Phish Announces Dick’s Labor Day Weekend For ‘Dinner And A Movie’
Phish announced a three-day event for the next Dinner And A Movie to mark their annual Labor Day Weekend at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado. The band will air classic shows from the lauded run Friday – Sunday, September 4 – 6.
The online event will kick off on Friday with Phish’s September 1, 2017 concert. Saturday will get underway with September 1, 2012. Sunday will celebrate the five year anniversary of the famed “Thank You” show from September 6, 2015.
The Vermont quartet has a great Dinner planned. Read the statement below:
For the dinner component of this Dicks-pectacular, we’ll be offering recipes each night from some of the best chefs in the country. Beyond being known for their incredible talent and innovation, these three chefs have something else in common: they’re all Phish fans. On Friday, Mark Welker and Mike Pyers (the executive pastry chef and culinary director at Eleven Madison Park, respectively) bring us “The Wedge” salad, a red pepper pan pizza and a spiced zucchini cake. On Saturday, Doug Rankin (chef and owner of Los Angeles’ Bar Restaurant) offers up a mizuna salad with a (shake your) coconut dressing, grilled eggplant, and a mango clafoutis. And for the Sunday finale, Chef Molly Nickerson (executive chef at Marea) provides a recipe for a whole grilled fish (with a grilled portobello mushroom as a veg alternative) with pan roasted fingerling potatoes, burrata salad with grilled romano beans, and bicerin (chocolate pudding with whipped cream).
The beneficiary for the webcast is The Mockingbird Foundation. Check it out via Phish.com below:
