How to Spend Your Time During Curfew in El Paso
Congratulations El Paso! If we're going to do something, we're going to do it big! Our COVID numbers are through the roof to the point that we now have a curfew. Remember when you wouldn't listen to your parents and had to be home early every night, if you were allowed to leave at all? Well, that's all of us in El Paso now. If you don't live in El Paso and aren't aware of what's going on here, our COVID numbers are going through the roof. Hospitals are filling up to the point we are having to convert our convention center to a back up hospital to fit everyone.
What are the curfew hours? We aren't allowed to be out from 10pm to 5am. The curfew will be in effect for two weeks and law enforcement agencies are going to be enforcing the curfew and other mandates like wearing masks.
So this begs the question. "What can you do during the curfew hours?" Well, there's the obvious. You could sleep But let's be honest. Halloween is this weekend, and we're even getting an extra hour because we set our clocks back. My recommendation? Watch movies that take place in one setting. Kind of like a bottle episode, but you can watch a movie that's all in one spot. Here are a few recommendations:
- The Sunset Limited - This is a GREAT movie. Samuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones having a conversation about life, death and everything in between.
- 12 Angry Men - You can watch either version of this movie because both are great.
- My Dinner with Andre - I've never actually seen the movie, but I know about it because of Community and Abed's birthday dinner with Jeff. Great episode by the way.
- The Breakfast Club - A classic John Hughes movie about kids who actually show up for detention.
