I forgot that I had promised Jenni a date night last night. So even though I felt like death I swallowed some Imodium, loaded up Percy in the car, and off we went to The Big Mo.
After less than 45 minutes of driving from Augusta buried among peach trees in Monetta South Carolina is The Big Mo. It’s a 2 screen drive in showing double features and I love the place. The total cost of Jenni and I to get in was $14 (they let Percy in free). We pulled in and parked in the last row because even though we were there and hour before showtime the place was packed. We sat there for an hour socializing and answering questions about Percy while we waited on the movie. Percy seemed to love every minute of it. Of course he loves doing anything when it means he isn’t left alone.
I’ll admit I was a little worried about how good the viewing experience would be cause sitting there looking at the screen all I was thinking about was how small it looked. As soon as the sun went down and the movie started playing I didn’t give it another thought. Sitting there with my wife cuddled up to me and my dog snoring in the back seat I couldn’t imagine a better way to watch a movie.
We left before the 2nd feature because I was still feeling bad which I hate but I have already promised Jenni we would go back in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully we can take the nieces and nephews.
I now understand why my parents used to talk about going to the drive-in so much. If you are trying to make plans for a weekend I highly recommend going to The Big Mo.
