A Memorial for Memorial Day Weekend

With Memorial Day Weekend upon us, it is only fitting that the 9/11 Memorial enter the discussion. Since its construction, the Memorial has been relatively under wraps behind a barricade of walls. This weekend, however, the Memorial is now open for the public to peruse sans walls and without ticket-free. The adjoining (recently controversial) 9/11 Museum, which reaches a depth of about 5 acres under the monument, has also launched into full action.

But Why are the Limes Gone?

Your margaritas—whether being made at home or served at your favorite taqueria—might be affected by the recent lime shortage. That’s right. A gang in Mexico has been hijacking lime trucks, forcing farmers to pay ransom—and those prices are being passed along to us. Additionally, due to the drought in Mexico, the number of limes available is depleting. Even though the Mexican government has been fighting back, the lime shortage (and price increases) continue. Luckily, The New York Post has us covered with a recent article about lime-less cocktail recipes.

Memorial Day weekend is upon us…finally! What better way to celebrate all things summer than with the ultimate BBQ? Here are a few tips for making this classic get-together one for the books.
 
1. Tired of the red and white picnic motif? Add a theme. Old Hollywood? Indonesian Getaway? Game of Thrones? Make it fun!
 
2. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Let yourself enjoy the party too, by enlisting guests bring food, drinks and of course, ice!
 
3. As compelling as your friends may be, sitting around could get boring. Bring back timeless games like horseshoe and badminton or set up a karaoke machine filled with summer classics. (And don’t forget to Insta-video.)
