Ah, the carefree and fun nature of drive-in movie theaters. The walk (outdoors!) to the concession stand, the double feature with two movies that usually have nothing to do with each other, the craning of the neck to find a good spot to see out of the car windows . . . Unfortunately, we only get to experience the drive-in magic during the summer months but why wait until those days when you can stop by Grumpy’s for Drinky Drive-In year ’round? Every Monday, enjoy half-priced Minnesota beer and wine during the feature films. The films screen outdoors on the patio in the summer and are moved indoors when it’s too cold for even the hardiest Minnesotan to sit outside. You may not be able to drive your car inside the bar, but it sure beats ending up too far away from the outdoor screen. 9 p.m. Free. —RO
