Le Bec Fin Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Thursday, July 1, 2010

I do try to read blogs, feeds, tweets etc... about food and film happenings in Philly, but something inevitably gets by me, so it was a stroke of luck that I happened upon the sidewalk celebration taking place at Le Bec Fin (1523 Walnut Street). Chef George Perrier and his entire staff were joyously celebrating the landmark restaurant's 40th Anniversary. There was banging of pots and pans, clapping, and best of all, elegant bite-sized morsels of deliciousness were being served on silver platters. Perrier himself was wielding a saber as a bottle opener, popping open the celebratory bottle of champagne with a flair!

Suddenly I remembered I was carrying my new Tinsel & Tine Messenger Bag, and inside was my camera and digital voice recorder. So I was able to snap these couple of pics and ask the chef for a blog comment. Click on the WMA file below to listen.

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?
