Food and Film

The 2nd Annual NYC Food Film Festival starts tomorrow at Water Taxi Beach in Long Island City with a celebration of the Philly Cheesesteak.

SPOILER ALERT: the above 3-minute film will be shown.

(Which, speaking of spoiling, this film has spoiled my assertion, which I've been throwing around for years, based on the eyewitness account of a friend of mine, that crappy ice cream bars from ice trucks don't melt. They hold their shape, even if you leave them out on the counter overnight, as my friend did, presumably because they are more filled with crap than with frozen cream. Amy? If you read this? Are you positive it didn't melt?)

Check out the festival's trailer here. It looks very cool.

Tuesday night the festival moves to DUMBO, and shows some pizza films in the parking lot next to Grimaldi's.
