Things to bring!

Most important not to forget these items!

Sunscreen, hats, folding lawn chairs, coolers with water, soda and ice, a change of shirt (or buy a new TIKI-INVASION II T shirt!) and a boom box radio with fresh batteries for the movie sound (which tunes in on FM radio). Canopies for shade are great, just weight down the legs with something heavy (gallon jugs of water or sand, barbell plates, cinder blocks) so they don't blow away in the wind and damage someone's head or someone's classic car, and take them down BEFORE the movies start.

Strange as this sounds, a light jacket or blanket is not a bad idea as it can get cool in the late evening at the drive-in. Cameras are permitted.

Bring cash too, we do not accept credit cards but we do have an ATM located inside the snack bar. Remember, if you are buying tickets at the gate they are cash only.

For movie watching, we recommed a "tailgate" style setup with lawnchairs, a blanket, rug or tarp to lay down on the ground and make things cozy, FM radio boom box for the movie sound and a cooler.

And bring ALL your friends who like to have a GREAT time!!

IF YOU ARE BRINGING LIBATIONS:
Please put your favorite libations is DISCREET CONTAINERS such a coke cups, sports bottles, travel mugs, or our plastic tiki mug available at the snack bar. We can not permit open beer cans, beer bottles, or any obvious alcohol container, which may include tiki mugs. We will have a limited amount of soda cups and lids available FREE of CHARGE for this purpose. We apologize for this necessity but keep reading.

The Montclair police will be present for our security which is a very GOOD thing, and even though we are on private property it is a public event which means no open containers allowed. Treat this event exactly like you would a day at the beach or the park. Be cool about drinking alcohol and the security will be cool towards you. If you doctor your soda pop up with something good, be discreet about pouring it and carrying it and everything will be perfectly fine.

Things NOT to bring:

Pets. Alas, Fido will not be very happy on hot asphalt all day and listening to loud music. Besides, we don't have much grass for him to do his business on. Then there is potential barking and biting complaints which neither of us needs.

Open alcohol containers, glass bottles of any kind. (see above!)

Thanks and we'll see you this weekend!

'Vid






Thanks for the info, exactly what I needed!

Folks have been e-mailing me about nearby hotels. We suggest the Best Western Pine Tree on Central Ave in Chino, CA. Very retro feel to the place and rooms start at just $58.

It's not the Ritz Carlton, but we love the loungy/hip vibe of the place and the location is ideal, it's about 2 miles from the drive-in and just a couple of blocks from Honolulu Harry's, a very nice Tiki themed restaurant. Google Best Western Pine Tree Chino.

We did not attempt an affiliated event discount this year so hop online, use your favorite travel website and book your best deal. Last time I checked on hotels.com they did still have availablilty for Saturday night.

I sure hope that you folks on the Left Coast can keep up with the "Original Drive-Invaders" that are coming to LA to show you people how to get "Drive-In Sorry." We will be holding seminars all day long.
All you guys better have cold beer waiting.
See you there,
Laffo

What an awesome event!!

I wish i could go but I'm a little far away unfortunately!

Good to see drive ins are still operating in the US. I saw some pics of the decor that Diablo did when you renovated it - AMAZING! It is definitely on my to-do list when i hit the states.

Look forward to the pics.
