You had us at “poutine fries.” That and much more are popping up on the popup burger bar menu at this Clifton landmark. In addition to hefty burgers like the surf n’ turf (28-day dry-aged Angus beef and a lobster tail) and the Miami Cuban with Serrano ham, Chef is serving up truffle mac ‘n’ cheese and adult milkshakes. We’ve got dibs on the maple bacon shake with a shot of Bourbon for an extra fiver.

Start out this weekend with the irrepressible “Bad News Bears” before graduating to “Bull Durham,” “A League of Their Own” and “Moneyball.” The festival even mixes in a few not-to-be-missed documentaries.
