Outdoor Movie Nights in Bellingham

It’s outdoor movie season! There are three spots to watch movies outside in Bellingham this summer.

The Pickford Film Center shows movies atop the Parkade, 1300 Commercial St. Fairhaven Outdoor Cinema happens in the Village Green at 10th and Mill. Artifacts Wine Bar, a newcomer to the outdoor movie game, is showing wine-related films in the Whatcom Museum courtyard at Grand and Flora.

Be sure to check the venue link for additional info on seating, pre-flick entertainment, and concessions. Bear in mind that the movies can’t be shown until it’s dark out, so take starting times as estimates.

Radlers and Shandies

On the one hand, National Radler Day is a bullshit made-up holiday. On the other hand, radlers – also known in the English-speaking world as shandies – are delicious. They’re basically beer spritzers.

The original shandy is usually described as half lager and half lemonade – but remember, in England “lemonade” means Sprite. The Wikipedia entry lists a ton of variations. I want to try Singapore’s Kip Lin, half lager and half tonic. Sounds criiiisssp.

Cheap Wine Chronicles: Creacion Reserva Sauvignon Blanc, 2014

by June Hathaway

I’ve bought this wine at least twice before. Or at least, I have definitely purchased some kind of white wine creacionfrom the Chilean vintner Creacion. It shows up at the Grocery Outlet often, but not so often that I can remember what I thought of it the last time. All I know is that I have taken it to parties and not been asked to leave.

The wine has a light golden color and a crisp, somewhat sharp bouquet. It’s quite dry, with a mineral taste somewhere between tart apples and rubbing alcohol. It really isn’t very good. I’ve obviously been buying it because I like the label. Hosts, please accept my apologies and assurance that I’ll do better next time.

$4.99 at the Gross Out.
