Enjoying This One Is a No-Brainer

This one is an easy one to celebrate. Step away from your computer, grab some grub, and head into the sunny outdoors, because today is National Eat Outside Day — a holiday we're pretty sure everyone can take part in.

This holiday couldn't come at better time because today looks to be gorgeous, as does the rest of the Labor Day weekend. With the temperatures being warm but not unreasonably so, this weekend is perfect for busting out the grill and cooking up a Labor Day feast. Epicurious has a nice assortment of recipes for the cooking-minded.

National Eat Outside Day is for everyone though, so if you don't want to be in the kitchen/at the grill, you can still participate. Check out Time Out Chicago's alfresco dining guide from earlier in the summer. We'll see you out there.
