By now, the influence of Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction is so entrenched in the culture that even a proper 35mm screening of the film can feel like yesterday’s news. Leave it to the creative team at Williamsburg’s Nitehawk, then, to devise a fresh way to experience the film: In partnership with Absolut Vodka, this Film Feast event pairs Tarantino’s classic with a menu of food and drinks tailored precisely for the movie at hand. Featuring such items as “Jack Rabbit Slims” (Coke- and vanilla-marinated skirt steak) and “One Minute They’re Having a Denver Omelette,” the menu provides a delicious companion to the film itself — and, perhaps best of all, the vigilant Nitehawk staff has been primed to serve the individual meals and beverages at the precise moment they’re referenced on-screen.
