Earlier in the week, I was combing through the archives, looking for commemorative bottles to include in an exhibit we're helping to put together for the Ghent Museum of Design in Belgium. We have lots of interesting bottles, but this one in particular caught my eye. It's a commemorative bottle made in 2002 for the release of the film Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. How fortunate of a find, seeing as today is the opening day of the final movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part Two -- or HP7P2 to all you fellow Potterheads out there.
Whether, like me, you grew up with HP, read the books to your children, or became a child at heart again through them, I know you won't want to miss seeing the final film in theatres. So let you imagination free this weekend and enjoy two of your favorites: Harry Potter and ice cold Coca-Cola. I know I will.
