Dinner + a Movie = Date Night

Heading Out on a Day-Date Excursion for July!

With summer in full swing, it’s time to take a little time off during the week so that you can enjoy a special day with your significant other. Venture to Wentzville for some of the best barbecue this side of Kansas City and head to a fabulous theater that seems to be sitting “on top of the world” just a few moments away to catch the perfect Matinee!

Duke’s BBQ Shack

Let's start off with lunch! Where the crossroads of America meet, get ready for some of the best barbecue you've ever tasted, combined with an incredibly awesome atmosphere at Duke’s BBQ Shack. Open seven days a week for your dining pleasure, Duke's has some of the most incredible barbecue I've ever had the joy to partake of, on either side of the river. I suggest that you start off with the number one ordered item on their menu, The Dirty MustacheThis barbecue creation comprises the perfect combination of their smoked brisket, smoked sausage, beer cheese sauce and in-house made onion straws. Or, if you’ve been hankering for a burger like no other, you must order The Duke Burger, served with their delicious cowboy fries on the side. If your ultimate plan is to enjoy more than one of Duke’s award-winning smoked meats, then you must go for The Duke Plate, making way for you to experience the joy of three of their smoked meats, along with a two-bone rib and two of their delectable sides too—all for only $20.

B&B Wentzville Tower 12 Theatre

In my world, there is nothing better than seeing a movie during the day, so now that your tummy is full, lets head just a few minutes south to enjoy a summer blockbuster that you’ve been dying to see at the B&B Wentzville Tower 12 Theatre.

Get ready to enjoy a matinee movie experience like none you have experienced before. Whether you want to enjoy a drink before or during the show from their bar located in the lobby, or if you are looking forward to viewing a film on one of their Grand Screens while you nestle into the comfort of their reclining seats, the B& B Wentzville 12 Tower Theatre will definitely make your matinee movie-going experience one that I promise you won't soon forget!

And now that the stage has been set for one of your best “day dates” ever, what shall we see? 

Might I suggest one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, with the release of Quentin Tarantino’s…

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Hitting theaters July 26 with a star-studded cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino and Kurt Russel, Tarantino’s ninth film drops us into Los Angeles, circa 1969, at the end of the Golden Age of Hollywood. As we enter into the life of struggling actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), we see they are trying to make their way within an ever-evolving film industry—with as much flair and exuberance as they can muster—even though it appears time is not on their side. With multiple storylines throughout, like many of Tarantino's previous films, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the "must-see" film this July that you definitely won't want to miss!
