My little brother lives in Washington DC and thankfully comes back to Utah for Christmas each year. Usually a few days before Christmas, he and I go out to wrap up our shopping, get a bite to eat and catch a movie. Each year, the time we spend on the movie and lunch increases and the time for shopping decreases. We are hyper-efficient at shopping; meaning we don’t enjoy it much so we get it over with quickly.
This year, our main desire was to see the movie “Moneyball.” I couldn’t find it in the regular theaters or dollar shows. Ultimately I found it playing at Brewvies. Having seen “Dan in Real Life” here with Rachel back in 2008, I thought that it would be worth trying again.
It’s quite the arrangement. You walk in and order your food at the same time as your movie ticket. They have a decent selection of appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, salads, and desserts. You’re handed your order number, and go into the theater. When your food is ready, a light in the theater illuminates and you pick up your platter.
I ordered the Creole Burger. Makes your mouth water just reading it. It’s topped with jalapenos, cheddar cheese, red onions, lettuce, Cajun spice and their own chili mayo. I took a class on Cajun food and love making gumbo and jambalaya. It’s great food with a kick. I had sweet potato fries on the side. They were cooked to perfection and dipped in the Cajun spice.
My Brother ordered the Black N Bleu Burger. He said it was good but a little dry. I had no such complaint. Mine was delicious and plentiful. The meat was tender and the Cajun craver in me has me wanting more.
You can get a movie ticket, soda, burger and fries before 4:30pm for $11.00. What a deal. The movie was also great. If your downtown, there is no better way to spend an afternoon.
Happy Eating and Merry Christmas.
