Summer, please don't go!
Find time for that drive-in movie, a delicious summer recipe or outdoor exercise while summer’s still with us!
The all-American drive-in movie theater got a big second look this year! Though the U.S. had 4,000 drive-in’s in the 1950’s, today there are just over 300 -- but it’s nice to see they’ve gained new life given the circumstances. Enjoyed one yet? NBC’s “Today” show took a wistful look at drive-ins and how they’re bringing people together while we need to stay apart. Check out this list of drive-in theaters around the U.S. if you can pay a visit, keeping in mind others may have popped up in temporary spots near you due to the pandemic.
Whether we want to admit it, summer's soon winding down -- though with the year we’ve been through, we should’ve earned double the summer months! BBC Good Food shares dozens of yummy summer recipes for sweets & entrees to keep the vacation vibes going. Try a healthy summer salad, a quick recipe for easy seafood tacos and enjoy what the Beeb calls “a boozy grown-up treat”: gin & tonic ice lollies...that’s British-speak for “popsicles.”
Few sports scream summer like tennis & the U.S. Open is going forward in New York City Aug. 31-Sept. 13, though with no fans due to evil COVID. The U.S. Tennis Association wants to help you you feel your best for tennis...or just life! Check out their great flexibility warm-ups for tennis or any activity and tips on sleeping better & snacking smarter, including healthier snack combos than reaching for the cookies & chips. And after all the healthy stuff, raise a glass in honor of the tournament with the U.S. Open cocktail of choice from Marie Claire (and other fun cocktail recipes from famous sporting events).
