If you miss Monkey Town, the restaurant that paired pig dishes with swine cinema, here’s a chance to experience something similar. Shira Levine, the hostess of that barracuda revenge dinner, is teaming up with New York Vintners to produce a trio of dinner-and-a-movie events. At “Apocalypse Sow” on April 1, Charlie Sheen’s favorite flick will be screened while chef Ryan Smith operates (according to the invite) “without any decent restraint, totally beyond the pale of any acceptable human conduct,” all in the interest of terminating his food with extreme prejudice. (See the menu below to find out exactly what that means.)

The dinner is sold out, but another one is already in the works. "Ryan and Jason's Excellent Vegan Adventure" will of course be a vegan dinner, possibly involving vegan musicians, and to prepare for it, partner Shane Benson is telling Facebook friends that he and Smith are cutting out meat and dairy: “We will both eat strict vegan diets two weeks prior to our six course vegan banquet paired with six amazing organic/biodynamic wines while we regale everyone with our trials and tribulations of being vegan.” You can see the menu here.
