Parents taking your kids to "Harry Potter" tonight, don't fret. If you go to Landmark's Harbor East Cinema, at least you won't have to watch the movie sober.
The theater's bartender, Ginny Lawhorn, has come up with a "Harry Potter"-themed cocktail menu to coincide with the movie's release.
Not that the movie's bad. In fact, reviews have been ecstatic. But who can keep up with all that nonsense about muggles and mudbloods?
Now, when your kids - or maybe your significant other with the Harry Potter obsession - is blathering on about Horcrux or Quittich or whatever, you can tune out for a couple of hours with one of Lawhorn's anesthesizing cocktails.
Starting today, there will be seven different Potter cocktails at the theater, including a Tom Riddle Collins and an Expecto Patronum, a cocktail with a Patron tequila base. All are sold for less than ten bucks.
Lawhorn comes up with movie-themed menus on a weekly basis. But this menu is particularly special because she's a big fan of the movies herself.
Needless to say, all the boy and girls wizards who wish to taste the cocktails, will have to be over 21.
