Video Game Themed Dinner and a Movie

Dawn is staying at my (Rosalind’s) place for the summer, and my husband, Billy, and I are using the opportunity to introduce her to a variety of movies and tv shows that she’s missed. One of these was The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, one of the greatest Geek documentaries about the rivalry of Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell’s attempts to get the high score in Donkey Kong.

As we planned the evening, Dawn and Billy were concocting this idea to make the fireballs from Donkey Kong as cookies. Well, then we decided that if we were going to have fireballs, there should be barrels. And what’s dessert without a few new cocktails? So Dawn decided to invent the Princess Peach and Billy, not to be outdone, started considering the drink Link’s Triforce. This continued on for a while.

Once the gluten-free flour dust had all settled, we had managed an entirely video game themed dinner, movie, dessert, and drinks based on some favorite classic Nintendo games. We thought you might want to see how this all turned out!
