faceoffcagetravolta

In December, they did Top Gun–a classic of American cinema–with excellent themed cocktails based on the movie. And now, the crew from Franklin Mortgage is going back to the well once again for a Sunday Movie Night event featuring the completely insane Cage/Travolta masterpiece Face/Off. There’s gonna be cool drinks for just $11 a pop, pizza from the guys at Pitruco, Mike Treffehn and Catherine Manning behind the stick, and all the madness that comes of anything involving Nicolas Cage.

So, Sunday night, January 26. Make your plans now. And check out the cocktail menu below to get you in the mood.

    What time does it start at? Are reservations needed?

    • Aaron Siak

      5pm – 2am. Pitruco starts service at 9. We don’t take reservations. Cheers!

  • Nat

    I love a good movie night but can’t imagine it is worth it to a bar to have an event like this with some movie rights being pretty expensive. This is older and therefore cheaper, I am sure. But a lot of places in the city do these now and wonder if it really brings in enough business to cover the cost of rights….

    • Aaron Siak

      Nat, we are not actually showing the movie; the special menu for the evening is inspired by the movie. Hope to see you on Sunday. Please introduce yourself. Take care.

      • Julie

        Wow, you guys should rethink how you phrase this and what you call the night. I also totally thought you were showing the movie (even after I read the email twice trying to figure out how that would even work). “Sunday Movie Night” suggests there will actually BE a movie.

        • Aaron Siak

          Hi Julie. We will rethink fun, and think about obstacles going forward. I apologize for our lack of foresight. Text me directly with questions. 773-983-1359. Aaron.
