Glass Half Full Tap House at the Alamo

The Alamo Drafthouse has been at the forefront as the best of the cinema eateries in the country. As their name is Drafthouse, it's only natural that the lobby bar, the Glass Half Full, be stocked with the best of the DFW breweries on tap, weekly and seasonal specials. Not only is the Glass Half Full a great place to wait for your movie before hand and to discuss the movie afterwards, there are also theme nights and you don't have to attend a movie to enjoy them. Enjoy events like Tiki Bingo Night, Cards Against Humanity Game Night, Geek Who Drink and Meet the Brewer Nights and well as random programming theme nights.

Dallas Movie Screenings had an opportunity to explore the new food menu that is currently being offered at the Glass Half Full. The short list of selections are brilliantly displayed with a wide variety of taste combinations for every pallet. Soups, Salads & Wraps, Sandwiches, and Pizzas & Calzones are offered in a number of combinations. Any salad can be a wrap, with steak, chicken and tofu if desired. Any pizza can be a calzone. The selections while not on the theater menu can be still ordered for your movie dining pleasure. All the food is made in-house and from scratch from the dressings, bread and soups. For those with Gluten restrictions, a Gluten free pizza can also be requested. Their wonderful selections of pizzas can also be ordered as take-out, because you will WANT to take some home with you. The new menu choices are available anytime! Not just during lunch. Don't forget to check out their updated beer mixes and beer list.

The new menu! Please click on the picture to enlarge.

Dusty Patek (bar manager and creator of the menu) and Bryan Penley (director of operations) have been working on this concept for 15 years and hope to take it nationally.

Glass Half Full Tap Room's bar manager and foodie extraordinaire, Dusty Patek, talked about his inspirations behind the made fresh, from scratch menu choices.

Dusty describes his life philosophy as: "Let's Eat!"

"Ever the adventurer and always curious, I enjoy being mobile, seeing, doing, and more importantly, eating new things. ... I have eaten New England clam chowder, but never in the expanse of its namesake. New York, New Jersey, and Chicago style pizza? Philly cheese steaks? Jamaican jerk pork? What was happening to me? Are these foods really better when eaten where their roots lie? Is eating Italian food better in Little Italy? I realized that if this is the case, then I need to book a trip to Peking for some duck in a hurry.
My passion for foodstuff not only lies in eating at new places or trying something I have never had before, but finds its home in creating it, talking about it, writing, and teaching about it. Whether flipping through one of my hundreds of cookbooks or simply daydreaming; food is often on the forefront of my mind. From sour dough in San Francisco to the miraculous world of all things food in New York City, if you are to ever cross paths with me and ask, 'What should we do?' My answer will receptively be 'Let’s Eat!'"

Now for the food porn. Sorry the pictures are not the greatest taken with my semi-dumb phone. Please click on the pictures to enlarge.
