Eats & Bounds: 12/17/15

Things are winding down a bit in Lubbock as Christmas inches closer and closer.

There is a little movie coming out this weekend that is a direct sequel to a film that debuted the year I was born. I know we were all hoping for that WarGames sequel, but I have high hopes for this version of Star Wars. Those hopes are elevated even higher with my love of the soundtrack. I was the kid who played the Star Wars Theme at his piano recital. I also had tickets to Star Wars in Concert when it was supposed to stop by the USA a few years ago. Sadly, I may have been the only one, and they ended up cancelling it.

Last I checked, there were still some tickets for The Force Awakens available at Alamo Drafthouse.
