I found out what the secret to life is: friends. Best friends.
This tuesday at the pier we bring you FRIED GREEN TOMATOES, a touching look at two generations of female friendship (and maybe a little something more…ahem). Based on the book FRIED GREEN TOMATOES AT THE WHISTLE STOP CAFE by Fannie Flag, the 1992 film stars Kathy Bates, Mary Stuart Masterson, Mary-Louse Parker, Cicely Tyson, Chris O’Donnell, and Jessica Tandy, who received a best supporting actress nomination for her performance as Ninny Threadgoode.
This week’s movie is brought to you by THE O’CONNELL ORGANIZATION and HOMETOWN BBQ. The good pitmasters at Hometown have come up with a special menu for the evening: smoked turkey and fried green tomato BLTs with siracha aioli, just $9–yum! And as always Steve’s Key Lime Pies will be open late selling their tarts, pies, and swingles; King Leche Cremes will be on hand with their handcrafted and super delicious goat’s milk ice cream bars in Red Velvet, Spiced Chocolate, and specially for this screening: Corn Bread! And our friends at Heba Deli will also be there selling a variety of beverages. So come hungry people, because we feed you well over at the pier!
