Bar Food Blowout
If you missed the first one, here’s your chance to get in on the action at the Bar Food Blowout. Chef Talde teams up with his buddy (anyone making pies like Justin is our buddy too!) to bring you a bar food menu including Pork Sausage Sliders, “Mozzarella Stix” and Molten Mushroom Fondue Log on top of Speedy Romeo Celery Giardiniera. Are you drooling yet? Good. Wash this down with a “Slippery Slope” beer-and-shot combo of Brooklyn Brewery beer and Powers Whiskey. An evening this good must be accompanied by music, so jam to tunes by DJ Sinkane.

This week, BAMcinématek helps you get your Scorsese fix by pairing six of his films with the classics made by one of his greatest inspirations at Under the Influence: Scorsese/ Walsh.

Watch the work of these two legends back to back.
