Party Like It’s 1776

As purveyors of life, liberty, and the everlasting pursuit of happiness, we love a good party.

When it comes to Independence Day party planning, we follow John Adams’ letter to his wife Abigail pretty closely. John wrote, “The Second Day of July 1776… ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”



Adams was pretty spot-on here, minus the addition of a good, old-fashioned cookout with friends and family. And you can’t have a cookout without a fine-tuned grill and all the essentials — the perfect hamburger, a brilliantly-topped hot dog and a classic grilled cheese. Who says grilled cheese isn’t cookout material?


So, cue up the playlist, get the illuminations ready and get to grilling.
