Now you can actually eat at Sonic. Tomorrow is the grand opening of the drive-in in Peabody, with Sonic starting regular hours (until 2 a.m.) on Thursday, Aug. 27. It's the first branch in New England.
What to have? An extra-long chili cheese Coney? Tots? Ocean Water (blue coconut syrup in Sprite -- sounds terrible)? Some crazy-flavor slush? Sonic claims to have more than 168,000 drink combinations, but this blog entry says the number is actually much greater.
I've never been. What are your favorite things to order?
