Breakfast , they say, is the most important meal in the day. That's why on the weekends, my wife Kathy and I love going out for breakfast. Not that the Rent kitchen isn't a good one. We can make killer omelets. I make killer pancakes from scratch. But, hey, I don't have to do the dishes when we're out.

So I thought it would be fun to talk about our favorite breakfast spots.

West Michigan Drive-In Theaters – Where are They Now?

Do know what these are?

If you grew up in the 50's and 60's, you remember the Drive-In movies. They were so much fun to go to. You'd pack the family, or pals, into the car and off you'd go for at least a double feature.
