A night at the movies with your Parks and Rec

A night at the movies with your Parks and Rec

Dinner and a movie, that’s most people’s prototypical idea of a good evening. There used to be a time when you could actually do both at the same time, and not even have to leave the comfort of your car’s driver seat. I’m talking about drive-in movies.

DC knows how to spend his 4th of July!

  Fourth of July, what a great day! No work, spending time at the pool, and having cook-outs! DC knows that there are more than 80 million cook-outs every year. The majority of them are held on the Fourth of July, and the best part of the cook-outs, besides fireworks, is obviously the food! There’s a 1 […]
