This time of year, we treat catching flicks like it’s our day job. Otherwise, we’ll feel totally lost at our Oscar-viewing party, and we don’t need to tell you how serious that is. This year, there are nine nominated films, including the beloved musical Les Misérables and Quentin Tarantino’s dark and funny Django Unchained. And naturally, we’re on a mission to see them all. Of course, all this movie watching is going to work up an appetite, so we’re already planning the spots we’ll head to for a little post-flick nibble.
Should you care to follow us on our path to Oscar gold, here’s our suggested dinner-and-a-movie itinerary to knock out before the ceremony’s broadcast on February 24. Click through to feast your eyes, and then tell us: What’s your vote for best movie-and-dinner pairing?
