ELEMENTARY MY DEAR CAR: Ever been to an old-fashioned drive-in? If you have yet to experience the magic of watching a movie under the stars in the comfort of your own car, head to West Wind Drive-Ins and see Sherlock Holmes at 7 p.m. The best part? You can talk and laugh as loud as you want. [funcheapSF]
