LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) PODCAST SERIES

LGB BLACK

LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) is the craft beer and movie podcast series with salty film critic Cole Smithey.

For its first 100 episodes, Millennial filmmaker Mike Lacy was Cole's co-host. Now the podcast is recorded live at BLIND TIGER ALE HOUSE (located at Bleeker and Jones in the West Village) with a rotating list of entertaining co-hosts to copiously consume international politics and culture through the prism of a single film and a different craft beer.

Naturally, Cole and his guest pick a beer from the Tiger's always-impressive board, that seems to go best with each film based on whatever arcane association might catch our eye.

KILLING THEM SOFTLY — MARTIN KELLER

LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) is recorded live at Blind Tiger Ale House (New York City's best rated craft beer bar — located at the corner of Bleeker and Jones in the West Village) where we judiciously choose a beer from the Tiger's generous board that we think most appropriate for our film of choice. 

New York City cinephile Martin Keller returns for a follow-up to our Andrew Dominic's companion-piece film duo "THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD" and "KILLING THEM SOFLTY." 

Inspired be the Tiger's hearty board of beer choices, we went with Tired Hands Brewing's SEVERE HEAD WOUND — their "pink, goopy, double IPA." Poor Ray Liotta.

THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD — MARTIN KELLER

After a six-month hiatus, LA GRANDE BOUFFE (THE BIG FEAST) 3.0 arrives with a new format. Each new episode is 30 minutes long and recorded live at Blind Tiger Ale House (New York City's best rated craft beer bar — located at the corner of Bleeker and Jones in the West Village) where we judiciously choose a beer from the Tiger's generous board that we think most appropriate for our film of choice. 

New York City cinephile Martin Keller joins me at the Tiger to discuss Andrew Dominic's postmodern Western "THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD." We're drinking Maduro Brown Ale from Cigar City Brewing for the occasion; that's number 11 on the Blind Tiger board!
