A movie, popcorn, and… beer

I'll have popcorn and a Grolsch

Over the weekend we went to see a Hollywood movie at the local cinema and I discovered how the Dutch have taken movie-going to a higher level.  Not only does the concessions stand serve the usual popcorn, snacks, and soft drinks, but it also serves BEER.  Is that genius or what?!  And halfway through every film (regardless of length) there is an intermission so you can get up, stretch your legs, and buy more beer.  Not to mention, the beer is served to you in a proper glass, not a plastic cup.  Likewise, you can order a cappuccino which it is made fresh from the coffee machine and served to you in a coffee cup.

About Home Strange Home

I first left the US in 1999, when I was 18 years old. Since then, I’ve spent 13 years living abroad - 3 in Canada, 7 in Europe, and 3 in Africa. Now I've finally returned to the US on a one-way plane ticket. I arrived home in late January 2014 and set foot in the US for the first time in nearly 2.5 years. In Home Strange Home, I blog about the ups and downs of my re-acculturation experience.
