From libraries, to concerts, drive-in movies, and LAN parties The Tech Dads discuss things to do with the kids.  Libraries are a great resource that goes well beyond books and, in fact, rent out music, games, museum passes, and even iPads.  Chris reveals he's never been to a roller rink, and Buddy's never been to a LAN party.  Matt spends some time trying to figure out the SnapChat interface. SHOW LINKS: Anyone looking for a drive-in movie theater can go to google maps and type in "drive-in movie theater" if they want to find one!
