Fun Find Friday

September 25, 2015

Location: The Landing, Disney Springs

I remember back in the early 1990s, either McDonald's or Burger King had a special promotion where you could purchase a meal and receive a VHS for one of the Indiana Jones films for an additional price. My family first watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade due to the promotion and I was instantly mesmerized by the famed archeologist. In May of this year, it was announced that a bar would be opening up in Disney Springs and it would be themed around Indiana Jones. I was instantly ready for it to open so I could get an Indiana Jones fix while in Disney Springs.

I'm happy to say this past Tuesday, Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar officially opened and the theming is extremely well done. I know what some of you are thinking: Who on earth is Jock Lindsey? If you think back to the start of Raiders of the Lost Ark you'll surly remember the famous boulder scene where Indy barely escapes certain death. Shortly after, our hero runs to a seaplane where a pilot is waiting for him. The pilot is none other than Jock Lindsey who, as story goes, crash landed at Disney Springs back in 1948 and opened up his bar seven years later.

Inside the bar you can find various artifacts that Jock has collected throughout the years during his adventures (some with Indiana Jones and others without). More importantly, while in the bar we can find several references to the Indiana Jones films, The Rocketeer, Star Wars, The Adventurers Club, and many others. This week we will be taking a look at the first Indiana Jones film I ever saw though, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

During the film, Indiana Jones and his dad, Henry Jones, get caught by Nazis and are tied up in a chair while the Nazis ride off to try and retrieve the Holy Grail. The two Jones boys try to conjure up an escape and do so by having Henry reaching into Indiana's pocket and taking out his lighter. The lighter falls to the ground and starts a fire.

While in Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar, if you take a look behind the bar itself you will notice a shelf on the left hand side with various bottles on it. In front of those bottles you will find a small white object with a four-leaf clover on it. This is the lighter that was featured in the actual film!
