When I was offered passes to the advance screening of Salmon Fishing In The Yemen to give away on my blog, my head was spinning with clever ways to combine it with a food post. Salmon came to mind first (duh)… but alas the only salmon in the house today was of the canned variety, which I learned when I opened it, is not fit for human consumption… ew.
Okay, scrap salmon.
Movies = Popcorn!
I was going to try making some Middle Eastern inspired popcorn by popping some corn, drizzling it with a fragrant olive oil and tossing it with some Za’atar, a blend of dried herbs, dried sumac, sesame seeds and other spices… but then I couldn’t get a hold of any in time.
I took that as a sign to just post the darn giveaway and move on to other recipe ideas before the advance screening has come and gone.
Alliance Films has provided me with 9 double passes (okay, 10, but I really want to see this one) to giveaway for the advance screening of Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, staring Ewan McGregor (swoon), Emily Blunt and Kristin Scott Thomas. It fits in the genre of comedy/drama/romance… hey I like all those things. I hadn’t heard of this film, so when I saw the title I was kind of afraid it was some sort of Eco-documentary, but far from it. If you are able to attend the advance screening on Wednesday, March 21 (2012 of course) at 7:30PM at the Empire Theatres in Bayers Lake, and would love a double pass for free… enter below! The contest will close Sunday at 12:01AM EST and I will contact the winners via email on Sunday.
