Drew Barrymore Would Love to Meet You Too

So, you say you wanna meet Drew Barrymore -- have ever since E.T. or maybe since she gave Dave Letterman a birthday surprise? Well, this week you get your chance: She's doing a meet-and-greet at Urban Outfitters in Mockingbird Station on Wednesday. But, of course, it's first come, first served, so how to get served. Well ... wristbands for the how-do will be handed out beginning at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday; Barrymore will stroll the, um, red carpet 'round 7ish. At that time, the folks behind the visit have wrangled quite the perfect li'l stunt: Barrymore, who's in town to promote her directorial debut, the shot-in-Austin roller-grrrl Whip It, will be made an "official" Dallas Derby Devil. Then, at 7:15, the autograph free-for-all will ensure. You've been warned: Bring your own helmet.

Incidentally, one of the best things about Whip It is Andrew Wilson -- right, Bottle Rocket's Future Man. Turns out, he may be the most talented of the Wilson brothers after all.
