I recently discovered that Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, hosts a monthly event called Spoons, Toons & Booze. This event is basically an adult version of Saturday morning cartoons at a movie theater. Genius, you say? You don't know the half of it.
First, a ticket to the event itself ($11, if I recall correctly) includes an all-you-can-eat cereal buffet full of sugary favorites (and they even provide soy milk!). Lucky Charms, how could I have gone so long without your marshmallowy goodness?
Second, this theater serves actual food, so you can order Eggs Benedict to forestall the sugar crash. The method for ordering ingeniously allows you to avoid disturbing fellow movie-goers when you order: slips of paper and golf pencils are provided, so you write your order on a slip and place it in a little stand at the front of your table, and the waiter plucks it noiselessly away and returns with your order. No talking!
Third, each cartoon is chosen differently, with varying levels of audience participation. The first one was chosen by popular vote, after inviting a few shouted suggestions from the audience at large. This won:
Next, the winner of a brief cartoons-and-cereal-themed trivia contest chose Dexter's Laboratory.
The final cartoon was chosen by secret ballot -- and you got one vote for each alcoholic beverage you'd consumed by that point. Oh, did I not mention that? One of the most amazing parts of this event is that you can order Cereal Shots. Yes, that's Bailey's to put on your Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Or Kahlua for your Cocoa Puffs.
In case you have a weak imagination, Bailey's on Cinnamon Toast Crunch is delicious. Go try it immediately.
