There are times when it seems that Guy Fieri's voice is heard more often in my house than mine is. That's cool with me, as we are unabashed "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" fans, and have been since the show came along in 2007.
I sometimes feel badly for those who are too young to have experienced the fun of a drive-in movie. At one time, Rockford had several drive-in movie theaters to choose from, but those days are long gone. Now, the closest drive-in that I could find is 39 miles away in McHenry. Don't despair, though. There's a great alternative right here in town.
