An evening with our son and daughter-in-law at the Alamo Drafthouse. They have the most interesting old movie clips before the main movie, this one dating back to the early talkies.  If you have never been to one of these places, there is a long bench wide enough that acts as your table, and this runs all along in front of the seating, and a menu and order slips at each seat where you can order meals and beverages.  There is enough room between your bench and the seat in front for a waiter to come by and pick them up, and delivers soon after.  The seats are also staggered enough that you don't block the view of the people behind you, or disturb the people in front.  It took me a while to get used to having something delivered after the movie had started and I wasn't sure I liked it that much, but now after several meet-ups with son and daughter-in-law at one of their favorite movie theaters, I find it part of a very enjoyable experience.
