Flashback to 1985: a former TV personality is president, Back to the Future captivates audiences and shopping malls are centers for American youth culture. Though malls are closing at rapid rates today, the Del Monte Shopping Center retains its popularity among teens for serving as a backdrop for future #ThrowbackThursday group photos. There are always cool ways to spend time whether it’s at restaurants ranging from budget-friendly Dametra to the casually chic Lalla Grill, retailers that offer your next fresh outfit or a calming comic book, and the Century Cinemas with movies both of the moment and a few throwback screenings thrown in.
