This evening, from 9 p.m. to midnight, Lemon Hill is bringing in some bartending talent for a good cause. Phoebe Esmon and Christian Gaal of Emmanuelle, Michael Treffehn of Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. and Vince Stipo of Vernick Food & Drink and Lemon Hill’s Michelle Curtis will be pouring cocktails featuring Beefeater or Plymouth gin. The cocktails will be available for $8 and half of the proceeds will go to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.
The “Cocktails for a Cause” tour will continue with three additional stops this spring.
UPDATE: Just got word that tonight’s Big Lebowski movie night at the Franklin has been postponed. No new date set yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as something gets worked out.
Really, the only question is how the Franklin got through so many movie nights without doing The Big Lebowski.
But anyway, that cinematic travesty has now been remedied with a pair of movie-themed cocktail nights which will see the Franklin's Mike Treffehn and Phoebe Esmon from Emmanuelle sharing their respective bars on two different nights for two different (but equally awesome) theme nights.
You already know that the first one will be The Big Lebowski, but what about the second one?
It’s movie night again at Franklin Mortgage. And while no, they’re not actually showing the movie (which, they explained, would be either illegal or really, really expensive), they have put together a cocktail menu inspired by the awesome (and often tragically undervalued) Luc Besson science fiction cult hit, The Fifth Element.
Yeah, the one where Milla Jovovich spends most of the movie almost naked. Didn’t I already say it was awesome?
Anyway, drink-slingers Christina Rando and Colin O'Neill have got a Fhloston Paradise menu all put together and they'll be serving it tonight starting at 5pm. So if you're a fan (or even if you just really like drinking), get on over there and have yourself a Korben Dallas: Meat Popsicle. And while you're waiting, check out the full menu after the jump.
