Kubrick: A Dinner in 5 Parts at the Sound Table: Monday, October 15, 2012

Here's what you do Monday, October 15, 2012

Here's Johnny!!  Sound Table is hosting Kubrick: A dinner in 5 Parts on Monday Night.  It's a dinner with five courses that are interpretations of 5 of Kubrick's films.
Honestly, Sound Table's Kubrick dinner sounds just awesome!  Whoever the idea guy/gal is over at Sound Table needs a pat on the back.  Check it out:
"Kubrick: A Dinner in 5 Parts
Stanley Kubrick. Brilliant Rogue. Prescient Auteur. Singular Genius. A Worthy Subject for a Dinner
We’ve chosen 5 films from Kubrick’s revolutionary oeuvre (LolitaThe ShiningA Clockwork Orange2001: A Space Odyssey Full Metal Jacket) as the basis for this themed dinner. Chef Joey Zelinka will be serving his culinary interpretations of each of these films, paired with cocktails designed by bar manager Navarro Carr. 
Monday, October 15 | 7 o’clock | $60 (includes cocktail pairings) | book seats here. We welcome you to join us in exploring and celebrating the mind of a master. More information at"
One word.  Go!

Here's What You Do does a new day plan every day.  Like us on Facebook below to get updates on your Facebook page.

Here's what you do Monday

First:  We always recommend a slow start to a Monday.  Settle into the week.  It's a good idea.  The other day, I made an oxtail omelet.  It. Was. Amazing.  Oxtails braised for 5 hours with carrots and potatoes and a smooth gravy.  Carved up into tiny pieces.  Then added to Julia Child-inspired omelet of cage free brown eggs and heavy whipping cream.  Just fabulous.  Have you ever made oxtail stew?  It's one of those slow cooked meals that fills your house with great aroma and let's you know that everything will be wonderful this winter.  Try out this recipe.  It'll be about $20 to make.  It's something you can do way ahead of time, or you could make Monday morning about making oxtail stew.  That'd be a great way to start out the week.

Oxtail stew is a slow cooked masterpiece, that just so happens to take your omelet up a whole bunch of notches.

Second:  Halloween approaches.   Go see what the South has to offer at ART Station's Lunch Time Series.  Check it out:
"Lunch Time at ART Station is a series that provides a monthly lunchtime option for locals that showcases an exciting performance, lecture, or art experience as well as a boxed lunch. This month the presentation is "A Tour of Southern Ghosts, a Sampler Plate," with storytellers offering a ghostly sampling of haunting tales."
Tickets are $10, plus $5 for lunch.  It's at 12-1p.

Third:  Siesta.  A little after lunch nap never hurt anyone...

Fourth:  How about a film to get you in the Kubrick Mood?  We just can't resist recommending Frankenweenie.  It's Tim Burton's latest, and it echoes Halloween stories from across time.  Check out this trailer:

It's on at Phipps at 4:10.  $10 per person.

Finally:  Kubrick, baby!  $60 per person plus $10 tip.

Carbon Footprint:

Today's full day plan can take up to about 45 miles of driving, if your home base is midtown Atlanta.  The 45 miles  equates to about 30 pounds of carbon dioxide, or the carbon sequestered by about 7 sq feet of forest.  Calculations are based on the U.S. EPA's green house gas equivalencies calculator.  

45 miles of driving
30 pounds of carbon dioxide
7 square feet of forest would be required to sequester this carbon.

Wonder why a gallon of gas (about 6 pounds) generates 20 pounds of green house gas?  Check out this article at
