And just like that, it’s Summer. It’s time to slow down and take it all in. To enjoy life with family and friends. To live large while the livin’s easy.
How do we love summer? Let us count the ways.
1. School’s out.
For some lucky kids, no school means staying up late and sleeping in. For everyone, it means no homework, no tests and way less stress. Breathe in and say it with us now: “Ahhhhh.”
Warm sun, cool water and weird tan lines? Yes, please. Whether you’re headed to the beach or just spending a few days laying out by the pool, there’s nothing better than taking a little time off to reboot.
3. Seasonal sips.
There’s something about summer drinks that are just extra-fun, and at Grub, we’ve got more than our fair share (#shamelessplug). There’s the Five Dollar Rita (Sauza Silver Tequila, orange liqueur, orange and fresh lime juice), the Patron Mango Rita (Patron Silver Tequila, Patron Citronage Mango and fresh lime juice), our Back Porch Punch (Bacardi rum and fresh juices), our seasonal housemade sangria and the Peach Martini (Deep Eddy Peach vodka, pineapple and lime juice with a hint of jalapeno.)
And did we mention that Tequilatopia is happening July 15th – August 15th? And that means one wonderfully long month of $5 ritas! And by ‟$5 ritas” we mean all Grub Ritas. Refreshing, right?
Who doesn’t love things that go boom? Come July 4, we’re all about those amazing pyrotechnic displays. The sights, the sounds — even the smells. We seriously can’t get enough.
5. Cooking with fire.
It’s prime backyard BBQ season. Grab some burgers and buns and get the party started. Bonus points for s’mores in the fire pit. (Psst… While we’re talking about the flavors of summer, you’ve only got four more days to run to Grub and grab our Cuban, which comes with caramelized onion mustard, Swiss, ham, citrus-braised pork and pickles on homemade garlic bread for just $6.50, and Bananas Foster Shake topped with sliced bananas and caramel. What can we say? Planned obsolescence isn’t just for smartphones.)
