Popcorn is food, right?
OK, I don't know if this is the best blog for this particular post, but I feel compelled to share a couple of tips I've picked up from seeing movies recently:
1. If you don't want to pay $15+ for an oversized popcorn-and-drinks combo, check the menu for a kids' combo option. Usually, this consists of a reasonably-sized portion of popcorn, a small beverage and candy, all for you. It'll only cost you about $5, and your wallet and your stomach will thank you.
2. All movies are only $5 at Newport on the Levee if you go before noon on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday or holiday. Plus, there are usually only a couple of other cheapskates in the theater at this hour (and if you're anything like me, you find Newport on the Levee intolerably crowded and overrun with kids on Friday and Saturday nights).
OK, fellow Foodie Reporters, please feel free to resume blogging about actual food now.
