Three Cheers for Summertime!
It’s summertime, and the living is easy. Farewell, sweaters and heavy jackets! Bon voyage, wool socks! See you next winter, puffy winter coat! It’s time for short sleeves, short pants, flip-flops, and plenty of summertime fun.
What are your plans for this summer? Perhaps you’re heading to the coast for a day of kite flying, surfing, sandcastle building, and delicious seafood. Or maybe you’re packing up your camping gear and roughing it for a few days in the great outdoors with friends and family.
You’re probably going to ooh and ah at the fireworks on Independence Day, and perhaps you’ll even help the kids hone their entrepreneurial chops with a good, old-fashioned lemonade stand. Afternoons at the park, touch football, cannonballs off the high-dive, water balloon fights… there’s so much to love about summertime.
It’s Party Time!
Of course, entertaining friends is one of the best things about summer. You can’t go wrong with inviting your favorite people over for tasty food, cold drinks, and some warm weather camaraderie.
What is your BBQ style? We don’t like to brag, but when it comes to summer entertaining, we’ve got some pretty serious skills.
Don’t get us wrong: we’re sure you do, too. Maybe your coleslaw is the stuff of legend, and your burger grilling skills make full-grown men shed tears of pure joy.
