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.
Sunday, June 19 is the day we honor dads with Father’s Day. From changing diapers and holding onto your first two-wheeler bike to loaning you the car keys and teaching you to change a tire, many of us would be lost without the fundamental skills imparted to us by our dads. For such a unique guy, a traditional gift just won’t do. Whether your dad will be golfing, fishing, mowing the lawn or watching the game on Father’s Day, there’s always time for food!
The weekend we’ve all been waiting for is finally here—Memorial Day weekend—a.k.a. the official kick-off to summer! Whether you are hosting a cookout or attending a family or friend’s, grilling burgers on Memorial Day is a time-honored tradition. In fact, the burger is the most popular barbecued food on Memorial Day. And since May is also National Hamburger Month, there’s even more reason to be grilling burgers of all varieties this weekend!
