BREAKING AWAY Feast at Arthouse - MS150 Fundraiser

MS 150 Fundraiser: BREAKING AWAY Feast
Weds, May 9 at Arthouse

For the past three years, Alamo founder and CEO Tim League has participated in the BP MS 150 marathon bike ride from Houston to Austin.  The two-day event is organized by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to raise awareness and funding in the battle against MS.   This year, we’ve enlisted a team of 15 intrepid Alamo employees to participate in the ride, and Team Alamo wants YOU to help us meet our fundraising goal!*

Join us on Wednesday May 9th for an outdoor screening of BREAKING AWAY – the grand-daddy of all cycling films - and a new signature feast prepared by Alamo Executive Chef John Bullington.

Presented on the rooftop of the magnificent AMOA/Arthouse facility at the Jones Center, the evening will begin with a cocktail reception, sponsored by Bulleit Bourbon, featuring a signature recipe from Alamo Drafthouse Beverage Director Bill Norris.  Following the reception, our guests will be treated to a five-course meal with wine pairings courtesy of Team Alamo sponsors US Foods and Glazers.  The menu is appropriately themed to mirror the journey of BREAKING AWAY’s main character, who masquerades as an Italian youth in order to realize his competitive cycling dreams:

Foccacia with truffle oil, fresh baby artichokes, pine nuts, parmesan.  Paired with LaMarca Prosecco.

 Fennel caviar, cippoline onions, julienne charred chicory, yellow pepper, ricotta, moscato vinaigrette.  Paired with Stellina di Notte Pinot Grigio.

 Porcini stuffed squid braised in white wine and smoked tomatoes on linguini.  Paired with Arancio Dalila Grillo-Viognier.

 Rosemary smoked beef tenderloin with marsala reduction, polenta fritte, zucchini gratin.  Paired with Mezzacorona Teroldego Riserva

 Pear tart tatin, cinnamon mousse.  Paired with Castello Del Poggio Moscato D’Asti.

Cocktails and an appetizer will be served from 7pm until sunset, when the screening and feast will commence.  AMOA/Arthouse is located at 700 W. Congress Avenue, at the intersection of Congress and 7th Street.  Valet services will be available.

Unable to attend the screening?  Don’t despair - there are plenty of other ways to support this great cause!   You can also donate to Team Alamo at a variety of different levels for a chance to win some amazing prizes including a VIP Fantastic Fest Badge, Mondo BACK TO THE FUTURE Poster Set, A Night at the Alamo, and a Custom Team Alamo Biking Jersey.

*Even though the MS 150 was this past weekend we still have until May 20th to meet our full fundraising goal!!
