I was seven years old sitting in a dark theater as the words “A long time ago in a galaxy far away” slid up the screen in yellow and hearing a sound unlike any I’d ever heard before, laser fire in space. With wide-eyed enthusiasm I watched the story unfold and was introduced to a wide assortment of epic characters who would forever be a part of movie and Hollywood history. While this was much like a western, it was a western set in outer space! How cool was that.
In the years since I’ve seen Star Wars over 400 times, (yes I didn’t get laid much) to the point where I knew every line in the film, every character, everything there was to know about Star Wars I knew, or at least thought I knew. Continue Reading
If you’re following us on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook you’ll know that this week we had the fortune of hanging out with some of great friends and bloggers for dinner, the Jimmy Kimmel Live show and a concert on Hollywood Blvd. by rock icon Sir Paul McCartney. The event was sponsored by the fine folks at Guinness who also hosted us for dinner and let me tell you, I’m working real hard to get the recipe for the Guinness Shake I enjoyed at dinner.
There is quite a bit more after the jump. Continue Reading
It’s time to celebrate and time to mourn. It is the end of an era. An era filled with drama, madness and meth. Yes, we are talking about the final episode of “Breaking Bad.” And as we sit here anxiously awaiting Sunday night’s bittersweet finale, The Savory felt it was only right to head to our own “lab” and cook up some legal delicacies to enjoy: The Pontiac Aztec Cocktail, Hoisin Heisenbergers, and Marie’s Purple Slaw.
Walter White’s now famous mode of transport is forever burned in our minds, with and without windshield intact. “Breaking Bad” creator, Vince Gilligan, had the memorable green color custom made, and no other Aztek can be found in that color. The Savory bartender, Pete Capella, did his best to pay homage to that color, along with Continue Reading
GQ is proud to announce the first-ever Gentlemen Give Back concert with Robin Thicke on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, at the High Line Ballroom in New York City. The evening will feature a special performance by the award-winning multiplatinum artist, as well as a set by DJ Ruckus.
The exclusive engagement benefits the charity organizations supported by GQ’s 2013 Gentlemen’s Fund: Oceana, Doctors Without Borders, Art of Elysium, and Recycle Across America. The Gentlemen’s Fund initiative raises awareness for issues that are essential to modern men and supports charities that champion these causes. Since 2007, The Gentlemen’s Fund has raised over $3.5 million for nearly 40 charities.
Known for chart-topping songs such as Blurred Lines, Lost Without U, and Give It 2 U, Thicke is an R&B powerhouse and the ultimate entertainer. His exclusive performance at the Gentlemen Give Back concert is his final appearance in New York City this year.
“I’m excited to be working with GQ again, a publication that has supported me from the beginning, and to be performing at the first-ever Gentlemen Give Back concert,” Thicke said. “It’s going to be an evening to remember, benefiting a tremendous cause, so I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
Tickets to this exclusive, one-night-only concert are on sale at www.highlineballroom.com/gq. Prices start at $100.
Hot Tub Cinema is an experience like no other. Combining relaxing hot tubs, great films and amazing spaces, it is a luxurious event that celebrates film in a fun and engaging way. Attendees can purchase whole tubs to share with friends or buy individual tickets to share with fellow hot tubbers. The tubs are cleaned, refilled and heated before every show.
Popping-up throughout the year in London and around the UK, Hot Tub Cinema is also preparing to tour internationally in the near future. During the summer, we takeover rooftops in central London with astounding views across the city’s inimitable skyline. For the autumn/winter we move indoors to continue the fun hidden away from the unpredictable weather.
Summer 2013 marks Hot Tub Cinema’s first official birthday. Evolving from a private party with one hot tub seven years ago, the first public rooftop screening was on 7th July 2012. Since then the event has grown to include up to 20 hot tubs, two screens and a bespoke surround-sound system, creating a totally unique and fully immersive cinema experience.
