Wednesday Night Pitcher Show

The best part: People bring you beer and there’s free-ish popcorn!

Info/cost: Eden Bar, Enzian Theater, 1300 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland; free movie, various menu prices; 407-629-0054;

It lasts: As long as there’s a movie and the bar is open

OK, we know you can watch movies at home in your underwear for free, but get this: You’d have to get your own beer and cook your own dinner like a chump. Is that what you are? A chump who makes his or her own food? You’re better than that. The Enzian has a weekly series of film screenings on the lawn where you can get pitchers of beer-verages and yummy vittles that someone else has prepared for you! Like you’re the Queen of England! The movie selections are often nostalgic and culty, like the upcoming screenings of The Exorcist and Death to Smoochy, and coincidentally, they’re usually the kind of movie that’s better while drankin’ with friends. If you get there early, not only do you get a better parking spot, but you also get to play Jell-O shot movie trivia; if you use the $3 valet service, you can show your valet stub and get some free popcorn, too. So to recap: cold beer, good food, outdoor movie, free popcorn, Jell-O shot trivia. See you there!
