Staff Pick: “Pulp Fiction” beer tasting

By Columbus Alive
From the September 5, 2013 edition

Do you like beer? Do you like “Pulp Fiction”? If you answered no to either of those questions, then I don’t think we can be friends.

The rest of you, listen up, because the Gateway Film Center is screening Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 adrenaline blast with an accompanying beer tasting.

For $15, you can sample some of the Gateway’s beer offerings and practice quoting lines from the movie. Here are some of my favorites: (edited, of course)

• “English, motherf---er, do you speak it?”

• “I do believe Marsellus Wallace, my husband, your boss, told you to take me out and do whatever I wanted. Now I wanna dance, I wanna win. I want that trophy, so dance good.”

• “I love you, Pumpkin.”

“I love you, Honey Bunny.”

• “'Garçon' means boy.”

• “Bacon tastes gooood. Pork chops taste gooood.”

• “It's the one that says Bad Motherf---er.”

Note: Previous tasting-film pairings have sold out, so you might want to procure tickets via a link on the Gateway website in advance.
