I am a firm believer in shaking things up and doing things out of the ordinary to break the monotony of the work week. So when I heard about a special movie premiere happening on a Tuesday night, it sounded like the perfect mid-week date night to me!
It’s quite rare that I walk out of a movie theater feeling inspired and ready to make changes in my life, but that is exactly how I felt after viewing the movie Chef.
Taste of Atlanta and Cinebistro at Town Brookhaven teamed up for the Atlanta premiere of the movie to raise money to benefit Chef, Terry Hall’s “Legacy Lives On Fund”. Hall, the late owner of Happy Belly Food Truck, passed away on February 11, 2014. His fund was established to ensure that his two children would receive a college education.
Chef is about a man’s who’s career and private life have stalled. As he loses everything he finds that family, loyal friends and fearlessly following one’s passion are the keys to success. The all-star cast featuring Jon Favreau, Sofia Vergara & John Leguizamo make the movie come alive.
As a foodie, I would be reminisce if I didn’t mention that one of the biggest stars in the movie is the amazing food. From Cuban sandwiches to beignets, the movie left me hungry for more. Good thing I was at Cinebistro and could order great drinks and amazing food. I especially enjoyed the beef sliders which were cooked perfectly.
Check out Chef in theaters now and follow Taste of Atlanta for more exciting events to come!
