Happy Labor Day weekend!

Labor Day Weekend Menu

Whether you want to admit it or not, Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer (*tears*). Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September, and many people go away to the beach or lake, or have a BBQ with family and friends. In fact, Labor Day is the third most popular holiday for barbequing, following July 4th and Memorial Day[1].

Before we get into the menu, we thought it was interesting that:

–  The first U.S. Labor Day was celebrated in NYC on September 5, 1882[2].
–  Oregon was the first state to make Labor Day a holiday in 1887[2].
–  During peak hot dog season (Memorial Day and ending on Labor Day), Americans consume an average of seven billion hot dogs, or 818 hot dogs every second[3].
