Every second Saturday of the month (which is this Saturday!), head over to the Belcourt Theatre for a screening of a select film with their 16mm projector. What makes this event different from any other film at the Belcourt is that it’s outside with the projector pointing at the back wall of the Theatre. So bring your chairs, blankets and snacks and enjoy a great movie. Movies start just after sunset and admission is free.
August 14 – The Graduate
September 11 – Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Located in Hillsboro Village, McDougal’s has got some of the best chicken in town. The place is small but has a great outdoor patio, perfect for munching on perfectly cooked chicken tenders. You can chose from a variety of ways to have them cooked, such as grilled or fried, and served with a variety of sauces or dips. The french fries are good and in my opinion could be a meal in itself. There’s a new location in Cool Springs now as well.
Open daily, 7am-9pm

Located in the heart of Hillsboro Village, this little store is eclectic and fun. It’s full of neat trinkets, clothing, linens, art, knick-knacks, jewelry and more. Pangaea opened its doors in 1987 and has become a staple in the Village area. When it first opened, it sold mostly vintage clothing and Guatemalan imports. Its selection has grown since then and it’s always easy to find unique gifts for friends and family here.
