I finally made good on a promise to go to the movie theater. With the astronomical price of movie tickets and the ridiculously slow-moving concessions line with "deals" that cost as much as admission for two, I just don't enjoy going to the movie theater as much these days. Especially when we can watch so many movies from Netflix at home on the massive tv screen with our kitchen a few steps away. My boyfriend however, loooves the big screen. We went to see Contagion and stopped in for a quick snack at Ted's beforehand. They have a bar special from 4-7 pm every day worth checking out.
House-made potato chips with creamy dip.
I love potatoes and most things fried. This should have been a home run, ,but I thought they would be still hot. This had been made a while before, and while good, not amazing.
We tried the sliders.
Offered in beef or bison, we tried the bison and really enjoyed them. Great dish to share.
The Ted's at Hoffman was pretty quiet, and a good place to grab a bite to eat before or after a movie. Now the movie...eh. The highlight was watching Gwyneth Paltrow die a very unattractive death, although I'm not a GP fan. The boy thought the film played out more like a documentary and was a little disappointed. We should have gone to see Ides of March instead.
