In this Texas heat, why wouldn’t we want to eat poolside with our pals?
Coming in just behind Chicago, Austin was ranked No. 2 on a new list of the top 10 cities for summer barbecue and pool parties.
Evite, the online event invitation service, looked at summer barbecue and pool party invitations across 39 different metro areas in the country, spanning Memorial Day to Labor Day in 2017, according to a news release.
Austin had 36,095 invitations sent last year, which is 10,000 more than it had in 2016, according to the list.
Dallas didn’t make the list this year. The only other Texas city that made the cut was Houston, with just a little less than 29,000 invites sent.
Some other cool findings? While Fourth of July is the most popular day we gather for a summer party, according to Evite, the last three Saturdays in August are the next-most popular. This year, those dates are expected to be August 11, 18 and 25. So get your floaties ready.
