It’s Almost August??

It is almost August? WOW! “Where did summer go?”, doesn’t even begin to describe how fast this season has gone by. Normally by the first part of August we’re winding down around here. This year, not so much. We have a number of special events in August, as I talked about in my earlier post. We’re focusing a lot of our energy on those events and also considering staying around weekends only in September.

A number of factors affect our decision. First, what will the film line-ups look like? If the pictures are poor, so goes the business. Second, we need to consider CSU’s home football schedule. Saturday afternoon and evening games drastically affect our ability to manage our traffic flow and the stadium lights completely wash out the … Read More »

Super New T’s and Logo Mugs

We’ve waited a long time this summer for our new merchandise to arrive and it’s finally all here! We added some hot new t-shirt colors for both guys and gals and we’re now offering a logo stainless steel beverage mug. These are high quality mugs that really keep your drinks hot or cold. We’ve been using samples for about a month and I’m hooked on my ice blue HTDI mug 🙂 When you purchase a mug we will fill it with the beverage of your choice from our snack bar! (First time only, as we can’t refill outside containers).

Here’s a sneak peek at the mugs and t’s. The t’s are super soft and wash very well. All our merchandise is available in the snack bar and by the end of the month you’ll be able to purchase … Read More »

Movies Change like the Weather Around Here

Wait 15 minutes and the weather and the movies will change…

Just when I think we have something locked down, Whoops, think again! What was once a done deal is now un-done. Grown Ups 2 will not be paired with Turbo on Wednesday, July 17th. Instead the line up looks like this: Screen 1: Turbo with co-hit Despicable Me 2 and Screen 2: Grown Ups 2 with co-hit The Lone Ranger. Then on Friday, July 19th, the only change will be Screen 2 when White House Down will replace The Lone Ranger as the co-hit to Grown Ups 2.

This movie business is strange to say the least. A film company tentatively agrees to one deal, then their pictures draws better than expected and suddenly they won’t agree to terms they had previously agreed … Read More »

Party Central & Giveaway

We had a great time last night hosting the Sisters On The Fly. Their delightful vintage trailers are a hit at the drive-in!

We host a number of groups throughout the season and this year is turning out to be busier than usual. On tap we have 3 birthday parties, 4 groups, several car clubs as well as a preschool group in their school bus 🙂

The CSU campus activities director contacted us asking for a CSU double-feature night in August! WHEW! That could be a few folks 🙂

Last year we had a wedding – on the roof – in the rain, no less. This year brings us another challenge as we host a wedding reception for 150 people!!
Mom and I are really looking forward to this event. Ben and Lea have chosen … Read More »

Happy 4th of July! Winners Announced

Happy July 4th everyone! Hope you are all celebrating with your family and friends this great holiday of our nations’ independence. We are sleeping! Well, obviously I’m not sleeping, but we are taking some time to rest today after our busy night last night. Also, getting re-charged for what looks like a very full weekend.

I watched a bit of Despicable Me 2 last night and laughed until I cried. I didn’t think it could be better than the first one but I was wrong. I LOVE those minions, “hehehehe Bottom” – oh that is hilarious! The minions are featured all throughout the credits as well, so don’t leave early. Great family movie, don’t miss it!

I’m missing my parents this week as they took a short vacation to Canada. Kudos … Read More »
