Well, it is that time of the season. I use to say I like to go to the mall for the holiday entertainment and then do my Christmas shopping at Wal-Mart. This is kind of like that. I thought we would start our trip by stopping at Columbia's Goodwill and then if people want to, we can go to the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Parkade Ave near the mall, but our final shopping destination will be the Columbia Mall. We can stay as a group, or individuals can do what they wish.
At 5:00 pm we can meet in the mall's food court and discuss whether to eat there or go to Olive Garden for dinner (1300 Interstate 70 Dr.). The advantage of eating at the food court would be that there's more variety, it's faster, and if you haven't finished your shopping yet, you can get back to it rather quickly/easily. The advantage of going to Olive Garden is, well...it's Olive Garden! (Got breadsticks?!!) Everyone can decide for themselves what they want to do.
After we eat, we can talk about a movie. Possible movie selections: the second "Hunger Games" movie, "Thor" or "Enough Said". Other suggestions?
