If you’ve taken all the virtual tours you can and watched all 400+ episodes of Bob Ross’ The Joy of Painting, you’re probably at a loss for what to do next. Luckily, some restaurants around the nation have taken to turning their parking lots into drive-in movie theaters for family-friendly entertainment. Now, Yankee Stadium is following that lead.
This summer, cruise on over to Yankee Stadium for drive-in movies, concerts and more, all thanks to the Uptown Drive-In Experience!
The Summer Experience You Won’t Want to Miss
The Uptown Drive-In Experience will feature live performances, movies, carside dining and games every weekend for those homebodies getting a little tired of home. Each performance will take place on a raised stage in Yankee Stadium’s parking lot, and patrons can just drive up to get their groove on with dinner delivered by local street vendors. Audio will be broadcasted to car radios, just like the good ol’ days, and family-friendly brunches will be served on Saturdays and Sundays.
The festival is hosted by MASC Hospitality Group, who closed up shop on the Bronx Beer Festival and Bronx Night Market due to COVID-19 concerns.
In an interview with Time Out, MASC Hospitality said, “Since we were planning on having the Bronx Night Market, the Bronx Beer Festival and Uptown Epicure Festival running this summer, which was supposed to start in May, we already had a lot of great options available. Everyone is so excited about the possibility of connecting sooner [at this new experience] than initially planned.”
