Harry Potter and Anthony’s

Usually Sunday is for grocery shopping, laundry, and True Blood but not this Sunday. J and I are huge Potterheads (Potterites, Potterers), we were dying to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2.

First, there was some eating.

Cropped Sign

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza. We started with a shared house salad with gorgonzola.

We ordered the a new menu addition which is cauliflower, breadcrumbs, and cheese. It was different but the roasted cauliflower and saltiness of the cheeses on the charred thin crust, made for good eats.

We had some time to kill before movie started and walked around Pointe Orlando.

Wish I could have gotten a better picture of this cutout but people kept walking in front of it.

Did you know that the theaters will give these to you when they no longer need them? J does and he is always pointing out which ones would look awesome in our garage.

The movie was in 3D on the IMAX which I liked. I am not over 3D when it is done well. If you are a fan of the books, you will not be disappointed in how they wrap everything up. It is an apt end to a movie franchise which took movies about books to an entirely different level. I am sad for the franchise to be over but hope that sometime (in this or the next decade) we do get a new series from J.K. Rowling.

Will you go see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2? If you did see it, did you like it?

Bar Louie and the return of J

J was in LA last week for E3. It was nice to have the house to myself but I missed him. (Not as much as the cats who spent nearly the entire week sleeping and moping around.) It just goes to show, I am only second best to those cats to J. He came back yesterday morning and we were able to have a nice evening on Saturday.

We went to Bar Louie in Dr. Phillips for a casual dinner before a movie.

J had the Buffalo Style Crispy Calamari for an appetizer. He thought it was different and he really liked it. 

We split chips with guacamole, salsa, and queso.

I had the Grilled Veggie Wrap. It was huge and I only could eat half but it will be good for lunch today.

J had The Luigi which is shaved ribeye, lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, and olive oil.

We had a good time even though some of us needed more prompting than others. Smile for the camera J.

After dinner we went to see Super 8 on the IMAX at Pointe Orlando. It was a great movie and I would definitely recommend it.

Does your city have upside down buildings? Orlando does.

I also spotted police officers on horse back give someone (in a car) a ticket.

Now I need to head out the door for some grocery shopping. Stay tuned for my next post on running my first 15K. I am working on putting together a training plan (the race is the end of September) but have never raced anything longer than a 5K so I’m nervous/excited.

What did you do on Saturday?
