Dinner & A Movie — Seafood-Style

Head to Yankee Pier in Lafayette tomorrow at 6 p.m. for just that, as well as a lesson in sustainable seafood.

The evening will get started with a screening of the international documentary, “The End of the Line,” which made its debut at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. The film by Rupert Murray is the first major documentary to focus on the crisis facing today’s oceans because of overfishing.

Yankee Pier is joining with other restaurants around the country to host the “Fish ‘n’ Flicks” screening to urge consumers to choose sustainable seafood and to forgo critically endangered species such as bluefin tuna and beluga sturgeon.

The screening will be followed by a sustainable seafood dinner at 7 p.m., which includes classic New England clam chowder, Florida popcorn shrimp cocktail, barbecue-glazed artic char, and pan-roasted Hawaiian mahi-mahi.

Price for the dinner and movie is $39 per person. For reservations, call (925) 283-4100.
