Buffalo is home to many little gems and secrets. Yesterday, Yelp Elites were lucky to uncover The Screening Room Cinema Cafe: Buffalo's only boutique Theater which showcases independent films, old movies anime and various film-tastic premieres. Check out their web site for a full schedule.
Not so much a huge secret anymore (unless you've been living under a suburban rock), Lloyd made an appearance to cater the event and provide a delectable complimentary taco bar for Yelp Elites. If you're considering using Lloyd as a catering service, stop considering and DO IT. Their setup is incredibly professional. They bring all the equipment necessary including even hot water to keep the chafing dishes warm. Their prices are, lucky for us, very reasonable.
Thanks to The Screening Room Cafe, Lloyd and all the wonderful Elites and their +1's who made the voyage yesterday in spite of the snow: life was grande for a few hours. Elite's joyfully participated in movie trivia (and won some great prizes), enjoyed complimentary beer, wine, popcorn, tacos with chicken, beef, beans or wild rice, corn and bean salad, nachos with delicious Lloyd guacamole and even some Aztec Brownies for dessert! We then watched "It's A Wonderful Life" on some nice comfy couches or seats.
As Kristin H eloquently wrote: "almost every Yelper in the room was introduced to The Screening Room Cinema Café. And *gasp* even a couple of attendees enjoyed their first Lloyd Taco Truck experience (...can you imagine??). It was a match made in heaven!" She adds "PS - Lloyd (I,II & III), I will continue to stalk you all around town in 2014!"
Jody G had similar feelings: "The "Screening Room is a great alternative to all of those mega-plexes out there. It's small and cozy, and offers many seating options (comfy couches on which to cuddle.... wing back chairs.... and tables just right for munching at)." She even further gave a shout out to Lloyd and their legendary Rocket Sauce (which makes a great holiday gift BTW) ... yum! She concludes: "When one is a Yelp Elite it truly IS a wonderful life!"
If you've never experienced either The Screening Room Cafe or Lloyd, I urge you...for your own sanity and taste buds...to do so! If you're still looking for holiday gift ideas, The Screening Room Cafe offers fantastic movie packages which include two tickets, two beers or wines...for $25. Check it out! A marvelous place to enjoy movies or even rent out for your own private event :). An enthusiastic Yelper even set up a UYE (Unofficial Yelp Event) for their upcoming Anime night in January. Check it out here!
