Get ‘Moonstruck’ at Alamo Drafthouse’s Valentine’s Feast


Editor’s note: This article was originally published January 24, 2014

The Alamo Drafthouse will host its annual Valentine’s Day feast with the touching and funny and dysfunctional love story “Moonstruck.” The event takes place on (dug) February 14 at 7 p.m. at Drafthouse Lakeline (14028 N US Highway 183).

In honor of the tumultuous Italian-American tale of love and shouting, Drafthouse chef Trish Eichelberger will prepare a four-course menu with wine pairings that includes Italian wedding soup, the egg in a hole with roasted red pepper that Loretta’s mother prepares in the film, the steak and pasta dish Loretta (Cher) prepares for Ronny (Nic Cage). The dessert course of champagne zabaglione is a nod to the sugar-cube-filled flutes of champagne in the movie.

Tickets are $65 per person and can be purchased here.

How an 80-pound goldendoodle helped build a California wine brand

When Eric Story and Alison Smith-Story started their winery in 2014, they didn't follow any conventional path. An old saw advises that to make a small fortune in the wine industry, you should start with a large one. That was not an option, so they went the modern way. "We didn't have an inheritance, and we hadn't started and sold a software company...

Have you tried the Whole Foods sandwich that went viral?

Anyone can get their hands on the latest buzzy food craze: You just walk up to the deli at a Whole Foods, tell them you want “that TTLA sandwich” and pay $8 at the cash register.  That is, unless the deli is out of the ingredients, particularly the vegan tempeh “bacon” strips that are stuffed into the sandwich. Between...

Some choice words for diabetes

Type 2 diabetes was once known as adult-onset diabetes. But now that term is outdated: Increasingly it is a disease that begins in childhood. Between 2000 and 2009, the rate of Type 2 diabetes in children jumped more than 30 percent — and it is climbing especially fast among children from poor and minority families. The prevalence of the disease...
