So far DIFF is two for two as far as after-parties go. Not just hits, but home runs. If I knew anything about baseball I would give you that batting average stat, but I know enough to know that’s good. Hit the jump to find out why.
The Reel FX party had all the right ingredients to celebrate the Texas premier of The Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best, the feature writing and directing debut for Ryan O’Nan, who also stars in the film. The space was perfect. Who would have thought the lobby of an office could be so cool. Yes, it isn’t your average office building but still people work there. After getting a peek at the pool table and arcade games (which they tried to keep out of sight), I made my way to the full bar. This bar had a great mix of drinks to offer including Sapphire gin, Absolute vodka, Bacardi rum, Red Label, Maker’s Mark and of course wine and beer.
Something DIFF has done an amazing job of this year is the food. I can only assume this was a conscious effort on their part and I have to commend them on this. G Texas Catering whipped up a nice spread of gourmet sliders, burger bites, cheeses and truffles that were all to die for. I have yet to taste something from G Texas Catering that I have not liked.
To top the night off the Brooklyn Brothers (O’Nan and co-star Michael Weston), straight from their movie premier, performed a low-key set that was the jam. The performance was great, as was the film. The boys were even nice enough to schmooze with the crowd afterwards. Most of the DIFF parties feature DJ’s, some good and some not so good. I would love to see more live performances at these parties. Nothing pairs better than movies and music….and cocktails.
