El Paso is no stranger to television. We've been featured on many shows, one of them being "The Texas Bucket List". Many of our landmarks & restaurants have been mentioned on the show for years & they're making another stop to El Paso.

The 18th season of The Texas Bucket List started February 18th & according to the El Paso Times, The Blue Moon Drive-In movie theater is the next El Paso stop that will be featured on the next episode premiering this Sunday (Shane McAuliffe loves the horror art & so do I). The other locations featured will be Green Chili Willy's in Amarillo, TX & Beneventi’s Italian in Mingus. You can see the teaser video they published on their Facebook account:

The Blue Moon was closed during the pandemic but it reopened last year in June. For those who haven't been to The Blue Moon, it's located at 512 San Marcial & is part of Monteleone's Haunted Motel & Restaurant (That was featured on the show back in 2019). Despite being called a "drive-in", people can come sit down at picnic tables & watch movies outdoors.
