I have an aversion to guts, so try as I might, I couldn’t get into “The Walking Dead,” the popular AMC zombie show
But lots of people are into it – way into it – and a local restaurant plans to feed on them. I mean feed them.
“The Walking Dead” returns for its seventh season on Sunday night, and Gianni Bacci’s at 301 N. Washington is inviting fans to a watch party that will include a $15 dinner buffet and zombie-themed drinks.
Many of the items on the buffet include nods to the show, including a cream of celery and paprika soup inspired by the cream of celery and paprika casserole character Carol made on an episode last season. It’ll also have a dressed up chocolate pudding, an ode to the industrial-sized can of pudding character Carl scarfed down in an episode two years ago.
Never miss a local story.
The idea for the party came from owner Steven Bacci.
“I started watching ‘The Walking Dead’ last February and I fell in love with it,” he said. “I thought it would be fun to put on a watch party.”
Tickets to the watch party, which will also include “The Walking Dead” trivia, are $15 and are available at gb-twd.eventbrite.com. The season seven premiere starts at 8 p.m. Sunday on AMC, Cable channel 55 and 2055.
