Watching it on the deck of an aircraft carrier. Seriously! And it's the film's 25th anniversary to boot! And it's Memorial Day weekend -- which means it's Fleet Week. Score, score, score!
Alexis, the French guy I met on Match, joined the Intrepid Air, Sea & Space Museum. As a member, he was eligible for advance tickets to the museum's popular summer movie series. When we met up at 7, the line was impossibly long, but he had picked up tickets (and sent me this cute pic) last Saturday.
The setting couldn't be better...watching the sun set, checking out all the planes on deck, and seeing the city skyline light up for the night.
I'm not sure I've seen Top Gun in 15 years, but it was amazing how much of it I still remembered -- largely due to the fact my friend Amanda and I watched the beach volleyball scene so many times we wore out the VHS tape.
Not sure Alexis and I are really a "match," but he is a true gentleman and a pleasant date. It was one of those perfect summer nights when you feel so lucky to be outside in the warm breeze -- a great way to kick off the summer!
