Can it really be August? Although the summer won’t officially be over until the end of September, what many of us think of as summer is already winding down. Many—if not most—kids will back in school before the end of this month, in person!

Given all that students, parents, and teachers have been through since March 2020, we hope that 2021-2022 will be as normal of a school year as possible. Needless to say, it has been a stressful time for families trying to balance work with children’s remote education, and educators struggling to do their best in an unideal situation and “classroom” setting. We applaud them all for hanging in there!

It seems it would be a very good time indeed to celebrate the fact that we all made it through! Take a step back and enjoy the dog days of summer with family and friends. Drink some lemonade, eat some delicious food, and make a few more lazy memories before the school bell rings. Before you know it, life will be back to rolling at 100 miles per hour, and kids will be outgrowing clothes and shoes. Take this time to savor the rest of August— you’ll be glad you did.

To that end, Hickory River has the delicious food part covered, and it is definitely savory! Even if you’re planning a last-minute get together, we’ve got everything you need to make it a memorable feast. Placing an online order is about the easiest thing in the world, too! Consider our award-winning, low-and-slow, hickory-smoked ribs, brisket, and pulled pork, or any of our other mouthwatering meats and sides. Texas- style BBQ dinner and combo plates are guaranteed crowd pleasers and ideal for gatherings of any size.

Hang on, is that a barbecue stain on your t-shirt? Don’t sweat it, just throw it in the wash! School doesn’t start for another couple weeks, anyway.
