Get ready for some good old fashioned drive-in movie fun. First, stop at Il Bambino, which took the panino tradition from the old country and worked hard at making it better using local produce and carefully baked breads. Now you can enjoy their sandwiches, stuffed with everything from mac and cheese to porchetta, or their crostini with toppings from truffle egg salad and shaved speck to chorizo, apricot butter, and goat cheese.

After your dinner, drive into The Bel Aire Diner, an old school diner that has turned their parking lot into a drive-in movie theater and hosts small screenings of classic films like The Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Princess Bride with themed menus. Their social media often announces upcoming screenings, and a schedule of events is listed on their website, where tickets are available for purchase.
