Memorial Day Weekend
5 Fab Ways to Enjoy the Good Life this Memorial Day Weekend.
During Memorial Day Weekend, many of us take time to honor our fallen military heroes. We also observe the holiday by spending it with friends and family, acknowledging that our leisure time is thanks to those who fought courageously to secure our way of life. Here are five leisurely ways to spend the Memorial Day Weekend with the help of Town & Country Village.
1. Memorial Day Weekend Backyard BBQ
If you’re having friends over for a cook-out, stop by Town & Country for your supplies. Get great cuts of meat from Omaha Steaks. They have everything you need for a family cookout in packages that include burgers, pork chops, steak burgers, jumbo franks, and even desserts like Caramel Apple Tartlets! Don’t forget about their seafood options like salmon and shrimp.

The Cowboy Long Handled Grilling Tools Set is perfect for grill masters and home cooks with its smooth, natural walnut handle that keeps cool over high heat. Consider upgrading to the Pottery Barn Apron and Pot Holder Set to grill like a pro. Designed with direct input from top chefs, this grilling accessory is made of heavy-duty canvas and natural leather that’ll stand up to open fire cooking season after season.
Adorn the table with festive new entertaining pieces like serving platters and dishware. Head to Williams-Sonoma and browse their outdoor dish and serving set collections. The Sicily Outdoor collection recreates authentic Italian designs on their serving bowls and platters. The scratch-resistant and shatter-resistant melamine are perfect for using outdoors during your Memorial Day Weekend gathering.
2. Dine Out During Memorial Day Weekend
Don’t care to stand in front of a grill for the Memorial Day Weekend celebration? Then head out to eat with the gang at one of our popular dining spots. Savor a delicious brunch at Snooze, where breakfast is made with a delightful twist! Try the Smashed Avocado Benny on an English muffin with fresh, smashed avocado, Parmesan cheese, marinated tomatoes, poached cage-free eggs, and house-made smoked cheddar hollandaise, plus the savory Everything Spice.
Another option is to sit outside on the patio at Café Express. Try their Angus Cheddar Burger, Shrimp Capri Pasta Salad, or the fresh Basil Pesto Chicken. Pair it with a refreshing lemonade and enjoy the last of the Spring weather.
Are you looking to grab a few appetizers for your gathering? Order some shareable dishes or a charcuterie board to-go from Postino. Their Snacky Things menu includes Sweet Potato Wedges, Meatballs, and Goat Cheese options. Wow your guests with one of their delicious boards, like the Chef’s Charcuterie, which comes with prosciutto di parma, Spanish chorizo, salami, whipped feta, and chef’s cheese pick, olive, almond hummus, charred artichoke, blistered sweet pepper, crostini, and lavash bread.
