Follow Friday: Pass the Popcorn
It's that time again. We've compiled a small but meaningful list of great Twitter accounts for any Phoenix foodie to follow. We like it sweet and savory (and even a mix of both), we like it with our favorite flicks, we like it at the park, at the fair, we like it anywhere. It's popcorn and we have some great spots around town to share - and they're on Twitter, too.
Brittlebrush Bar & Grill (@WestinKierland)
If you have a hankering for gourmet popcorn with flavors inspired from trips around the world, and it happens to be between 2 and 5 p.m. we know where you can go. With the purchase of a draft beer, you can get free popcorn at Brittlebrush Bar & Grill within the Kierland Golf Club at the Westin Kierland Resort. Phoenix Magazine reports flavors like "basil oil and parmesan, or lemon zest and rosemary....coconut and Indian curry, smoked paprika and Spanish sherry, or coffee....cocoa and orange honey, or asiago cheese and chive oil." That's some hard-core popcorn - save us a seat at the bar.
The FilmBar (@thefilmbarphx)
Get your art/classic/cult/indie film on in Downtown Phoenix with a cold beer and hot popcorn. It's a match made in movie theater heaven.
Harkins Theaters (@HarkinsTheatres)
Do you have a loyalty t-shirt for 25 smackaroos that gives you a free medium popcorn every time you visit? Maybe you put a sprinkle of that flavor dust on your movie theater popcorn before you load up on napkins and a straw. It's hard to go to the movies and not get a popcorn.
Poppa Maize (@poppamaize)
Poppa Maize will take care of any popcorn craving you might be experienceing. They have dozens of flavors like Cheesy Chipotle, Banana, Pineapple Jalapeno, and German Chocolate. Get a big bag (or tin) if you're hungry or lots of small bags to have your own popcorn tasting party. Follow their tweets to see where they'll bring their popcorn at local events as well as any specials or community news.
