truffle slat is better, but hey free is free. Though even if you subtract the salt form the gala price I still paid 27 bucks to watch my favorite hollywood cliches reenact something form recent memory.

SIFF you failed me..

Was there a connection to the movie with fennel salt? Why fennel salt? I'm baffled by this "free" gift.

I walked off with 3 jars of that stuff, and paid nothing for my ticket, but still somehow feel that someone owes me some form of restitution after forcing me to sit through that "movie" and then not even having the decency to buy me a drink afterwards.

Best thing I saw all night was the Stella Artois Beer sign that read "Perfection has it's price". Indeed it does... and Stella Artois needs to pony up for a better copywriter...

You didn't take a picture of the sign, YGBKM?

No. Wish I had.

It was to the left of the bar against the middle of the wall to the right of you as you entered the party in the basement under the Ballet (the one for the riff raff).

If for some reason that fennel salt isn't to your taste, I bet it would be an AWESOME bath/shower scrub if you mixed it with a bunch of grapeseed oil.

Sara - LOL... you just made my day!

Posted by You_Gotta_Be_Kidding_Me | May 23, 2008 1:12 PM

Maybe, just maybe, it would scour the dreck of the film off of me...

Bacon salt kicks fennel salt's ass any day of the week.

Latte-drinkin', Volvo-drivin' fennel salt ...

I am, in fact, not kidding. My foo-foo vegan shower scrub is rosemary oil, sea salt and fennel mixed in a massage oil base. It makes me smell like a salad, but my legs are oh-so-smooth afterwards.

Yup. That's it.

"Four Brothers" is a surprisingly good action movie, if you're looking for more Andre 3000 (with bonus Mark Wahlberg/Fionnula Flanagan).

I gots to know: Who played Richard McIver in the movie?

Jen, you can have my fennel salt and I'll take Michelle. She was the best actress in that movie.

Volterra is one of the big sponsors of SIFF and that is why they gave out the fennel salt. It's great stuff - just used it on my scrambled eggs. I read about the salt when it was in the Oscar gift bags last year but didnt want to spend $24 to buy a jar. I thought that was cool especially since it came from a small independent business.
