Above: a (not-so-great) pic I took of the Beverly Drive In in Hattiesburg.
Av and I were talking this weekend about how much fun it would be to watch a movie at a Drive In. We both went to drive ins when we were little, but it’s been since we were kids that either of us have been to one. I did a little research, and this website has a listing of all Drive Ins (open and closed), state-by-state. There are eleven open in Alabama, six in Georgia, none (!) in Louisiana, and three in Mississippi.
We’re going to try to get to one of them soon. Fun!
Av and I have heard about Leatha’s forever…and we finally got there! The barbecue was great – fabulous, even (although the sauce is much, much too sweet). But the potato salad was real MawMaw-type potato salad. And the pecan pie…..there are not words for that pecan pie!! I’ll be fiddling-around with my own recipe next time just to try to make it somewhere close to Leatha’s pecan pie.
