 ENTER TO WIN A RENZELL DINING EXPERIENCE

via TINSEL & TINE

By Le Anne Lindsay, Editor

POST UPDATE 3/11/17

Original Post:

This one's for my Foodie Subscribers,

WHAT IS RENZELL? - The best way for me to describe Renzell is a cross between the Zagat's Guide and Michelin Stars only the ratings are created by the members who fill out a survey sometime shortly after a dining experience. Renzell then takes all the surveys and calculates them to create more detailed ratings based on (Design, Food, Cocktails, Service, Vibe, Value) than you may find on Yelp, Open Table, Zomato or even Tinsel & Tine ;)

WHO ARE THE MEMBERS? - Anyone can be a member and it's FREE to Join. You just have to be someone interested enough in dining out that you'd be willing to give your opinion to Renzell on your experience, in order to earn points.


WHAT DO THE POINTS GET YOU? Every month Renzell holds a special tasting at a Philadelphia upscale restaurant for members who have earned enough points to attend. It becomes both an exclusive invitation and a reward!

WHAT IS TINSEL & TINE GIVING AWAY? as usual, free promotion :) In fact, the above breakdown is my own wording and I think I did a pretty good job with the FAQ, And guess what? I'm not even invited to the first event in Philly :( HOWEVER, I'm happy to feature Renzell this month because I do think it sounds like a fun, foodie kinda club to join! And it's great that Philadelphia is one of the 11 cities chosen for their roll out, and because T&T is about highlighting interesting stuff about film/movies, food/dining and Philly for my readers, subscribers and followers... and I do think Renzell's mission to create the most accurate, objective restaurant ratings in the world is interesting.


OK, WHAT'S TINSEL & TINE REALLY GIVING AWAY?
Your Attendance at the First Philly Renzell Private Tasting at Aldine (1901 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19103)
Date: Sunday, March 5, 2017
Time: 7:00pm

Details: The Winner (2 tickets) will enjoy a multi-course tasting to join Renzell Members as they celebrate their launch in Philadelphia. Private Tastings include a pre-dinner cocktail, a tasting menu with wine pairings, coffee or tea, and water. (Additional food or drink can be purchased at your own expense).

Aldine Cuisine: American - a bit brooding and industrial, Aldine sits on the second floor of a walk-up, affording it some nice views of the surrounding neighborhood. Hipsters and non-hipsters alike will be inspired by the elevated and complex seasonal small plates—many of them vegan or gluten-free—that they enjoy to a soundtrack lifted straight from the 90s.

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE

Food n Film: THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY

...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST

In this 2007 film, Keri Russell stars as Jenna - a desolate diner waitress seeking solace in the art of pie-making. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she’s eager to escape her husband and her small-town hell and sets about to make a run for it by entering an out of town pie baking contest. READ POST

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?
