How to Have the Best Memorial Day Weekend Barbecue

For many people, Memorial Day weekend is the official start to summer (even though the calendar doesn’t catch up until June 21st). While the actual national holiday is in place to honor US servicemen and women who have died, the commemoration usually involves spending time with family and friends, wearing white, and eating outdoors.

How do you plan to spend the last Monday in May? Here are some tips if you want to throw the barbecue bash of the year.

  • Try having your barbecue on Saturday or Monday – Most people celebrate on Sunday. This gives them Saturday and Monday as travel days. But if you have close neighbors, that can make you feel like there are strangers at your party. A Sunday barbecue increases the likelihood that there won’t be as many nosy neighbors checking out your party from theirs.
  • Create a batch cocktail – When you think about a backyard bash, you probably envision the beer flowing like water. But what if there are guests who are not into beer? A batch cocktail is a great way to offer a second refreshing beverage option with a unique flavor profile to fit the meal and season.
  • Have it catered – If you really want to impress your guests and still have time to enjoy the weekend yourself, check out the barbecue catering menus from Caterman Catering.
