SLK NW Night at the Drive Ins!

12 SLKs participated in one of our few annual events, the SLK Night at the Drive In!
We had an ideal Seattle summer evening, one which folks from the south have been heard to say "wow, this is just like being outside with air conditioning".
No humidity or bugs and temps in the 70s...

We met in Seattle at a Starbucks and set off on a scenic drive over and along Lake Washington through Medina, past Bill Gates' street and stopped at the Medina store for adult movie beverages.

7 of us arrived at Burgermaster in Bellevue for classic outdoor dining in our cars with car hops delivering our food.
4 more SLKs joined us there.

After dinner a few of SLKs made their leave and we picked up another for the drive south to the Valley 6 Drive In theater to see Brad Pitt opening weekend in Inglourious Basterds.
Another SLK joined us while waiting in line.

We were at the head of the line and therefore scarfed prime spots in the center of the theater.
After dusk the adult beverages came out and we all settled in, tops down, to enjoy the movie.

We caused a stir with onlookers giving compliments and asking questions.
The best was "umm are you, like, all friends or something?"
How apropos to hear this at the "Valley Theater" - do you suppose this means she was a... Valley Girl...?

We all had a great time and can hardly wait until next summer for a repeat!

Anything we can think of that's fun...!

Next year we plan on a trip to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
Maybe we can even hook up with some new Cali friends we make at the Retreat !
