Phish ‘Dinner And A Movie’ Ep. 6 – 10/28/16 – MGM Grand Garden Arena – Full Show
The accompanying dinner will feature a Mike Gordon-picked selection of vegetarian dishes as they appear on the menu of Philadelphia restaurant Zahav. The restaurant is owned by chef Michael Solomonov, a partner of Federal Donuts which provided the donuts for fans during Phish’s 2017 Baker’s Dozen run at Madison Square Garden.
This week’s Vegas show follows Episode 1 (8/31/12 and Trey & Sue’s “Between Me and My Mouth” veggie chili), Episode 2 (7/27/14 and Mike’s favorite Hen of the Wood mushroom toast), Episode 3 (7/25/17 and Page’s Tuna Sandwich), Episode 4 (8/22/15 and the Fishmans’ three-course meal), and Episode 5 (7/9/19 and the Anastasio family recipe for Eggplant Parmigiana).
The Dinner and a Movie webcasts have become an eventful weekly highlight for Phish fans during the ongoing quarantines. Fans will also remember back in Episode 2 when the band hopped on a video call during the set break to announce the release of their new album, Sigma Oasis.
The dinner recipe portion of this week’s broadcast as picked by Gordon offers fans a selection of deliciously healthy culinary courses including 5-Minute Hummus with Quick Tehina Sauce (served with pita, obviously), Spicy Roasted Cauliflower with Tahini, and Slow-Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Garlic Labneh.
For episode 6 the band has chosen Frontline Foods as the non-profit beneficiary for this week’s webcast, as the announcement notes,
Frontline Foods is a grassroots volunteer-based non-profit that raises money to pay local restaurants to prepare meals for the heroes responding to the COVID-19 crisis. 100% of funds raised go directly to restaurants to help keep the food industry afloat in communities. The effort is meant to be a boon to morale and show appreciation to those on the front lines risking their own health.
