BUTTER BEER + ROOT BEER--270 Google hits, 7 Google Groups hits
Jesus, what a week. Rejected by almost every friend. I wrote in letters to the editor to newspapers that got stuff wrong, and as usual, they weren't printed. Not even Rudy Giuliani gave me money. And you got to figure, Rudy Giuliani, he's a Republican, he's got at least $250, he's GOT to help, and I'm running for Manhattan Borough President, running on the same Republican-Liberal lines that he did, and maybe that would be of some interest to him, maybe a chat or something.......
I went to the Emack & Bolio's ice cream shop at Houston Street (near NYU). A "specialty item" was "Scott's Root Beer Razzle." It's root beer plus ice cream, mixed in. Like a root beer float, but they mix it. A person named "Scott" had come into the store and said that he saw this "razzle" being sold somewhere else. My Google searches for "razzle" plus "ice cream" don't seem to find it anywhere.
"Butter Beer" is a much more popular Harry Potter-inspired item that should be noted.

MAGIC MOMENT HARRY POTTER CASTS SPELL LOCALLY

The Augusta Chronicle
The Chamber of Secrets, The Prisoner of Azkaban, The Sorcerer's Stone - and the greatly anticipated Goblet of Fire are all adventures of a boy wizard named Harry Potter.
They are also the coveted summer reading for children and parents alike.
The newest adventure by author J.K. Rowling kept children up late, waiting in line at local bookstores, which released the book at midnight Friday.
Borders Books Music & Cafe, like other booksellers, made the event a party. There was dirt cake (with worms), a bubbling cauldron of Butter Beer (root beer with caramel) and costumes of the famous characters in the series.

A Midnight Spell That's 896 Pages Long

FOR young readers like 11-year-old Rachel Bowman of Fairfield, Friday is a day she has anticipated for a long time.
''I can't wait,'' she said. ''I've been waiting for this for, like, two years.''
The subject she eagerly calls her ''obsession'' is Harry Potter.
The long-awaited release of the fifth book in J.K. Rowling's series about a precocious boy at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, ''Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,'' has many like Rachel in a state of gleeful agitation.
''I think I'll be too excited to read it,'' she said.
Booksellers across Connecticut are equally energized, not only because it's a major publishing event -- the first four Harry Potter books sold more than 192 million copies worldwide -- but because they've planned a host of festivities to coincide with the book's stage-managed release at the stroke of midnight. List price for the 896-page book, published by Scholastic Inc., is $29.99.
For Mark Mondani, 11, of Cheshire, who said has read each of the previous books at least 13 times, ''The suspense is a lot worse than waiting for Christmas, because I have no clue what the book's going to be about, no clue what's going to happen,'' he said.
At R.J. Julia Booksellers in Madison, there will be costumes, Hogwarts-themed refreshments, a live owl, courtesy of the Connecticut Audubon Society, and winners of a writing contest started two months ago to make up the most original chapter for the next book in the series will be announced.
''There's so much anticipation because so little is known about what the book's about,'' said Beth Brdlik, manager of the children's department. ''When the fourth book was released, a lot of kids now weren't old enough for the books then, but now they're jumping up and down at the counter when talking about the book.''
Jenny Lawton, the owner of Just Books in Greenwich and Just Books Too, a larger store in Old Greenwich that will play host to her ''Harry Potter Party,'' said she enlisted the help of children in planning her festivities, which will run from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m.
''I've been meeting with a group of kids every month, getting ideas from them on what they'd like to see,'' she said. ''They gave me some of the ideas for food, like butter beer, and it was their idea for a costume party.''
Butter beer, for the wizardry-impaired, tastes similar to root beer with some melted butter mixed in.

to host a Harry Potter
release party tonight
Broad Street Books, 357 Broad St., will host a Harry Potter Celebration tonight in anticipation of the "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" release.
Several activities will take place from 9 p.m. to midnight. Through 11 p.m., guests can help construct a giant replica of Hogwart's Castle and join in a Harry Potter trivia contest in which the winner will be the first to get the new book.
Through 10:45 p.m., there will be wand and hat decorating and face painting. Through 10:30 p.m., guests can sort hats to find out which house they belong in and make banners for it.
There will be a public reading of the last chapter of the last Potter installment at 11 p.m., followed by a countdown to the midnight release of the new book.
Non-alcoholic butter beer, which is made like a root beer float, will be available in a collectible plastic cup for $1. Guests also will get a free coupon for treats such as pepper imps, licorice wands, every flavor beans and blood lollipops. Chocolate wands will be on sale.
Where you can eat high on the Hogwarts

Mothers, take your aspirin.
Dentists, avert your eyes.
A collective sugar high is imminent in the form of butter beer.
The beverage, popularized in the Harry Potter books, may sound unholy to adult brew lovers. But for kids, it's heaven in a glass - a sugary drink made even sweeter.
Several downtown Naperville restaurants will serve some form of the syrupy concoction this weekend as part of special menus arranged for "Muggle Magic," which begins at noon today.
Recipes vary, but at Arbor Vitae Java & Juice, the drink will consist of root beer, Ghirardelli caramel and whipped cream.
"We came up with it because that's what we do. We're always mixing and blending," said owner Theresa Pryor. "It's definitely sweet."
At Jimmy's Grill and Brickhouse Pizzeria, the staff was still striving Thursday to nail the perfect blend of ginger ale and butterscotch.
"It's just super sweet," said owner Jim Bergeron. "It's so sugary, it makes your cheeks hurt."
Butter beer aside, his eateries will offer other drinks, including "bat juice" (cherry or orange juice) and "Potter water" (very cherry soda) to keep kids quenched. For bigger muggles, there are alcoholic varieties, such as "dragon's drool" (electric lemonade).
The entire Potter-ized menus include offerings from cauldron cakes to dragon eggs to a Hagrid burger.
"This is just going to be a gas," said Bergeron, an admitted Potter junkie who's read the first five books. "It's such an obvious, good promotion. We'd just be totally remiss in letting this one pass."
Other restaurants that plan to be put under the Potter spell include Egg Harbor Cafe, Jefferson Hill Tea Room, Lou Malnati's Pizzeria, Promenade Cafe, Quigley's Irish Pub, Red Door Tavern, Sullivan's Steak House and Sushi House.
Eerie, eek-inducing eats aren't just for muggles, either.
At Two Bostons pet boutique and bakery, four-legged visitors can chow on treats like "chocolate frogs" - canine-friendly cookies dipped in carob.
"I think that's going to be a big hit," said owner AdreAnne Tesene. "Right away, we just loved the idea and thought about how much fun we could have with it."
