    This is probably just me being self indulgent here, but the Blind Pig has a new cocktail menu themed around CHILDHOOD BOOKS and I literally can't begin to tell you how much I love it. There's butterbeer from Harry Potter, as well as cocktails for Narnia, The BFG, and James and the Giant Peach. Look at the video above. Look how delighted I am. I am 100% sure if you bring your lover here they will be similarly delighted, and if they're not, they're NOT THE ONE.

    Seriously, if they turn round and go, "mmm, no, I'm just not that into The BFG and alcohol combined", you need to walk out.
