Bottle of rosé and a bowl of ramen! Downtown Dayton restaurant hosting special ‘popup’ nights

Prepare to slurp and sip.

A downtown restaurant is offering customers a little R and R.

Table 33, 130 W. Second St. in downtown Dayton, recently launched its new Thursday “popup dinner” night series with Rosé and Ramen. The next event takes place Thursday, Oct. 18.

“We wanted to give people something different and something new,”  Table 33 general manager Sam DeLong told this news organization. 

For $25, diners will receive a bottle of rosé  wine and a bowl of vegan, beef, chicken or pork ramen.

The cost is $13 for only a bowl of ramen with no rosé.

The ramen broth will be made in-house with local produce, grass-fed beef bones, and/or free-range chicken or pork. 

DeLong said the restaurant will feature rosé paired with ramen from 5 to 10 p.m. Thursday nights for at least two months.

Table 33 chef Desmond Keane said he fell in love with ramen while teaching English in South Korea. 

He ate it nearly daily and said it conjures up great memories in his mind of the women who served it to him and of the aunts and moms who taught him to prepare Korean delights.

“The food I put on my menu, it is literally an interpretation of my travels,” said Keane, a Filipino and Irish American born in St. Petersburg, Florida. “It’s not just Asian food. It is food from Florida.”

Keane said tastes of Florida from Cuban sandwiches made with Cuban bread from Evan’s Bakery to smoked fish finds its way to the menu. 

“People know it because they vacation in Florida,” he said. “All of the food I make has a memory.”

Want to watch back-to-back horror movies all weekend? Here’s where

 

The horror movie marathon event Horrorama has become a Dayton Halloween tradition. This year, organizers have really outdone themselves and are showing 12 high-quality horror films over two days in what is sure to be one of the coolest things to do this October! Here are Dayton.com’s picks of some of the most exciting movies playing at Horrorama this weekend. 

>> Best Halloween events for grown-ups

 

Popcorn 

Popcorn is part of a 1990s tradition of horror movies that demonstrate a post-modernist self awareness that had never before been reflected in the genre. While searching an old trunk, college student Maggie Butler sumbles upon an old slasher flick that turns out to be terrifyingly similar to her own recurring nightmare. 

>> Best haunted attractions in Dayton

 

The Lost Boys 

The Lost Boys is the quintessential 1980s vampire film. It has it all: big ‘80s stars, a big ‘80s anthem for a theme song, and big ‘80s hair. The movie co-stars three of the era’s greatest heartthrobs: Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, and Kiefer Sutherland. While on the surface The Lost Boys is a creepy horror romp, at its core it’s a coming-of-age film about the importance of finding oneself amidst the competing noise of peer pressure and teenage drama. 

>> 7 of Dayton’s most haunted spots

 

 

Dead Alive 

Most people know director Peter Jackson from the “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” trilogies. However, his 1992 slapstick horror masterpiece “Dead Alive” is just as worthy of praise as his high-profile blockbusters. Originally released as “Braindead” in Jackson’s native New Zealand, “Dead Alive” was lauded by critics as “the goriest film of all time.” Like all great scary movies, this zombie flick combines horror with comedy and scathing social commentary. “Dead Alive” doesn’t get screened on the big screen all that often, so you’ll want to get your seat for Friday’s showing at Horrorama Dayton right away! 

 

 

The Wolf Man 

The Wolf Man is one of the finest specimens in Universal Studios’ classic monsters stable and featured Lon Chaney, Jr. in the role that made him a horror movie star. While home for a funeral, Larry Talbot gets bitten by a wolf while trying to impress a girl. SPOILER ALERT: He becomes a werewolf.

Bring the kids Saturday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. for the PG-rated Universal Monster Marathon. 

 

 

Freddy vs. Jason 

What do you get when you put the two most important slasher movie icons in the same film? You get exactly what you would expect, of course! “Freddy vs. Jason” was one of the most anticipated showdowns in horror movie history, with each contender having millions of fans in his corner. There’s plenty of violence and gore to go around, and even a little bit of a plot, involving some unfortunate circumstances at a rave that takes place in a cornfield. But it’s probably best not to worry too much about the storyline, and just enjoy your popcorn while you watch these two horror titans kick the crap out of each other. 

 

 

From Dusk Til Dawn 

George Clooney and Quintin Terrantino star in this south-of-the-border vampire movie directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by Terrantino. The Titty Twister is a rough bar, no doubt, but things really get nutty when the sun goes down. “From Dusk Til Dawn” oozes a Mexican-gothic vibe and has garnered a cult following that earned it two direct-to-video sequels and a television series.  

 

WANT TO GO? 

What: Horrorama Weekend 

Where: Danbarry Huber Heights, 7650 Waynetowne Blvd, Huber Heights 

When: Horrorama Friday Night Frights, October 12, 7 p.m. - 2 a.m.  Monster Matinee, Saturday, October 13, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. (2 kids free with adult admission). All-Night Halloween Party, Saturday, October 13, 6 p.m.- 4 a.m.

Now Los Angeles residents, the Barinholtz brothers were raised in Chicago. They have spent many summers and Christmas breaks at their grandparents’ farm near Cederville, Alan said. 

“The guys have local roots in the respect that their grandparents (Monroe and Catherine Pyles) lived here and my wife (Peggy Barinholtz) lived here until we moved to Chicago,” Alan said.

Jon has had roles in “Agent Carter” and “Dumb and Dumber To.” 

Alan and Peggy have owned the family farm for about 22 years and started working on it about nine years ago, spending every other weekend here. 

Alan said he kept the promise to his wife to move to the farm permanently in July. 

Several of Peggy’s family members live in the area and will likely attend the Yellow Springs event, Alan said.

“The transition from Chicago to the country is fun,” the attorney and former stand-up comedian said. 

The Chicago native said he loves hearing birds chirping instead of traffic.
