Countdown to the holidays with Film & Food

Have you ever read this children’s book? My nearly 14-yr old loved it when she was small. It even came with a little stuffed snowman.

 

Here’s David Bowie, of all people, introducing Raymond BriggsThe Snowman.

I grew up in the ’80s so this is the sort of thing we saw on television around numberswiki.com

this time of year.

 

I love George C. “Patton” Scott.  He was in a lot of my favorites from this era: The Changeling, Taps, Oliver Twist…The man was busy!

 

 

You know how sometimes a local restaurant or watering hole will be popular but still not very good? Locals flock there because they always have, even when the food or drink doesn’t warrant the attention.  I was curious whether this was true about Frontier Restaurant.  It’s location across from UNM‘s main campus also gave me pause because, well, students will eat most anything if it’s reasonably priced and convenient.

But, no! The food is actually tasty! Check out what our late-night group feasted upon:

Nob Hill has a surplus of restaurants, it’s true. But I have a soft spot for Slice Parlor.  You can grab a slice and walk across the street to The Guild, find a comfy seat and enjoy your pizza and movie.

Local craft beers? Check. Delicious NY-style pizza? Check. We Are Local sign? Check!

Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer” is a Rankin and Bass Christmas classic.

 

Yukon Cornelius was always my favorite. I remember watching this on television growing up. Yes, I’m *that* old.

 

Note: FOURTH link I’ve posted…hope this one lasts! Some Scrooge doesn’t want you to see Rudolph!
