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 the drive in to cater their wedding rehearsal and treat their guests to a movie. How fun is that?
Shortly after Ben and Lea’s wedding, the Northern Colorado Young Professionals are having their night out at the drive-in.
My mom asked me the other day if we were a movie theater or a caterer? When I was growing up my mom was a professional caterer and she use me as her helper. I credit her with my love for cooking and I’ve tried to treat the snack bar as a place where we can offer tasty, quality food, within the drive-in environment. As our fan, Steve Miller put it in a FB post, “They have the best grilled food of any drive in I have been to! Their burgers are seasoned, thick, juicy, and grilled to perfection, served hot off the grill with tons of fresh toppings you can pile on yourself. A huge improvement over what I remember other driver ins serving as a kid, such as paper thin burgers wrapped in foil and sitting for hours on a warmer. It’s more than a theater that serves food, it’s a restaurant that shows movies.”
The apple didn’t fall very far from the tree, I guess. Our family tradition continues as my oldest son, CJ, headed off to culinary school at the Broadmoor Hotel last August.
