Summer Barbecue Party

No matter the ‘cue camp in which you reside—tomato-based Memphis sauce, vinegar-based North Carolina sauce, mustard-based South Carolina sauce, molasses ribs of Kansas City or smoked brisket of Texas—join our summer barbecue party honoring the South’s most esteemed export.   This will officially kick off our outdoor entertaining season, so stop in for a barbecue tasting tour across the country with a cold beer in hand, all to the tune of live bluegrass music. You are sure to find fresh ideas for your next gathering, whether you’ll be serving up barbecue or not!

Step inside our store to find all of your summer entertaining essentials. Shop our endless array of sauces in the Grocery Department, and of course, don’t forget the drink mixes to complement your ‘cue.

With your gourmet ingredients in-hand, make your way to the Wine and Beer Department for drink suggestions perfect for outdoor entertaining. While beer may be the first thing that comes to mind, wine and barbecue also make a happy marriage, whether you choose light reds, crisp whites or sparkling rosés.

Cool down at the Coffee and Tea Department. With summer weather in full force you’ll learn the tips and techniques to brew up the perfect pitcher of iced coffee or iced tea to survive the sweltering summer.

Our House and Home Department will showcase gadgets and grills that are best for barbecue, and to complete your summer soirees, shop outdoor entertaining essentials, from table linens, to beverage dispensers, to outdoor dishes!

Don’t forget your grab-and-go sides from our Deli Department. You’ll enjoy a wide array of classic summer sides, from salads to slaws. Want to get away from the grill? We would be happy to cater your gathering with the entrée and all the fixings.

Be sure to stop by for the announcement of our Potato Salad Contest Winner at 11 a.m. Our celebrity judges are potato salad patrons and will determine the winner based on texture, creativity, appearance, and most importantly, flavor.

So come on out and start your summer at Southern Season with our complete guide to outdoor entertaining.
