My father always enjoyed having family and friends over to his house for a traditional backyard BBQ. Over the past few years the event had literally grown to the point that several hundred people would show up for the celebration. He would plan it out for days making lists for the grocery store as well as the liquor store. Regardless of the weather, his celebration was always the last Saturday in June! Everyone who was invited knew to save that date for my dad’s bash. His most recent celebration however, was even more unique than any I had seen before. The weather was said to be hot and humid for the weekend of the event. My father had previously planned for rain at his BBQ, but had not had to do anything concerning heat and humidity. Even with this, he had a grand idea! He rented out a big tent that covered most of his backyard. He even had a dance floor stationed at one end of the big rectangular tent. However, the best aspect of his party was that my Dad had rented a large portable Air Conditioning component. He had this giant box like item sitting in one corner of the tent with an exhaust hose that ran outside. It was an incredible celebration! Everyone ate, drank, and had fun dancing that evening in almost perfect comfort! It was most obvious when you had to leave the tent for one reason or another and were instantly blasted with the humidity outside of the tent. My father’s Summertime BBQ had always been a great event but now it would be remembered forever for being the best outdoor celebration in the comfort of Air Conditioning.
