It has been over 20 years since "Tremors," which starred Kevin Bacon, played in theaters. Where has the time gone? I remember going to the theater to see this movie on its first run.
For those who missed it the first time around, "Tremors" is playing at midnight tonight at the Capitol Theater. As is often the case with the Capitol Theater's Late Shift movies, Melt created a sandwich to pair with the movie: 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon BLT Melt ($16.00).
The sandwich is enormous! The list of goodness includes hickory smoked bacon, applewood smoked bacon, black pepper crusted slab bacon, pancetta, candied bacon, herb cream cheese mixed with bacon bits, bacon infused mayonnaise, sharp cheddar, romaine, and tomatoes.
I could barely make a dent into my half of the sandwich with my first bite. What a glorious first bite it was - a bit of hickory smoked bacon, some lettuce and tomato, and a beautiful marriage of flavors from the herb cream cheese, bacon, and mayonnaise.
Subsequent bites were on the verge being overwhelming with the combination of smoke, pepper, saltiness, and sweetness. It was like taking a culinary dive attached to a bungee cord. Just as you are about to hit the ground screaming, the cord reels you back.
