[Photo via The Foodista] Eat This. Labor day weekend came and went taking away our days of lounging poolside and leaving us all with great summer memories and a serious 3-day weekend hangover. If you're able to peel yourself out of bed, what better way to ease back to your normal self than with the ultimate hangover food, pizza. The Foodista created her own version of NYC's Vesta Hangover Pizza with this easy to make recipe... More»
Grill this. Long, Holiday weekends are ideal for big BBQs and even if you aren't a big meat-eater you can still look forward to grilling out. Especially with recipes such as this one for "Better Than Sex" corn. We're not quite sure how someone comes to this conclusion about an ear of corn-on-the-cob, but it's obviously worth trying it out with a name like that. More»
Drink this. Even if you've never had the pleasure of making it up to Maddie's Sail Loft in Marblehead, Mass (the Yachting Capital of America), you can still drink like the sailors do with their signature "Thunderdome" drink. While we're not quite sure how many sailors actually indulge in this fruity vodka champagne cocktail, I can tell you from experience, I've seen this concoction knock many of manly men on the floor. Because while the drink may call for equal parts of fruit juice to alcohol, the heavy handed, scruffy bartenders at the coastal institution definitely don't always stay true to form... More»
Bite this. Because a BLT is the perfect transitional food from summer to fall due to it's dual hearty and light combo. The meat of the bacon gives it substance while some good, crisp lettuce and fresh, juicy tomatoes will keep it nice and light for you. And if you're wondering while we'd provide you with something as simple as a recipe for a BLT, this isn't just any BLT - this is The Perfect BLT, according to our friend Carol Han, of StyleCaster fame.

[Photo via WeekofMenus] Every caffeine addict knows that taking your java poolside doesn't exactly working out so well. Iced coffee just melts into a watery mess and who wants to drink hot cup of anything under the glaring sun? We don't, but we think this reverse coffee drink is a suh-weet alternative for those needing their coffee fix by the pool. Milk, sugar (maybe a bit of chocolate syrup if you're feeling ballsy) over coffee ice cubes? Genius...
[Photo via Panoramio] Shelter Island's dining options are tasty, yet limited so if you're venturing to the Island and you're looking to try something besides Sunset Beach, Sweet Tomato's, or stopping by any of the many cafes located on the island, make a visit to The Dory Restaurant for their secret patio if for nothing else. Don't be fooled by its' appearance as this grub spot is more than worth the ferry ride. The food? Delicious. The view? Even better. More»

This boozy version of the tasty summer pastime is easy to make while offering up a sweet, refreshing icy cocktail to help you cool down while soaking up the sun poolside... More»
[Photo via TheKitchn] Sip this. Based on it's ingredients, the Michelada, known south of the border as the "Mexican kissing drink" might be a bit questionable. A beer cocktail with hot sauce, lime, and salt? We know, sounds scary, but don't be fooled. We found a mango version of the "beer margarita" which is sure to please while lounging poolside as long as you're willing to sip adventurously. And with no hard liquor needed for this wild concoction, you wont run the risk of passing out by the pool before your night out gets started. Ingredients and directions below... More»
