It’s totally blasphemous that it’s Monday already. It’s just plain rude! Anyway, I had another busy weekend. I went out for dinner and drinks with friends on Friday. I had a delicious drink that tasted like a Jolly Rancher. On Saturday I finally got to see Erin! We went to the Roger Williams Zoo. There is a zoo that is a lot closer to her house, but we decided to change things up. As much as I like the RWZ, the zoo near Erin’s house is much larger.
We wandered around the zoo for a bit. I took many selfies with flamingos, elephants, and giraffes. The weather was nice, it wasn’t too warm. After the zoo, we had a seriously amazing dinner at this new Mexican restaurant near Erin’s house. I’m still dreaming of the fresh guacamole. They have a guy in the restaurant with a cart, and he makes guacamole right at your table. It is the best guacamole I’ve had. I wish this place was close to me, so I could go back again.
We planned to see the movie Central Intelligence at the drive-in movie theater near her house. So we gathered up camping chairs, blankets, bug repellent, and snacks. The movie doesn’t start until about 9pm. But we decided to show up at 7, to scope out a good spot. Turns out, all our prep and getting there 2 hours early was moot. The line to get into the drive-in well over a mile long. WTF?!
I’ve gone to this drive-in about a half dozen times over the years, and never had to wait in a crazy line. We think the line was for Finding Dory, which was on the first screen. That is why we planned to see Central Intelligence on the other screen. Thankfully there is also a movie theater near her house, so we tossed the snacks into a purse and snuck them into the theater. Central Intelligence was really funny! I love The Rock, so I probably would have seen it even if it was bad.
PS. It turns out, even if we did get to the drive-in early enough, it was too chaotic to enjoy the movie. My co-worker’s brother tried to go, and had to leave the movie. The drive-in was completely unorganzied and crazy this past weekend. We dodged a bullet there!
