The 4th of July! Using My GoBar at a Cookout

The 4th of July! The biggest party day in the USA is just around the corner. As new Charlotteans, we want to ring in the celebration with recently made friends and community members, but living in a small apartment while we search for a house makes it difficult to invite people into our “home”. One benefit of living on the first floor, though, is that we have access to the grounds behind our apartment. Short of pulling our dining room table outside, we didn’t really have anywhere to put our stuff. After all, I don’t think it could be a real July 4th celebration without alcohol and BBQ. Alas, we found the GoBar, a high top bar that is ultra-portable and sets up in under a minute. With 3 interchangable options for the front skirt, the GoBar is “clumsy proof” even for a new mom who hasn’t had an alcoholic beverage in over a year. Continue reading

What Makes the Perfect Grill? The Napoleon Prestige 308 Grill

Living in southern California has its advantages. We can head to the beach almost all 365
days a year; we have “bad weather” days that consist of a little bit of rain and possibly winds; mosquitoes, those nasty little flies that bite and constantly buzz around lurking and waiting for their moment of attack, are a thing of the past; and every evening can be an “outdoor” event, which makes grilling, or barbecuing as eastern Canadians more often refer to it as, a necessity.

Grilling has always appeared to me as a manly activity and I never put much thought into cooking on the grill. Darren would happily attend to the grill regularly while we were living in New Brunswick and it never crossed my mind to participate, other than passing him the huge barbecue utensils and eating the food that he prepared. Then, one evening a few months ago, we stayed at a resort in Laguna Beach and they had a grill on the patio. As a new experience for my husband and I, I suggested that we grill together. I’m not sure what possessed me to mess with the perfect situation where he would do any grilling and I would hang out in the house waiting for my dinner, but the process of it all, that seemed to excite most men, intrigued me. The Napoleon Prestige P308RB Grill offered a cooking experience as gratifying as the wonderful meal we created, and that was it; I had to own my own Napoleon Grill! Continue reading
