Tonight I hit up Movies in the Park with a friend of mine. I’d never actually been to one, and it was a lot of fun, though there were lots of noisy pre-teens.
I was really impressed with the number of vendors there. They had Dog of Nashville, Ben & Jerry’s, and Cici’s Pizza, but I had to roll with Mas Tacos, which aren’t exactly cheap, but are totally awesome. It took a couple of minutes to get mine because they had to MAKE the tortillas. It doesn’t get fresher than that.
I found that while the festivities all started at or before 7pm, the actual movie didn’t start until 8. During that hour there were little crafts for kids, food to be eaten, and prizes to be given out. Things you could have won: Harry Potter midnight screening tickets, Frist tickets, the Jonas Brothers 3D DVD, and tickets to the Bluegrass Underground’s 4th of July concert. Alas, I did not win a thing.
All said and done, I had a pretty good time tonight. I was impressed that I could actually see AND hear the movie, and it seems like the people running it have it down to an art form. There’s only one movie left: Mean Girls, which is showing next week. I love that movie, so I might have to go back for more…
