I'm Looking For a Weekend Getaway
I want to take the wife somewhere out of LA this weekend for her birthday, and we're looking for something interesting and different. Probably just a one-night stayover somewhere, on Saturday night.
The coast is too tourist-swamped, San Diego's full of Comic-Conners, and we're on something of a budget. I'd also not like to drive more than two hours.
Just thought I'd throw it out there, and see if anyone had any tips about somewhere cool to investigate. Post a comment here, or shoot me an e-mail.
Yeah, DARK KNIGHT made over $158 for its first three days. I'm an idiot for not seeing that coming.
I didn't see DARK KNIGHT -- I hate lines, and winding up in a crappy seat -- so the wife and I went to see HELLBOY 2 instead. Entertaining, and solid enough for what it is. DARK KNIGHT completely swamped it though; even though HELLBOY 2 probably got a little bounce from people shut out of sold-out DARK KNIGHT shows, it still dropped 70% over the weekend.
MAMMA MIA made $27 million, though expect that to drop fast, as word-of-mouth has been fairly dire.
