Every year, we hold a Memorial Day BBQ with a different state theme.

The theme for 2014 is Florida, and we're having Cuban pork roast, black beans and rice, alligator, and Cheeseburgers in Paradise. We'll be playing music from Jimmy Buffett, Gloria Estefan and others. (But no Pitbull!!)

In previous years, we have celebrated:

  • New York (Nathan's hot dogs, corned beef, chopped liver, black and white cookies and Manhattan and Bronx cocktails)
  • Michigan (lots of cherry themed items, coney dogs, Michigan beer)
  • Kentucky (hot browns, burgoo, and of course, mint juleps!)
  • Alabama (NASA, Alabama slammers and that fine Southern cuisine)
  • Virginia (food from our local area, Virginia wines and beers)
