Tin Room Tales and Sunshine

Well another week has come and gone. There are hints of sunshine this morning and a forecast that promises a 70 degree day by the end of the week.  SEVENTY DEGREES!!!!!!!  Tropical paradise, right here in B-Town! People will be dancing in the streets. This crappy spring might just turn around after all. Yay! Of course the rain will be returning on Friday night just in time to ruin the weekend. Oh well, at this point we will take what we can get.
Last Friday was pretty nice here in Burien. I was lucky enough to get out of work early and Roger met me in town for some dinner at the Tin Room. The Tin Room is our usual hangout for a spur of the moment dinner or evening out.  The place has a great vibe and awesome food. Roger had Fish and Chips and I had a Chicken Pasta in Basil Cream Sauce. Yummy. Normally we always have the same thing. Grilled Meatloaf with Bourbon Mushroom gravy. It is the one time that I don't mind if Roger prefers someone else's cooking. It really is better than my meatloaf.   Check out their website here Great history to the place.
Super friendly staff and owner, Dan the Sausage Man. Right in the middle of Olde Burien, it is the Gaslamp Quarter of B-Town, The Tin Room is one of the most popular. What make this spot even more unique, is that there is also a theater on site. The Tin Theater is a small indie type theater that has a great ambience, plush padded seats, thick velvet drapes, stadium seating and, you wont believe it,...............A BAR!!!

How awesome is that.  The theater seats about 50 people and plays some great flicks. No kiddos allowed. We saw the film "The Way Back" a couple of weeks ago and I highly recommend it. I had never heard of this film with Ed Harris, Jim Sturgess and Colin Farrell. Great cast and superbly acted drama.
 Last week they showed the third greatest movie of all time: One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest!One Flew Over the Cuckoo's NestWhat an amazing cast. When you see this movie after a number of years, you will find yourself saying, I don't remember that _________ was in this movie.  Still relevant and highly entertaining.
The next up on the Tin Theater marquee, both versions of True Grit. They show films every evening at 7:30 for a modest ticket price of $8.00. Plenty of time for a great meal and cocktail before the show. If you speak to the bartender before you sit down, he will deliver your drinks to your seat at pre-arranged intervals.
