Alamo Drafthouse Cinema: Burgers, Beer and Bottomless Popcorn

September 2, 2015 4:46 pm

Bottomless popcorn makes for a dangerous snack for some at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, especially given that it's smothered in real butter! Most customers say the crunchy snack is well worth a caloric splurge at the movie theater—it's all part of the Alamo Drafthouse experience.

So bypass the light fixture in the lobby—maybe stop for a quick look, given that the fixture showcases three reincarnations of Rudolph's Abominable Snowman hanging upside down—and head straight to the concession stand. That's where you can grab soda, popcorn, candy, and your tickets for the show. You can also enjoy a libation from the bar (locals recommend the bloody Mary) and a full meal to enjoy during your film, perhaps a gourmet pizza or a patty melt. Once you have everything you need, grab a seat in one of the contemporary auditoriums and watch a first-run, indie, or family film with crystal-clear picture and sound.

How to Care for Your Kitchen Knives

August 26, 2015 5:20 pm

You use your kitchen knives almost every day, from slicing your morning banana to chopping vegetables for dinner at night. Because good knives can be expensive, you likely want to keep them in top working condition. Here are a few simple tips for properly caring for those important cooking knives.

  • Don’t let them soak. It may be tempting to simply toss your knives in with the rest of your soaking dishes, but avoid doing so. This can cause the knife to bend or get scratched, and it can also be dangerous if someone reaches their hand under the water.
  • Don’t run them through the dishwasher. Likewise, the dishwasher can also dent or ding your knives. Instead, wash them thoroughly by hand after every use.
  • Don’t store them in a silverware drawer. This is especially important for renters who might not have much extra space in the kitchen. Instead, invest in a small wooden knife block that you can keep on the counter, or at least use a knife sheath to keep the blade safe.
  • Keep them sharp. In order to get the best results from your knives, you need to sharpen them frequently. Use a honing steel or a knife stone if you’re comfortable doing it yourself, or if you’re not, you can always send them out to be sharpened by a professional.
