Duwayne’s Pick: Super Troopers 2! I am a big fan of Broken Lizard and Super Troopers is my favorite movie that have done. This is a movie many years in the making and it only came together because their fans crowdfunded the movie. The trailers looks good and it looks like they have not lost a step since the first. I am ready for laughs and their crazy antics.

Tim’s Pick: Super Troopers 2. Can’t wait to see all the guys. Who knows, maybe Beerfest 2 is coming.

Think you can do better? Is there anything you’d like to see each Friday from our WGOT session? Restaurant reviews? Specials at your local theater or bar/restaurant? Maybe a cocktail suggestion or two? LET US KNOW AT INFO@COCKTAILSANDMOVIES.COM

Join us on Facebook or on Twitter for other conversations as well. All we ask every Friday is Whaddya Got On Tap?

We’ll see you around over the weekend, but until then make sure to treat your films and your drinks with equal responsibility. Skip the bad movies, and know when to say “No” to that refill! Though calling an Uber or Lyft is always an option as well!
