Stonecutter Spirits teams up with Mary's Restaurant chef-owner Doug Mack and host Laura Mack to regale visitors with a quirky, film-inspired fête. Start with chicken-and-apple dumplings and a tree-fruit gin fizz, courtesy of Fantastic Mr. Fox. Then take a red-capped seafaring adventure featuring ceviche and tropical, tiki-like tipples inspired by The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. In the third course, celebrate Moonrise Kingdom's young and angsty summer love with hazelnut halibut and a bittersweet whiskey beverage. Usher in the credits with an indulgent chocolate finish, like those served in the heyday of The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Wes Anderson Cocktail Dinner: Saturday, March 4, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Mary's at the Inn at Baldwin Creek, Bristol. $65 plus tax and tip; preregister.
