I don’t know about you, but I like to spend the Independence Day just kicking back, relaxing, drinking some cold beers. You know, just being Independent.
So I like that Highball & Harvest at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes is offering to do the barbecue this year. And provide the cold beer, too!
I’ve experienced barbecue from these folks, so I can tell you they know what they’re doing around a smoker. They’ll be offering slow-smoked brisket, Carolina style ribs, salt-crusted red snapper and a buffet dedicated to bacon. There will be live music, games and, of course, fireworks.
Here’s what’s included: Enjoy two complimentary drink tickets for Florida Craft Beers, cask wines & hand crafted cocktails with live music, games and spectacular fireworks display at 9pm.
- Indoor and outdoor seating
- Live DJ entertainment
- Cupcake decorating station
- Popcorn station with various toppings
- Bottled Beer Station
- Watermelon Eating Competition
- Games with the DJ for kids (tug or war, three legged race, etc.)
- Corn Hole, Life Size Jenga and Connect Four
- Cotton Candy Station
- Ritz Kids Activities
- Bounce House
- Prizes throughout the day for the kids and adults
It all happens on Independence Day, which this year falls on July 4, from 6 to 9 p.m. Cost is $69 plus tax and tip; $30 for kids 12 and under. Cash bar available for additional drinks. You’re going to need reservations for this one, so call 407-393-4648, or you can click this link for more details
