This year's films include the 2011 Academy Award–winning comedic short film God Of Love, which reveals the romantic adventures of a lounge-singing darts champion, and the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival Official Selection Challenging Impossibility, which documents the uplifting transformation of one man's mind and body. The upstart festival has developed the steel-ribbon Wavecrest Awards, which honor the best director, best actor, best actress, best slow-motion jump from an exploding hot-dog stand, and more.
Whether it's Margarita Monday, Whiskey Wednesday, or Sangria Saturday, there's a reason to visit Pan Filo's Company nearly every day.

To complement these libations, guests can fill up on tostadas, tortas, and salads, but it's the restaurant's gourmet tacos, that are the true stars of the menu. Pan Filo's chefs stuff their handmade tortillas with unique, savory ingredients like braised short rib and radishes or chicken, sweet peppers, goat cheese, and bacon.
