancy shoes” looked at me with horror and then trooped though the nite with one high heal and one flat.
Next we buckied up to the bar, ordered our cosmos and then picked out front row seats in the theater – complete with foot stools that turn into tray tables for holding your bucket of popcorn served in Veuve Clique champagne buckets and/or cocktail glasses of Junior Mints and M&M – there are not boxed candies here people! You can even let the bar know before the movie; when you would like more drinks deliverd to your seats during the film.
Needless to say we all loved the movie (though I think that boxes of tissues should be available for these chick flicks) and had a great time together – we can’t wait for another movie & cocktails, girls-night-out at The Big Picture.
If this put you in the cosmo mood here is my favorite recipe:
Grapefruit Rosemary Cosmo
Makes 1 drink
1 sprig fresh rosemary
1 1/2 ounces grapefruit vodka
1 1/2 ounces Dish D’Lish Classic Cosmo Cocktailor
Garnish: 1 small fresh rosemary sprig
Break rosemary sprig in half and drop into a cocktail shaker. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and then measure in the vodka and Cosmo Cocktailor. Cap shaker and shake hard to incorporate the rosemary flavor. Strain drink into a martini glass. Garnish with a small sprig of rosemary.
Note: for a classic cosmo use regular vodka and deleat the rosemary.
