The 5 Worst Places to Have a Picnic

There are lots of awesome places to have a picnic. Yet there are a few venues the sane among us might do well to avoid…

        -The faint green glow from the uranium creates a romantic ambiance

        -Mosquitos and other small bugs will be vaporized when they come close to you

Top 5 Summer Sandwiches

According to popular legend, the 4th Earl of Sandwich (left) was the eponymous inventor of the modern favorite. It has been said that Sandwich was a compulsive gambler who required easy-to-eat victuals during long stretches at the card table.

Either way, the sandwich has earned a permanent spot in the modern culinary repertoire. Here are our favorite summer sandwiches:

Bites & Beverages: Best Brews with Burgers

This is the first-ever installment of Dishin’ It Out’s “Bites & Beverages” feature. Every few weeks, we’ll take a look at the best things to drink with the best things to eat. Today, we’re paying homage to that bastion of between-bun goodness–the burger.

Going with the classic cheddar cheeseburger? Maybe a slice of tomato and some crisp lettuce for extra crunch? Accompany it with an amber or brown ale. They’re drinkable, all-purpose beers with a delicate balance of sweet maltiness and bitter hoppiness. And if you’re more into hopps than I am, an IPA would also pair nicely.

Top 5 Grilled Foods

The summer season is upon us. What better way to celebrate than by consuming some of the signature delicacies of summer? And what better way to prepare them than by grilling? While there are plenty of things that you can throw on a grill, we at EatStreet have decided to narrow down the list to a Top 5 collection of the very best grilled foods.

#5: Shish Kabobs. These provide you with the most options when grilling. You can either prepare them ahead of time, or each person can make their own using any combination of beef, pork, chicken, shrimp, veggies, fruit, and potatoes.  The possibilities are endless!

#4: Hot Dogs & Brats. What better food to cook on your grill than the staple of baseball games?  Not only are they decently priced, but they’re also easy to cook in large batches, allowing you to please a hungry crowd.  My personal favorite is a venison brat.
