Ohh Labor Day, the unofficial end to summer. So sad that it is already here, it feels like we were just celebrating Memorial Day. I do love the long holiday weekend, spending it with family, grilling out, and enjoying the sunshine all weekend long. Here are some of my all time favorite dishes to bring to barbecues, cookouts, and/or family gatherings. And, more importantly a really fun drinking game to play too.
Picnic/cookout/dish to pass ideas
I can’t wait to get cookin’ this weekend! I’ll have even more recipes to add onto this list!
And now for the important part!
Friskee/Beer Frisbee/Beerbee/Whatever name you want to give it
-A pair of poles- anything will work-from large wooden dowels, pvc pipes, but really the best things are ski poles because you can jam them into the ground and still have a nice flat place for the beer bottles to balance on top of.
-2 empty beer bottles- if they were full…it would be messy
-A frisbee…unless you want to throw something else at the poles.
-2-4 people who like to have fun
Place poles directly across from one another about 20-30 feet apart and chest height. Place the empty beer bottle (you can also use a can-especially if you’re not playing on a grassy surface-yikes!) on top of the pole.
Each player should have a drink in hand. And they should be drinking it.
The point of the game is to knock the bottle off of the opponents pole either by hitting it directly with the frisbee, hitting the pole with the frisbee, or causing your tispy opponent to knock it off themselves. The defenders job is to catch the frisbee before it hits the ground without spilling their drink.
Team members must stand behind their pole when throwing and defending. You may not guard the pole! You may not guard bottle or pole from contact with the frisbee. Each team gets one throw per turn, teammates alternate throwing and defending. You can only score when it is your teams turn to throw. If the other team does not catch the frisbee, you get the points!
Points are for the throwing team only.
Zero Points: Uncatchable Throw or Frisbee is Caught
One Point: Frisbee is dropped, the bottle remains in place.
Frisbee hits the bottle off of the pole, frisbee and bottle are both caught.
Two Points: Frisbee hits the pole, knocking the bottle off. Either frisbee or bottle are caught.
Three Points: Frisbee hits the bottle, knocking it off the pole. Bottle and Frisbee Hit the Ground.
Game is played to 21 points, you must win by 2! Losers…well you decide.
You must have a drink in your hand at all times…even if it’s just water. It’s much harder to catch the frisbee or beer bottle with one hand! Have fun, be careful, drink responsibly!
What are you eating this labor day weekend?! …what are you drinking this labor day weekend?! Hopefully I’ll be enjoying some delicious local ciders! Have a great weekend!
