My Idea of the Week!

Posted on: June 20, 2007

So, it’s the summer, which means school’s out and you have a lot more free time on your hands. The summer months can be a little tricky when it comes to drinking. Not that I’m a pessimist, but here is the bad news the long summer days and lack of structure give way to more opportunity for underage drinking. The good news is, there’s tons of stuff to do over the summer that doesn’t involve drinking! That’s why I’m starting these “Idea of the Week” entries. Every Tuesday, I’ll give you an idea of something fun you can do this summer. This week’s idea: host a movie night!

Everyone knows that summer is THE season for movies, but sometimes it can be more fun to stay in and watch a classic than go out and spend $10 on a movie you may not even like. Take advantage of your local video store or online rental service and host a movie night for your friends. You can do a marathon of your favorite star’s films or your favorite series, or have a themed night with classic summer flicks or comedies. Invite over a few friends, make popcorn or bake some cookies, and throw on the movies. It can be as big or as small as you want it’s totally up to you!

Here in DC, we have what’s called “Screen on the Green” where you can go watch movies for free out on the National Mall; it’s one of my favorite things to do over the summer. There are similar events all across the country. Do a quick Google search or call around to see if your town has one and check it out! If not, see if you can organize a group of people to approach your local recreation department about starting one of your own.

If you have any tips or ideas for a movie night, post them here so other people can see. And be sure to tell me how your movie night goes!

Do you have an idea for a future “Idea of the Week”? Send me a message and you might just see your idea right here on my blog! Have fun!

That’s all for now,
