You don’t have to drive all that far to find a drive-in restaurant near you. These 50 eateries are still going strong.
It’s easy to get a vintage feel at a drive-in, but it’s much harder to actually get a vintage price. At Ammons Drive Inn & Dairy Bar in Waynesville, North Carolina, you can still get a cheeseburger for just $2. A side of fries will cost $1.75. It doesn’t end there. You can get a chicken finger dinner with fries, coleslaw and a roll for $7.95, a 5-ounce flounder dinner for $8.25, and a corn dog for just $1.35. If you still have room after all that, you can get the cobbler, with two rotating flavors nightly.
The Red Heifer: A speech pathologist in Texas was asked to sign a contract addendum affirming that she would not boycott Israel during the term of her contract with the state. She refused. Her contract was not renewed. She had been with the school district for nine years and is now suing over violations of her freedom of speech. At the University of Michigan, controversy arose after a professor declined to write a reference letter for a student intending to study abroad in Israel. He cited his political beliefs and practice of BDS as his reason. The university disciplined him, revoking his annual raise and cancelling his planned sabbatical. The American Association of University Professors, an organization which explicitly does not endorse BDS on the grounds that academic boycotts violate the principles of academic freedom, criticized the university’s response. Civil rights activist Angela Davis was slated to receive an award from the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, until it was withdrawn after BCRI received complaintsabout Davis’s outspoken support for BDS.
