Although I’ve been known to say that winter is my favorite season, there’s just something that’s inexplicably special about summer. Maybe it’s leaving work and still being able to bask in the sun and warm breeze. It could be the months of casual Fridays at the office. The emergence of rooftop shindigs around the city is quite possibly another reason. Traipsing around in cute dresses, chic sandals and oversized shades is definitely a highlight of summer. These are all perks of summertime, but the best part of summer is doing something you’ve been doing all year long–hanging out with friends.
Some weekends, I take what I like to call “borough tours.” It’s when I visit and spend time with friends in different parts of NYC. My logic is: I’m already outside, so why not just grace my friends with my presence. Last weekend’s theme was Adventures in Brooklyn. I had brunch and dinner plans there and some time to kill in between. Naturally, I made a stop at my friend’s loft during the schedule gap. Never to be one showing up empty handed, I came bearing gifts (read: food and beer). I knew I had the right spread because at the checkout line, the woman behind me said, “Look at all those goodies! All you need to add is a Bud Light!” (I kid you not.)
We chilled outside with our engraved bottles of Bud Light Lime® and noshed on a smorgasbord of snacks, including: quinoa chips, salsa, spinach dip and chicken teriyaki skewers. I even brought dessert–a great strawberry rhubarb pie.
When the sun started to set, it was time for me to bid adieu and make the next stop on my Adventures in Brooklyn tour.
I received a text the next day, thanking me for all the snacks and a promise to buy me a round of Bud Light Lime® on the next outing.
Bud Light Lime® is the perfect beer for summertime refreshment – and it now comes in a cool and unique new bottle.
