Review 
We might as well just copy & paste last year's review for this one...hmmm, maybe I will. "2013: This year's Signature Drink is named the same as last year's drink since the theme is still The Walking Dead, hence the Dead Walker. But, yet again, don't worry - you won't be turning into a zombie after consuming a few of these. The Full Throttle gives it a sour punch at the end, is still easy to drink but you'll fill up drinking these long before you feel any alcoholic kick from them." Yup, that still fits...unfortunately.

Skip This One...
 
Get This One!


**Just skip this sorry excuse for a cocktail and grab a Mike's Harder Lemonade at a beer cart if you want something sweet, sour and with actual alcohol - a whopping 8% in a can. (Hey, we just want our fair share - the bars constantly under pour what you are paying for.)

We still stand by the rule that beer is your best value for your money at these events. If you order a regular mixed drink, watch them carefully to make sure you get a fair pour - the souvenir glasses are supposed to be doubles, but we've caught several bartenders pouring a single. Speak up - it's your money and you're only asking for what is the correct and fair pour. 

Duff Brewery and Moe's Tavern is open during HHN and is a nice spot to take a break from the event. They will not refill your HHN specialty glass with Duff beer, but there's nothing stopping you from ordering one and pouring it in yourself. Duff Brewery is pouring Dead Walkers though, if you must.

Souvenir Glasses
The signature souvenir plastic cup is 20oz., and since the regular mixed drinks are $7 and a souvenir refill is $7, if you plan on having a few it's better off to go with the souvenir cup. However, we measured the regular plastic beer cup versus the souvenir cup and there is just slightly more beer (about .5oz-ish) in the regular non-souvenir cup for beer. So if you plan on drinking only beer all night, there's no point in getting the souvenir cup, unless you want to be blinky! 


Bar & Food Stands

Bar and food stands are located throughout the park for the event. In addition to these stands, Mel's "Die-In", Monster's Cafe outdoor bar, Finnegan's, Chez Alcatraz, the Bakery and the new Simpsons counter service will be open during the event.

Below, Buffalo Fries. Soooo good. Definetly hit the spot after a long night...or an early start. Whichever. Other flavors available too.


Food & bar booths are subject to change locations, be removed or have new locations added during the course of the event.
