Hot Dogs

Quentin Tarantino’s debut, Reservoir Dogs, is rightly considered a classic, and most fans know it backward and forward. That doesn’t mean there’s no new way to enjoy it, though — like, for instance, at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema’s Reservoir Dogs Beer Dinner.

“We like to take a movie that people have seen a bunch of times, and this is a next step in discovering the film anew,” says Keith Garcia, creative manager for the Littleton Alamo. “Reservoir Dogs is about a whole group of different people with different flavors, as it were. It’s really cool for our chef to figure out what each flavor is and how to combine them into each of these dishes and make for a once-in-a-lifetime viewing.”

At the beer dinner, you’ll get a four-course meal based on the film’s iconic moments, each paired with a select beer from Breckenridge Brewery. Start off with a diner-inspired first course and work your way through a salad course based on Mr. Orange and Mr. White’s car ride, plus a darkly humorous entree take on the infamous cop-torture scene (hint: Fried pig skin is a key element) before ending with a Mr. Pink-inspired dessert.

The program starts tonight at 7 p.m. at the Alamo, 7301 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton. For tickets, $50, and more information, visit
