On the Big Screen,

There are some things that just go great together: hugs and kisses, French fries and milkshakes, and of course, pizza and porn. True, bubbling cheese and big screen bare-alls can be difficult to find commingled, but tonight at the Upper East Side Garden (7244 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami) you can kick back to both — sorta. “It’s really silly,” says Garden owner Peter Rozek. “At our last event we played Benny Hill and a ’70s instructional ‘How to Be a Better Lover’ video.”

During tonight’s affair, Che Sopranos — a neighborhood pizza and pasta hotspot — is putting together an inexpensive mini-menu along with a $5 wine and champagne bar, so you can chillax with a glass of bubbly and plate of yummy food while hijinks unfold on the big screen. Good puritanicals who like their titillation sans food will still find plenty to sate their needs: Shell five bucks at the door and you get a complimentary Grolsch beer, access to the adorable Back Nine putt-putt course, the film, AND live music. “We don’t know who will be playing yet,” says Rozek “even if it’s just me banging on some pots; Maybe I’ll make it big!” The film starts at 8 p.m.; the garden is open from 7 p.m. to midnight.
