Commercial Drive-ins and Drive-up Ice Cream and Food Places (Fourth of July 2020)

Coronavirus has made some old entertainments extremely popular again. Drive-in movie theaters and drive-up restaurants are seeing even more business this summer. Two in those categories that are very well known are Moon Township’s Dependable Drive-In and Jerry’s Curb Service in Bridgewater, Beaver County. Other good drive-ups are Page Dairy Mart (4112 E. Carson St., Becks Run) and Glen’s Custard in Springdale (original location) and Lower Burrell. Local ice cream chain gone international, Bruster’s, has 10 locations in the Pittsburgh area including the original location in Bridgewater. Other drive-in movie screens in the region include: Riverside (Vandergrift), Evergreen (Mt. Pleasant), Brownsville (Grindstone), and Starlight (Butler). So “head out on the highway looking for adventure” in your personal social distancer—a car. (RH)
