First Movie Night of 2016: The Breakfast Club
Last Friday night, many of the usual crew hoofed it up the closed-off driveway to the Roediger House to enter my most favorite of summer events: Movies Under the Stars. The evening was picture-perfect, crystal clear, just the right temperature, occasional slight breezes, a limited number of passing motorcycles and mopeds, and no sirens to drown out the sound.
On the movie bill that evening: The Breakfast Club, a film that I might have only seen one other time since it first came out back in 1985 (other than the original run at the theatre). It really is good.
I also try to have some good snacks on hand whenever the Roediger House hosts an outdoor movie night. On the first one of the season, back on June 10th, the shareable item was a few plates of fresh-made Doubletree-style chocolate chip cookies. They're mighty hard to beat.
