Mad Men Premiere Viewing Parties


This Sunday marks the premiere of Mad Men’s final season and a couple of Philadelphia restaurants are getting into the spirit with special viewing parties.

At Pennsylvania 6, the fun kicks off at 9 p.m. with the Midtown Village turning itself into Mad Six, a night of revelry complete with 1960s-themed food, Mad Men-inspired cocktails and a screening of the show. Admission is free but reservations are strongly encouraged.

Guests are encouraged to dress as Mad Men characters or at least in their period-best. During the show, lights inside will be dimmed and the volume turned up. During commercials, a retro DJ will play.

Mad Men & Chicken Kiev

Antioch Farms Chicken Kiev

Sunday was the premiere of the fourth season of Mad Men and as our Twitter feed indicates, there’s a significant crossover between Foobooz readers and Mad Men fans. One scene focuses on a date at Jimmy’s La Grange and Chicken Kiev. Growing up, chicken Kiev was an almost common dish in Mamma Foobooz’s kitchen. A search of MenuPages finds Chicken Kiev isn’t as popular as it once was. It only appears on the menu of  four Eastern European restaurants in Northeast Philadelphia:

  • Bordeaux
  • Golden Gates
  • Palace Royal
  • Stolovaya

We’re not familiar with any of these places, are you? Know of anywhere else that serves up the dish, let us know in the comments.

Check out Mamma Foobooz’s involved Chicken Kiev recipe after the jump.
