Saturday night I found myself at the Hardback Coffee Café in the Hastings store on Georgia St. here in balmy Amarillo, TX sipping a Spanish Mocha with my friend TravelGirl listening to Tyler from Pampa perform a string of songs Jack Johnson style. Good coffee, good music, good times. What more could you ask for?
One of the songs that Tyler from Pampa sang had lyrics that included “chillin’ in my Snuggie,” which, once I stopped laughing, reminded me that I was supposed to write a blog about Snuggies and how practical they can be: from using them on a plane (Real-Housewives-of-Dallas-style in leopard print) to covering Crazy Uncle Ed who passed out in his lawn chair after the family picnic. Then I realized that we blogged about Snuggies last October.
So I searched our site for something else to blog about. I didn’t have to look far. Did you know that Hastings is the Green Lantern Headquarters? Check out our Green Lantern Headquarters Page. There’s a countdown to its theatrical release on June 17. While you’re there, scroll to the bottom and check out the movie trailer. I can’t wait to for it to come out!
The video games with the tie-in to the Green Lantern movie come out on June 7. Check out the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 formats—they even support 3D graphics. Who wouldn’t want the chance to fight Parallax in 3D? Click here to reserve your copy on the web today, or go to your local store and reserve a copy there.
Calling all collectors! We have the Green Lantern action figures you crave. We even have a collectible Green Lantern Golden Age action figure based on DC’s first Green Lantern. This bad boy even comes with his own display stand and accessories!
And as if all that weren’t enough, we have all the other cool Green Lantern stuff. We have hats, t-shirts, aprons, masks, keychains, wallets, stickers, and more! We even have a Green Lantern Honor Guard Ring Prop Replica. Just what the collector ordered!
I don’t know about you, but I’m loving all this Green Lantern stuff. I’m gonna buy a Green Lantern Thermal Mug and fill it with coffee from the Hastings Hardback Café. And, speaking of the Hardback Café again, check out the Google Places and Yelp sites for your local Hardback Café. You’ll find a coupon for $1 off a smoothie that’s good for the month of June. That’s just what you need to cool you down during the dog days of summer. And, if you’re lucky, you might get to listen to some good music performed by some talented local musicians. Or see someone chillin’ in a Snuggie.
