for a stupid ice cream cone

Well, don't expect to see The Visitor reviewed on The Center Seat anytime soon.

Captain Crash and I showed up to the screening a full 30 minutes early and discovered a line out the front door of Landmark's Lagoon Cinema. I'm thinking either The Visitor is hugely popular, or the screening was grossly overbooked. Anyway, we gamely got in line, and we got within three people of the box office... when they announced that it was sold out.

Here's the thing... figuring we had plenty of time (I've caught a few of these screenings before, and 30 minutes is always plenty early), we stopped at Mac & Don's Golden Rainbow Lounge for some soft serve. Those precious minutes would have gotten us seats at the Lagoon. Ugh.

The ice cream wasn't even that good. All melty. So not worth it.

I consoled myself with a Blue Moon and some quesadillas. Captain Crash finished The Village Pub's "Big @$$ Burger" and got me a free Grain Belt, too. It's all good, I guess.

    Hey Nayana!

    Glad to see you back, but I TOTALLY understand how our "Real jobs" occassionally pull us away from the blogs. So sorry you missed your screening. I was hoping to see "The Visitor" tonight, but I think my friend is going to talk me into "Forgetting Sarah Marshall."

    Yeah I was at the film fest on Wednesday, but plan on seeing The Visitor at first opportunity. Too bad you couldn't get in. Didn't they know who you were?!?!

    I know this is unthinkable, but it seems the Legend of Nayana has not quite reached the folks at Landmark.

    Someday.
