4th of July

July 4th weekend is here! Summer BBQ’s and sunny weather have us planning ahead so we can indulge in our favorite holiday meals on Independence Day. What summer eats are you craving? If you need a few ideas, here’s what we’re cookin’ for the long weekend:
Our mouth watering ribs are always slow-cooked to be fall-off-the-bone tender. Now that grilling season has really started, BBQ is always on the menu!
For those who love an American staple, this coming Monday is the perfect time to dig into the classic Stanford Burger. Smothered in perfectly melted pepper jack cheese, we can never say no to this one!
Of course, we can’t forget something cold to drink. Both of these plates pair perfectly with a frosty pint – whatever your beer of choice is, join us in raising a glass to summer!

Fourth of July Fun

Still sorting out Fourth of July plans? Well, luckily for you, the Washington, D.C. area is arguably the most patriotic place in America to celebrate Independence Day! From amazing musical performances to spectacular fireworks, there’s more than enough fun to fill the day. Here are three events that we are most looking forward to!


If you’re looking for the quintessential Fourth of July experience, be sure to check out America’s National Independence Day Parade at 11:45 a.m. on Constitution Avenue and 7th Street NW. This parade features marching bands from all over the country, patriotic floats, and military and special units. Plan to arrive early to stake out a good viewing spot, as the parade draws a large crowd!

What would the Fourth of July be without some live music? A Fourth of July tradition in the nation’s capital, the Capitol Fourth Concert features the National Symphony Orchestra and several pop artists performing patriotic music on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building.  Again, get there early because the place fills up fast! Gates for the concert open at 3 p.m.

Finally, there’s no Fourth of July without some breathtaking fireworks to conclude the day! In order to satisfy your fireworks fix, head over to the National Mall for DC’s Fireworks Spectacular on the National Mall. At dark, fireworks are launched from the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool and light up the sky over the Washington Monument. If you’re looking for a unique view of the fireworks, try a boat cruise or book a hotel with a rooftop view!

From all of us here at Copper Canyon Grill and Stanford Grill, have a fun and safe Fourth of July!
