SUE SUE'S TCM FESTIVAL TRAVEL BLOG...

No hot dogs at In-N-Out, but we could always shift locations to Pink's.

 

5487109504_db3eb1d503_z.jpg

 

For those of you who don't know, even though it may not look like much, Pink's is a well-known stop in Hollywood. They never close and whenever you drive by there is always a line of people (Pink's claims they have never been without a customer no matter what time of day or night it is). And if you eat there, it is likely you will not leave hungry.

 

But I still like In-N-Out better for fast food. By the way, I think it was in this month's Budget Travel magazine, but one travel expert said that across the country L.A. wins the battle for best burgers and that In N Out is the place to go.

 

And speaking of Budget Travel, I was just looking online and found this from 2010, I think that had helpful advice extra menu items that I didn't know about at In-N-Out (they are talking about an SF location, but sure it is true about others):

 

In-N-Out, a major West Coast fast-food institution with a cultlike following, is well worth a stop during a visit to San Francisco. The burger chain has gotten a lot of good press lately: chef Thomas Keller has called In-N-Out one of his favorite restaurants and just celebrated his upscale restaurant's anniversary with a tasty burger and fries. And Eric Schlosser, celebrated author of Fast Food Nation says it's the only fast food he eats.

 

That's probably because In-N-Out is a very "PC" fast-food joint: burgers are made with 100 percent pure beef, free of additives and preservatives; potatoes are freshly peeled each day; there's real ice cream in the shakes; the company is family owned; and employees have high pay with full benefits.

 

For new visitors to In-N-Out, the menu is seemingly simple: double or single cheeseburgers and hamburgers, fries, and shakes. But if you want to sound like a local, order off the "secret menu," which offers add-ons like grilled onions and extra patties. A few of my favorite items:

 

Animal style: A mustard-cooked patty (In-N-Out's secret!) with grilled onion, a pickle, and extra "special sauce" (i.e. ketchup and mayo). Perhaps the most popular option of all.

 

Animal-style fries: Cheese fries with grilled onions and special sauce.

 

Protein style: A burger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun. Ideal for those watching their carb intake.

 

Grilled Cheese (a.k.a Wish Burger): For vegetarians, a cheese hamburger, minus the burger?but it comes with all the other toppings.

 

The Flying Dutchman: Two patties and two slices of cheese with no bun. This one comes condiment free, unless you make a request.

 

3-by-3 or 4-by-4: When a double-double burger just isn't enough, add more patties and cheese.

 

2-by-4: Extra cheese, i.e., a double cheeseburger with four slices of American.

 

Around-the-World shake: A combination of vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate ice cream swirled together.

 

Neapolitan shake: The three flavors, but side by side and unmixed.

 

In-N-Out will accommodate other special requests as well: Ask for chopped jalapenos, no salt, just mustard or just ketchup, or even specify how well-toasted you want your bun. Fries can also be ordered "well-done" for extra crisp or "lite," for slightly undercooked.

I spent 1 hour 20 in line at Pink's last year. If I could figure out how to post photos like you whiz kids out there, I'd show you the results.

I am so excited by the announcement on the website about upcoming festival highlights.

 

Kyle posted this link in another Festival Forum thread, but I'm encouraging everyone who hasn't seen the scheduled events to follow this link, too! http://www.tcm.com/festival/#/home/index

 

My mailbox should be open by now, BTW... :)

Also, the festival website has the most current news. I can't wait to find out about all the films that have been finally selected and if any more "celeb" guests and presenters are scheduled!

Incidentally, if any of you are visiting the Road To Hollywood event in Austin, Texas, on April 16, I might see you there! Ben Mankiewicz in visiting with Angie Dickinson prior to *RIO BRAVO*!

It's almost time to start my annual reports! Wonder who else will be out there with me? :)

I'm voting for either Skoobys Hot Dogs (it's on Hollywood Boulevard pretty close to The Egyptian) or Cantor's Deli for a fan meetup that involves food. Better food at both,

 

I was happily munching Skoobys fries & drinking their terrific lemonade while watching Tony Curtis chat about Sweet Smell Of Success last year.

 

Cantors is a detour from the main drag of TCMFF but it's not far and the food is to die for.

Dear Wolfie and Darryl,

 

Thanks for the updates! As for Chris Isaak, Ooh-la-la, as Leslie Caron might say!

Kyle knows I just adore a poolside bash! :)

 

Muriel Hemingway is also introducing one of her films...

 

*Manhattan (1979) - Introduced by Mariel Hemingway*

*Woody Allen?s slice-of-life valentine to New York features the actor-director-writer alongside Diane Keaton, Michael Murphy, Meryl Streep and Oscar nominee Mariel Hemingway. The gorgeous black-and-white photography is provided by Gordon Willis, all set to a collection of memorable Gershwin tunes*

 

I've been scrolling through all the press releases from TCM, and I can't find Mary Ann Mobley or Chris Isaak officially listed . Sorry about that.

 

*Girl Happy (1965) ? Poolside screening at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel*

*Elvis Presley?s last big blockbuster features the King of Rock ?n? Roll as a singer assigned to keep an eye on a young woman during Spring Break in Ft. Lauderdale. Shelley Fabares co-stars, along with Harold Stone and Gary Crosby. The soundtrack album, featuring the title song, along with ?Spring Fever,? ?Do the Clam? and ?You?ll Be Gone,? climbed to #8 on the charts. This special screening will take place poolside at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, the host hotel for the TCM Classic Film Festival.I'll keep my fingers crossed. My eyes are already there with all these fantastic stars, films, professional historians and directors....*

 

I can't wait until the final schedule is posted. I hope it's today!
