Flash Mingle: BBQ & PotLuck at the South Drive-In Theater-Columbus, Ohio

  • Jun 27, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

For those of you who use to go to the Drive-in movies every summer with your families it is time to go this year with your Singles Mingles family! For those who have never been you need to try this at least once in your life... it's a blast! What to expect: A good time on a summer night with friends and a lot of fresh air. We will be sitting together with our lawn chairs outside. There is really no way to be sure we can all park next to each other but I will try to keep you posted to the general area that we are all parking. Keep in mind that on busy nights, they split the lots in half, with the cars on one half of the theater, and minivans, small pickups, and SUV's on the other side. The movies play list will be posted the Tues before the event. There are two movie screens each playing two movies so there should be at least one good movie playing that night. The first movies start around dusk and will last about 2 hrs then the second movies will start. If you plan on staying for two movies you will probably not be leaving for home until around 1:30 A.M.

Please BBQ as close to 7:00 P.M. as possible. All grills must be extinguished and cool by dark (about 9:30). Please bring a dish for everyone to share. This is not going to be fine dinning but more like camping style so please keep that in mind when preparing your dish to pass. They do sell food there if you can't make it until later or if you get hungry later. Heard they have award winning popcorn! Buttered popcorn is $3, $5, $7, pizza slices 2 for $4, french fries $2 and $4, hot dogs $2.50, cheeseburgers $3.50, nachos $4, candy $2.50, ice cream $2, soft pretzels $2, Pepsi products $2.50, Jolly Rancher drinks $2, Monster $3, and bottled water $2. Also, please take your trash back home with you.

What to Bring: A lawn chair, a blanket, bug spray, a portable grill (if you have one), charcoal, your own meat for grilling, your own drinks, a dish to pass(share) and your own dinning ware. You may want to bring a portable radio so you can hear the movie.

What if it Rains: The drive-in still plays in the rain, however, we plan on sitting outside so we will just go somewhere else inside instead! More will be posted on this if it looks like it's going to rain that night.

How Much?: The admission price is $9.00 for ages 12 and older. Visa, MasterCard, and debit cards accepted. Contact Info: Phone (614)[masked]

It should just be a relaxed summer evening and a lot of fun! Please share any ideas you may have. I have never been to the drive-in here so I am very open to suggestions!

    Hi Shari & Sharon. some brief unsolicited advice. file under lessons learned the hard way (ask Steve!) re. salads: lettuce wilts (badly) in an hour or two in high temp. & humidity. I made a huge salad a couple weeks back, and it was totaled. (just sayin- ) :)

    June 26, 2014

    • Angie J

      Thanks, Bill for the salad advice. The salad will be out just during the dinner/grilling portion and will not be left out afterward. We will keep just the munchies out for the long hall.

    I am excited about this outing, too! It is an awesome idea!! Still pondering about what to bring! Might opt for easy this time - like a veggie tray? I just won't have time to cook!

      Sounds good Shari.

      June 26, 2014

    • Angie J

      Shari, the veggie tray is a good idea. It's hard to find time to prepare something when we are all working tomorrow.

      June 26, 2014

  • Susan

    Angie and I are grilling. I am bringing the fixings for Somores to share. Also some 3bean salad to share.

    I am really excited. Never did a cook out at the drive in before. Im making a lettuce salad (for us dieters) and a taco dip w/ taco chips to share.

    Here are the movie choices: Screen 1: Transformers 4 & 22 Jump Street
    Screen 2: How to Train Your Dragon & Malificent.
    I vote for Screen 1.

    June 24, 2014

    • Steve H.

      I have heard 22 Jump Street is excellent. That is my vote.

      Tamara we will find more updated music next time so more of us will try to sing. So many of us will be so disappointed if you don't give us another great show:-D

      Yeah, right, Tamara! I will believe that when I see it! I can't help but believe you will somehow get into that movie screen at the drive-in and become the lead actress of the movie!!
