Tinsel & Tine (Reel & Dine) The name is a take off of Tinseltown, using the tines of a fork. We're about discovering & covering what’s pleasing in Film, Food & Philly Events. Posts weave personal anecdotes, observations and pop-culture into movie reviews, interviews and film festival coverage. We do tasty “Tine rated” restaurant reviews, feature food industry folks and events, and whenever possible, highlight the simpatico of food in film!
You may notice that my upbeat writing style is most often geared towards film promotion rather than dissecting a movie. I enjoy highlighting and showcasing, while still interjecting my own truth, aesthetic and humor. My posts include links, excerpts, videos and interviews from other blogs and entertainment publications, in an effort to help promote both the movie and fellow writer's work. Same holds true for foodie posts, however T & T tends to be a main course of the film industry and a side dish of the food industry.
Why did I start Tinsel & Tine? Because I fell in love with the blogging medium and asked myself what do I love enough to write about all the time?
The Answer: I always feel like a kid at the movies! It never gets old for me. I also really understand and appreciate good storytelling; yet oddly, I was never what most would call a film buff - still am not, however, I've learned a lot about the industry since starting the blog. My other passion is good food, just love to eat! I don't cook a lot (any more), but there's nothing better than getting a good table at a cozy restaurant and settling in for a nice long meal. I'm also obsessed with good cake! And thus began Tinsel & Tine: Reel & Dine.
Comments: I've disabled the comment boxes for several reasons; but that doesn't mean that I dislike feedback. I would love to hear from my readers via social media - links to all of Tinsel & Tine's platforms are easily found below and on the home page in the header
About Me Personally: I'd describe myself as being a person of integrity and discernment. But I'm also easy-going, and try to make those around me feel at ease. That is until I'm pushed passed my limit then I become brutally honest, which surprisingly affects people more than any other retaliation.
I grew up watching a lot of romantic old movies. My favorite being Rebecca. And a lot of movie musicals, my favorite being Gigi. Happiness for me is beautiful surroundings, glamour, charm, sophistication, relaxation, mysticism, good cigars, good food & drink, good friends, fashion including my life long quest for a walk-in closet - well, more than a closet, a wardrobe room/oasis, the beach and shooting craps!
I'm single, no kids, no pets and still believe in finding love.

There's an interesting quiz you can take that matches you with an animal with similar instincts - http://instinctthebook.com
I'm an ELEPHANT. Slow and steady, elephants are planners who take their time and persevere to reach large goals over time. They’re often solid, substantive, and determined. They don’t like being rushed but can surprise others with how quickly they respond when circumstances require it. Elephants usually enjoy laid-back, relaxed environments with small groups of friends & family.
