Saturday Morning Update #96

The last week of November came and went in a flash. Everyone is too full to move so you're stuck at home doing shopping for themselves. It's the most wonderful time of the year! Keep reading to find out what I did this week and get some links to some sweet treats and sweet deals.

This week we went to see Frozen 2 and decided to go to one of those fancy full service restaurant style movie theaters. Every seat came with a slide-out table to eat some gourmet dinners on. Every seat except one. You can tell from the photo above who got screwed into that one seat.

The theater also had assigned seating so technically we did pick those seats, but we'd never been there before and the cashier didn't explain that. We didn't even know any of that was going to happen, we just thought there was a restaurant in the lobby.

I've been to theaters where every seat has a tray attached to the cup holder which is way better than the system of a bar top that screws every fifth seat out of a place to sit. Also, since there was no proper concession stand we had to wait until after we'd been sitting for a while to get popcorn. Luckily we ordered dinner with it because we never saw our waiter again. I know there are a bunch of theaters like this one and this is the first one I've ever been to, but it's definitely the worst.

Here's some cool links to some cool things:
