3 New Movies About Cocktails, Wine, and Coffee You Can Watch Right Now
Three new films about cocktails, wine, and coffee (two documentaries and one comedy), have recently hit the On Demand circuit. So now you can follow the dreams of bartenders, learn about what it's like to take the master sommelier exam, and laugh at coffee culture whenever and wherever you'd like -- and maybe with a refreshment or two of your own.
The story of "the comeback of the cocktail and the rebirth of the bartender," this documentary focuses on the journeys of two bartenders: an injured Marine in a flashy New York City speakeasy and a former bank executive in a Connecticut hole-in-the-wall.
There also are interviews with renowned bartenders, a peek into New York's most exclusive bars, and commentary from New York City hospitality bigwigs Danny Meyer (Gramercy Tavern), Amy Sacco (Bungalow 8), and Frank Pelligrini (Rao's).
(Bonus points for using Joe Jackson's "I'm the Man" in the soundtrack.)
You can watch Hey Bartender On Demand via iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and Xbox. For more information, follow the movie on Facebook.
