What’s new and red, green, pink, orange, and blue? It’s Holi-dazed! at Robinson Film Center in downtown Shreveport. This new holiday pop-up installation and special event concept will transform Robinson Film Center’s Abby Singer’s Bistro into a smorgasbord of sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the holiday season debuting November 26.
Conceived by Downtown Shreveport Unlimited/Mudbug Madness, C&C Mercantile and Lighting, and Apex Communications and Events as a way to promote downtown as the fun place to come during the holiday season, this special six-week event also helps support Louisiana’s only independent art-house movie theater. Decorated from top to bottom in RFC’s lobby and upstairs in Abby Singer’s Bistro, this special event will feature hundreds of strands of multi-colored lights along with specialty oversized holiday props and fixtures created by Derek Simmons and Lauren Ross Simmons of C&C Mercantile and Lighting.
RFC’s Chef Tootie Morrison has created a specialty menu of hand-crafted cocktails and delicious appetizers that will include some holiday-favorite flavors. Guests can choose to sip on the Christmas Wreath with Deep Eddy’s Ruby Red grapefruit vodka, rosemary simple syrup and triple sec garnished with a grapefruit slice and fresh rosemary; the Poinsettia with Bread and Butter Prosecco, Cointreau and cranberry juice garnished with fresh cranberry and a twist of orange; or the Lady Bailey with Bailey’s Irish Cream coffee liqueur and half and half, topped with whipped cream, fresh nutmeg and a lady finger cookie.
Perfectly complementing the cocktails are the Holi-dazed! appetizers featuring Marinated Crab Claws, jumbo crab claws marinated in house marinade garnished with lemon slices and smoked paprika; Cranberry-Glazed Meatballs, turkey meatballs with cranberry glaze and ground sage served with crostini; and Filet Focaccia, grilled filet with horseradish cream sauce over fresh baked rosemary focaccia garnished with roasted cherry tomatoes and a rosemary sprig.
