The Dark Knight Rises Feast at Alamo Drafthouse

The Dark Knight Rises Feast at Alamo Drafthouse

The third and final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy is upon us.  There’s a new villain, Tom Hardy, a new heroine, Anne Hathaway, and Christian Bale reprises his role as Batman in an effort to save Gotham City.  Alamo Drafthouse is taking everything we love about this series (intensity, sex appeal, suspense, action) and recreating those sentiments in the form of a five-course foodgasm.  We all know that Alamo has some of the best food around on any given night, but the dark knight calls for a special gourmet menu, filled with caviar, cured duck breast, crusted roast lamb chops and a bunch of other fancy stuff.

This exuberant affair will be one that Bruce Wayne wouldn’t miss.  Your $10 ticket will guarantee a seat for The Dark Knight Rises on Monday, July 23.  You will then get an email confirming your intention to purchase the feast portion, which will be $55.  Although you are not required to purchase the feast, this Food & Film event will not offer the normal Alamo menu for the viewing, but there is another showing if you are craving some fried pickles and Porky’s Pizza.

If this is indeed the last film of the beloved Batman series, then you should go down in style with a multi-course, chef prepared feast that indulges all of your Dark Knight inspired food fantasies.

Do512 Welcomes Man Bites Dog!

Jeremiah Allen established the Austin hot dog joint Man Bites Dog in November of 2009. After visiting the popular Hot Doug’s restaurant in Chicago, Allen was inspired to create a restaurant in Austin where he could put his own unique spin on the traditional hot dog. The idea was realized in 2009 when the Man Bites Dog food trailer popped up in the South Austin Trailer Park and Eatery on South 1st. With the tag line ‘Hot Dogs Unleashed’, the trailer began serving a variety of traditional and gourmet hot dogs made with high-quality local ingredients.

After operating the trailer for roughly a year-and-a-half, and attracting a loyal following of hot dog fanatics in the process, Man Bites Dog was able to open their first brick-and-mortar restaurant, becoming the latest local food trailer success story. Designed by Jamie Chioco, who has also done architecture and planning for the likes of Perla’s and Galaxy Cafe, the first Man Bites Dog restaurant opened its first storefront at Burnet Road and North Loop in June of 2011. Six months later Man Bites Dog opened its second restaurant, this one located on South Lamar in the building that was previously occupied by Dog Almighty.

The menu at Man Bites Dog is approachable yet also adventurous. For the traditional hot dog lover they offer the Old School beef dog with ketchup and mustard, a Chili Cheese Dog, and the Abe Froman, their Chicago dog topped with onions, pickle relish, tomatoes, pickle spear, sport peppers and celery salt. For the adventurous they offer a line of signature creations like the Danger Dog, an all-beef frank wrapped in bacon, fried, and topped with queso fresco, jalapeños, and hot sauce. There’s also the popular Bahn Mi Dog, made with pork sausage, peanut sauce, cucumbers, carrots, jalapenos and cilantro.

Man Bites Dog uses all-beef Hebrew National franks and delicious kolache buns baked fresh in Austin. Side items include fries and tots, pulled pork mac n’ cheese, fried pickles, and Dojo Dogs, which are bite-sized franks with green chilis and cream cheese deep-fried in an egg roll wrapper. The South Lamar location will soon be serving their own hand-cut french fries. To wash it all down they offer a nice variety of beers, and also have a menu of recommended beer & dog pairings such as the Dog Named Sue & Bombshell Blond, the Greek Dog & Austin Beerworks Fire Eagle, and the Cuban & Austin Amber.

Man Bites Dog has a daily Happy Hour from 4-7pm with a rotating beer special, half off side items, and $1 Lone Stars on Thursdays. If you ever have a craving that only a hot dog will cure, we highly recommend that you check out Man Bites Dog. To find out more you can visit them online at manbitesdogaustin.com, and on Facebook and Twitter.

Oh, and be sure to ask them about the Cartoon Dog. The beef hot dog coupled with peanut butter and jelly and Cap’n Crunch cereal. It may sound a little weird, but everyone who has tried it says it’s really delicious!
