This 'Harry Potter' Themed Starbucks Is A Dream Come True

San Diego Comic-Con is in full swing and everyone wants in on the action. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a local Starbucks in Hilton Bayfront has made their eatery Harry Potter themed in honor of the weekend’s special devotion to all things magical. They even changed their doorway to look like the entrance to Platform 9 3/4, but this ride takes you to caffeine town instead of Hogwarts.

This Rocket-Powered Fidget Spinner Is Every 13-Year-Old's Dream

Every kid in middle school probably has about three fidget spinners by now, but please do not let them do to their fidget spinners what YouTuber The Backyard Scientist did to his: power it by freakin’ rockets.  

It’s all truly dangerous fun: again, if you were considering trying this at home, note that this professional maker of cool stuff accidentally shot one of the rockets at his car!

He even manages to get a drone in there, filming it all, in case the 12-year-old child in your life needs to be further convinced of this YouTuber’s prime coolness.

For me, an adult, the whole thing is all a little terrifying, but this guy isn’t a stranger to working with flaming devices. Here he is shooting a propane rifle.

This Japanese 'Library Hotel' Is Every Book Lover's Dream

I’ve never stayed in a themed-hotel, but I think it would be pretty dope to stay in a hotel that caters to something you especially love, like this Spongebob Squarepants vacation home.

But if Bikini Bottom isn’t necessarily your scene, you could always stay at this library hotel in Japan.

Book and Bed is a hostel that’s designed to look exactly like an old-timey library and has been attracting traveling bibliophiles since it opened last year.

It originally opened in Tokyo, but its surge in popularity led its owners to create a second book-hotel in Kyoto.

Bunks are under $ 50 a night and come with a lamp, an outlet, a privacy curtain, and storage space for your personal belongings.

You also have access to a huge selection of books in both English and Japanese, a communal living space, robes, and free WiFi.

There’s also a cool bar where weary traveler’s can booze up while reading a good book.

The Tokyo location only offers up 12 beds, while the Kyoto hostel, which opens on December 2nd, provides up to 20.

If you’re a book-loving traveler or just want a quiet, homey single-bunk hostel experience on the cheap, you should definitely check it out next time you’re in Japan. (h/t mymodernnet)
