I Thought They’d Be Bigger Rocky Road House Cookies

Stop what you’re doing. Take a deep breath. Watch this video:

Now relax and remember:

  • Pain don’t hurt
  • Nobody ever wins a fight
  • The name’s Dalton

Road House is the classic tale of bouncer meets bar. I mean man meets woman…I mean fist meets throat. Our hero, Dalton, is the ultimate Cooler. His job is to keep the riff-raff out of the bars and boy does he do it well. Dalton is hired to clean up the Double Deuce and get it back into shape but while he’s there, he meets a girl and he meets trouble by the name of Brad Wesley.

Road House movie posterThis movie is one you can watch again and again and again. Road House is philosophical, romantic, action-packed, and dramatic. The soundtrack is like no other and the script is filled with one-liners you’ll be spittin’ out like blood for the rest of your life.

It is highly recommended when you watch Road House for date night that you buy the DVD version. This way you can give the whole movie a complete watch through together once or twice, and then on your third viewing turn on the on-screen commentary. The commentary is hilarious and adds a whole new layer to the already deep movie.

I once had a first date where he brought a DVD of Road House over to my apartment. We started the night by making some cookies and followed that up by awkwardly watching the movie, sitting no more and no less than 6 inches from each other the entire time. And you know what, dear reader? I married that man, and every year on the same day we watch Road House and bake cookies.

So, give Road House and cookies a try. I can’t guarantee it will end up in marriage, but you will have a delicious evening.
