As Joe-Bob Briggs Always Says...

"The drive-in will never die." Not in Las Vegas, anyway, where the West Wind All-Digital Drive-In keeps the carloads coming in the age of high definition. Showtimes on its five screens currently start at 8 p.m. Tuesday is Family Fun Night with admission of $5 per person (normally $7), although children ages 5-11 get in for a buck and younger kids get in free. At those prices, what better way to entertain that passel of young'uns? It's located at 4150 W. Carey Ave., just east of Rancho and behind the Fiesta. (Which reminds me of the Fiesta Drive-In back in El Paso, Texas. Although it ended its days screening X-rated movies. Which was rather awkward for anyone building subdivisions in the hills behind it. I once interviewed two city councilmen who dared each other to stand at the entrance polling customers on what they thought of a proposed zoning ordinance, an enterprise that was doomed to failure, as was, sadly, the Fiesta.)
