Enjoy $5 tequila every Thursday at Bacchus. After a few shots, what kind of impression will you make?....

Last year, while introducing himself at a film festival, Robert DeNiro said, “Every day for 42 fucking years, at least one person has come up to me and said,

‘You talkin’ to me?’

This famous trivial line from 1976's Taxi Driver will go down in history as one of the all time greats. It’s not necessarily the words, it’s the performance. DeNiro’s character, Travis, looks himself in the mirror and imagines what he would do if he were to be confronted by a bad guy. He repeats the line over and over with increasing anxiety and emphasis on different words each time until he boils over.

What an incredible performance it was. Nominated for an Oscar that year, DeNiro lost out to Peter Finch (Network).

In sharp contrast, fifteen years ago, one of the worst performances was given on screen in the movie Swept Away. The movie, actors and actresses swept the Razzies! The “stranded on a desert island with a diva” motion picture starred Madonna and an Italian actor by the name of Adriano Giannini. Nice to look at. :-)

His most memorable line is a bit more complicated than DeNiro’s. It went like this:

Your loins will burn with desire, with crazy passion. Like a sickness! I'll get under your skin, under your head, your heart, your belly! I'm going to be your god! Is that clear?

Wouldn’t it be a riot to hear RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants say these words!? Well, stranger things have happened.

Come drink with us and watch with us!
