Whether you’re enjoying a delicious barbecue or looking to catch a summertime film, there are always ways to make the experience extra special. Here are a few ways to level up your summer activities.
Make your next summer barbecue extra special by turning it into a fun potluck experience. Not only will this take the load off the hosts, but guests will enjoy learning each other’s signature recipes. To start planning, share an excel spreadsheet with everyone who is attending and have them list what they will be bringing. This way, attendees won’t copy dishes and will know what is needed. For a well-rounded barbecue experience, make sure there are plenty of sides, vegetarian options, fun drinks, and dessert.
Make Your Own Summer Classics
Instead of going out for ice cream or heading to a candy store for fudge, try making delicious summer desserts at home! For a cold treat, there’s no need to invest in a fancy ice cream maker. Instead, give this bag method a try where you place ingredients in a small bag and then put that in a larger bag with ice salt. After shaking vigorously, you will have smooth and creamy homemade ice cream. If you’re a chocolate lover, opt for this classic homemade fudge recipe to satisfy your craving.
Take Your Movie Night Outside
Enjoy summertime cinematic classics under the stars this year. New York locals can take advantage of various parks that are hosting movie nights. From Brooklyn Bridge Park to Randall’s Island, guests can spread out blankets, enjoy snacks from local vendors, and bliss out while enjoying a classic flick. Or even better, host a DIY movie night for your friends and neighbors. All you need is a screen (or a big sheet) and a projector.
