Lift the Lid on Grilling Season with a Relaxing Weekend BBQ


The Indy 500 is about to be raced. Schools are closing, swimming pools are opening, and grilling season is officially underway.

We invite you to try our menu for a relaxing backyard BBQ. Chunky guacamole & ice cold beer get things going. Burgers sizzling on the grill, smoky grilled corn on the cob and make-ahead chilled side salads keep the afternoon casual and fun.

Add a build-your-own burger bar, with lots of topping choices, so everyone can customize their burgers. Put out a tub of ice cold watermelon to cool off these warm summer days! Finish this classic backyard grill menu with blueberry cake or rich peach tart and wash it all down with a refreshing iced green tea lemonade.
