Now on with the scoop:
Food Adventures first met Henrique Couto at a Chinese Buffet in Centerville. He was wearing pajama pants. We saw his ukelele records in stores and heard about his local trivia shows and local concerts. We even wrote a Food Adventure story about him after we tried his homemade ginger ale – SEE HERE. He is a local celeb, with his trademark hair, mustache and rubber banded beard. Let’s not forget the glasses and flamboyant shirts for a style all his own. Did we mention he is a great guy, with a witty sense of humor ?
His other directing credits are as follows:
Marty Jenkins and the Vampire bitches
Faces of Schlock
Depression the Movie
Bulldog for Christmas
Fast forward to 2013, where we attended the World Premier of Couto’s slasher film, “Babysitter Massacre.” …Of course we bought the DVD !
Now, his scariest film to date “HAUNTED HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW” is having its World Premier this Friday !!
WHAT: Local Horror Movie “HAUNTED HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW” WORLD PREMIER
WHEN: FRIDAY FEB. 21st, 10pm
WHERE: ENGLEWOOD CINEMA, 320 W. National Rd., Englewood, Ohio
COST: Admission is $8
Henrique Couto is a Dayton native like us. He has been interest in film making since he was a kid. In fact, he used to sell DVD’s to fellow classmates out of his trapper keeper at school. By the age of 16 he was formatting DVD menu catalogs that were going into Blockbuster Stores. Now you can buy his movies online at Blockbuster. You can also buy his titles at Hastings, Amazon.com, FYE Stores and even streaming versions on Amazon Prime. You can also find his films at local Game Swap stores and his personal website Hen.Storeenvy.com Henrique’s philosophy is make the films locally and sell them nationally. He gives crowds what they want: slashers, suspense, and thrilling scenes and even nudity. He gives his movies, descriptive, detailed concepts in the titles. Why? Because he doesnt advertise with millions, instead he uses thousands of dollars to make and distribute his movies. And when they are next to a box office blockbuster, he wants his movie to stand out.
Henrique is of Portuguese descent, and is a foodie as well. His favorite Dayton spot is Siam Pad Thai, which was unfortunately closed due to weather, so we went down the street for a FOOD ADVENTURE to new sports bar SIDELINES on Wilmington Pike in Kettering.
********* SIDELINES *********
HERE’s THE SKINNY:
— New restaurant at 4090 Wilmington Pike, with fresh recipe twists on sports bar food
— Great service. The friendly, attentive staff ensures a great meal.
— Lots of UNIQUE dry rubs and one-of-a-kind sauce choices for you chicken wing lovers
— The prices were decent and didnt “scare” our wallet
— DEEP FRIED PORK RIBS: Oh man, oh damn .. succulent twin bones of baby rack ribs, breaded and deep fried then tossed in your fave sauce. Are you kidding? Nothing like it in Dayton. People who loved BURBANK’s “Fribs” aka “Flying pigs wings” will love these things! Sinful, yet sultry…. like The Big Ragu
— THE FRESH CUT FRENCH FRIES: Delicious, and addicting. You have been warned !! The fresh cut makes all the difference.. slasher !
— GRILLED SHRIMP WRAP: A healthy choice that wont bust your waistline, yet will give you all that flavor to savor ! A tasty treat for the soul.
— PHILLY CHEESESTEAK: Loaded with peppers and onions, this sandwich is big and would fill Jason Vorhees’ appetite.
— THE WINGS: The secret here is the sauces and dry rubs. May we recommend the “Dry Ranch Rub” or the “Salt & Vinegar Rub.” As for sauces, our heads roll for the “Kentucky Bourbon” sauce and “Tropical Rum” sauces respectively.
— We hear the burgers are great, unfortunately this wasnt our typical Food Adventure, as we almost always try a restaurant numerous times before posting anything online. We aren’t one plate Nate’s, one dish Trish or one Trip .. uh Trip’s … As the group Train sings “this is not a drive by..ey ey eye eye.” Yeah, we dont do fly by articles, you deserve more. So “cut” us some slack this once …
Sidelines restaurant was a nice surprise in a pinch. We will definitely be back and may do a follow up “2nd helping” article. We suggest you try the flavors and menu items you find at any other sports bar in Dayton. Live it up!
