5 Tips for Fun Festivities



Make your next barbecue, tailgate, school sporting or outdoor event easier with these great tips.

Pack properly: Pre-chill beverages, then add cans and bottles to the cooler bottoms and cover them completely with ice. Place food containers on top of the ice layer; top off with ice so no warm air can enter. For hot drinks, pack separately in an airtight insulated thermos.

Goodies in, garbage out: Bring your clean cookware and dishes in a plastic tub. When you're ready to go home, line the tub with a garbage bag and put all the dirty dishes inside.

Breakfasts of champions: For early morning events, serve a breakfast that doesn't require dishes; pancake-wrapped eggs and bacon or breakfast burritos are perfect.

Everyone knows it's windy: Minimize too-fast charcoal burning by pointing the underside grill vents away from the wind. Gas grill? Point perpendicular to wind direction.

Goofy goodies: Bring a basket filled with party favors for friends and children: temporary tattoos, beaded necklaces, bracelets and bandanas to match the theme of the party.

"I wanted to personally take a few minutes to thank you for everything. Thir process has been a long and stressful one, but I SO appreciate your time and patience with both of us. I learned a lot from you and will keep your number because I found you to be precise, honest, and fair. Your closing estimate numbers were on the money (no pun intended!) and the final mortgage payment was right on as well. We even got credited $100 at closing! What a great experience with you and thank you! I will recommend your services, PERIOD!"
