February 7 | 7:00 PM | Prince Theater Black Box
Get a jumpstart on your Valentine’s Day cocktail party patter with sibling authors André & Tenaya Darlington (TCM’s Movie Night Menus). Sit back, enjoy a trio of specially paired drinks, and let this lively brother-sister duo guide you through a spirited history of Hollywood. Glamorous attire encouraged; singles, couples, and love triangles welcome!
The evening includes appetizers, a rollicking presentation of film clips (including some choice pre-Code moments!), a Q&A with the authors, and a flight of hand-crafted drinks (a French 75, a Manhattan, and an original Daiquiri). You’ll leave with tips on how to make great craft cocktails at home, a list of boozy movies, plus new insights into Prohibition and Hollywood entertaining. Prepare for a fun-filled, red carpet affair! Who needs Netflix and chill, when you can have Hollywood and…swill?
The Darlingtons are currently on the Turner Classic Movie channel as food & drink experts, and they have spent the last two years studying the role of cocktails in Hollywood films, from the 1930s to the present. Their book, TCM’s Movie Night Menus, discusses two of America’s greatest creations – Hollywood and cocktails – pairing classic films with choice libations. Plus, André and Tenaya will sign your copy at the event!
