My wife and I hadn’t been on date since the birth of our first child. Spending five weeks focused on feeding, burping and changing diapers can feel a bit like you’re marooned on Baby Island. So we were thrilled that Breyers invited us to a Street Food Cinema screening of Clueless and gave us an excuse to get out of the house. Plus, how often does anyone get the chance to add “Gelato journalist” to his or her resume?
A Sweet Date Night with 'Clueless' and Breyers Gelato
Being new parents, we’re never quite sure how our five-week old will react to a new situation. He’s just starting to make sense of sight and sound, and even the clank of a garbage bag into a trash can make him wig-out.
A big thanks to Breyers and the Blogger Network for sponsoring this post
Street Food Cinema is a drive-in theater except you’re sitting on a lawn instead of your car. Don’t worry, motor vehicles are still involved. Plenty of scrumptious munchies are served up from food truck windows. Plus there are clever companies who know the anticipation that comes with sitting on a lawn waiting for a movie to start can only be satiated with free food samples.
Gelato, for those you who didn’t, like, ace “Dairy Confections 101” is a frothier, richer ice cream with a name that speaks to its Italian culinary heritage. My wife and I tasted the Breyers Strawberry Truffle, Mint Chocolate and Chocolate Caramel. I was all about the chocolate gelato with caramel sauce and chocolate curls. Natch. My better half was sweetin’ on the mint gelato with rich fudge swirl.
Adam said he thought a film like “Clueless” would need starpower to get made today. “It’s the only movie I’ve worked on where the executives took a look at it, didn’t want to change anything and gave me a million more dollars to buy music for the soundtrack,” he admitted. Nicole’s still a total Betty who said she had no idea the whole “suck and blow” scene would turn into something she still hears people yell at her today.
Once the movie started we were a concerned my little one would completely bug out. No worries, he decided to watch another picture screening on the inside of his eyelids for the whole night. Must have been a pretty good plot. And seeing “Clueless” for the first time on well over a decade was pretty tasty. Almost as sweet as a Breyers Gelato Indulgences. Breyers has nine flavors of gelato, which means you’ve pretty much got every genre of film covered with at least one of them. Ergo, date-night dessert at home with a movie just got a whole lot easier.
Then we were Audi. Or at least as Audi as you can be driving a PT Cruiser home.
