Stranded at the Drive-Ins

At the Drive-Ins they are having a "Retro Experience" and playing old-style movies each Saturday Night over a few months!

It was so much fun watching Grease at the drive-ins (even though I had just watched it 2 weeks prior lol)! There were so many vintage cars, hot rods and rockabilly people everywhere. It was such a fun night.

Waiting for the movie to begin

There is also a retro diner to purchase all your snacks. It has great food with a retro atmosphere!

It was such a ridiculously retro night. I would recommend it to everyone who would love to experience the retro lifestyle! I already booked to see American Graffiti in a few weeks time, which is another movie that I love. I will let you know how it went.


The end of Grease.

Have you been to the drive-ins lately? Let me know, I would love to hear about your experience.

Back Soon…..

Elvis in concert…. The Wonder of You

I had the wonderful opportunity to see Elvis in concert. Yes, I know I would have to had to step back in time, but “The Wonder of You: Live” did just that. The Philharmonic Orchestra accompanied filmed concerts delivered by Elvis back in the day.  This concert at times made you think he really was singing on the stage. It was brilliant! You could not help but sing along to all the wonderful tunes.

The audience was full with Elvis impersonators, rockabillies, the older generation and the younger generation. There was so many quiffs & 50s skirts!  It was a huge mix of Elvis admirers.


The songs that were performed were:

It was a wide variety of Elvis songs played spanning over his entire career. You couldn’t help but dance and sing along!


The master of the ceremony was one of Elvis’ best friends, Jerry Schilling, and he would talk about Elvis’ life and present old photos. It was really interesting!

If you ever have the opportunity to go to this show, it is really worthwhile. Let me know if you have been, and what you thought! I would love to hear from you.

Back Soon…..
