The best dinner and a movie pairing this year had to be the Alamo's first anniversary celebration. Owners Tim and Karrie League presented Alfonso Arau's romantic film Like Water for Chocolate paired with a dinner based on recipes taken from the novel that inspired the movie. The dining audience was served the delicate quails in rose sauce just as the incendiary scene in which they were featured flickered across the screen. Quite an impressive accomplishment.
