Can you believe that summer is already winding down? Although the weather is still warm right now, before you know it, we’ll be huddled up with flannel shirts, heavy jeans, and blankets while watching a local football game on a Friday night. There is good news though–there’s still plenty of time left to grill!

As a matter of fact, a number of people will even go so far as to grill in the dead of winter. To those people, we salute you. Everyone loves the flavor that only a grill can impart to whatever it is that you are cooking and we’ve even written twelve tips for propane grilling during winter in a previous blog, ensuring that even if there’s snow on the ground, you can still have a good meal on the grill!

Buy a Propane Tank and Get Started!

Here is the good news though–we still have plenty of warm weather to get the most out of grilling. After that, we’ll just throw on our jackets and enjoy the cool breeze as fall starts to roll around, but for now, you can still enjoy shorts, flip flops, and tank tops while you’re grilling out.

Speaking of which, now is a great time to swing by a Mighty Flame location and grab yourself a spare propane tank. Whether you’re planning to grill a lot after this summer or just a little bit, the last thing you’ll want to have to do is to grab a propane tank when it gets cold. Fortunately for you, Mighty Flame has a number of different locations that make it easy to buy a propane tank pretty much right around the corner! It really doesn’t get much better.

3 Ways to Send Summer Off Well

As the weather begins to get cooler and school starts up again, you might be considering having a last shindig or two to send summer off and welcome in the fall. Here are a few of our favorite ideas.

Have a Bonfire

You may not be quite ready to have a bonfire right this moment, but setting up a fire pit in your backyard and inviting a few friends over is a great way to transition out of summer and into the season that is to come. Throw a few burgers on the grill, have your friends bring drinks and dessert and you’re setting yourself up for a relaxing night spent sitting around and telling stories. Sounds like the perfect evening to us!

Cook a Romantic Meal for Two

You may also want to take advantage of the fact that it’s still summer. That means the kids can stay with their friends during a weeknight and you can enjoy a romantic dinner with your significant other. Whether you make steaks, fish, or something else, making a romantic dinner for your special someone is a great way to enjoy the last little bit of summer before the kids are at home doing school work and you’re busy raking the leaves.

Throw a Back to School Bash

Back to school season can feel like a busy time for everyone, so why not throw a big bash for your friends and family? Heck, invite the whole neighborhood! Throwing a party during back to school season is a great way to send your kids off into the next stage of their life while still enjoying the warmer weather and the lazy attitude that seems to accompany summertime. After all, weekends seem to be filled with football games, parent/teacher conferences, and musical rehearsals (which, of course, are also fun), so why not take advantage of this last little bit of summer and throw a big bash to send everyone into the next season in style?
