Great grilling and BBQ events happening this weekend

By Jonathan Millstein

Nothing says summertime like “Summertime” by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince, but a close second is being able to fire up your grill or smoker and cook meat. Unfortunately, in New York City there is not a lot of outside space that affords you the ability to perform this right of man. Thankfully this weekend there are numerous events happening where you will be able to kickoff summer with a healthy dose of meat sweats.

House of YES Memorial Day Pig Roast and Dance Party

The title pretty much says everything you need to know, but their tagline reinforces it, “Because nothing says America like meat in your mouth.”
