What I Love about July

Movies in the Park


It felt like summer would never come back and now that is in full swing here in DC, we are trying to soak up as much of it as we can. That is to say when it is not blazing hot outside. But when the sun goes down, one of our favorite things to do in the city is catch a flick out in the summer air.

DC has so many parks and many of them have a summer screen program. Our favorite one to attend is in NoMa ever Wednesday night. There are food trucks, fun music, raffles and prizes and of course a great movie. This summer the theme has been Underdog Heros with movies like The Princess Bride, The Italian Job, The Goonies and Bridesmaids. It has been so fun to grab a bottle of wine, some good food, popcorn and a picnic blanket and watch a movie with friends.

Where ever you live, check your local parks to see if they are offering movies in the park too. I guarantee you will love them! Need some inspiration for you own movie in the park? Here are top picks to make it a Block Bluster night!


 1. Picnic Blanket / 2. Portable Cheese Tray / 3. Boar’s Head Smoked Gouda (the best cheese ever!) / 4. Pack Wine Picnic Tote 

5. Stackable Acrylic Wine Goblets / 6. Candy / 7. BananaGrams (for before the movie starts) / 8. Chocolate Wine (so good!)

9. Popcorn- our favorite come from the food truck Popped Republic here in DC

And for some fun shots of us actually enjoying one of these nights, please excuse the grainy Instagram images:
