Sushi Happy Hour

Sunday, October 5, 2008

Anjou on Urbanspoon
There are so many positive aspects to being laid off - having time to cook and eat breakfast, starting a blog, getting back to my painting and the list goes on and on, including, finally being available to do Happy Hours!

Two I can recommend thus far are Anjou (206 Market Street) and Drinkers Pub (1903 Chestnut Street)

Drinker's Pub allows you to gorge yourself on
$1 tacos, 25cent Wings and $1 Rolling Rock ponies- This is great blue collar fun!

However, my need to "dine" as often as my unemployment check will allow, makes me more partial to Anjou, which offers $3 sushi rolls from 4-6pm. I sampled their fresh and delicious:
Spicy Tuna, California, Eel Avocado, Salmon and "Olde City" rolls, of which the secret ingredient is Philly cream cheese. As you may have noticed, for me, an enticing Happy Hour has more to do with the fare offered than the libations, and I have to admit $5 for Japanese beers and Mojitos isn't much of a drink discount, but they also offer $3 on tap beers.

Weather won't permit for long, but the other appealing part of Olde City Happy Hours in general, is the fact that their alfresco dining is very comfortable, plenty of space for diners, foot traffic and road traffic.

About This Blog

is about discovering what I find pleasing in screening & eating - in case you missed it, the name is a play on Tinseltown using the Tines of a Fork.

Feel free to send me info on a film or new restaurant you'd like me to highlight.

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
