Happening This Weekend 8/30/2019

Happy Labor Day Weekend! As we acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of American workers, let's not forget that not everyone is off this weekend, so give any business you see open this weekend a super high-five!

If you're like a lot of locals in Beacon who have hit the road, and you are itching to do the same for a mini-staycation or just something different, get into your car and hit up these drive-in movie theaters that are open through September! Several are dog-friendly, and the menu of one movie drive-in has our writer Izdihar Dabashi totally distracted by the food (a hand-spun shake with flavors such as baklava, anyone?).
Sponsored by Antalek & Moore for car insurance.
