All you have to do is fill a baby pool with about 10 gallons of ketchup, mix in some foam hamburgers toys and go to town. Better yet, challenge your neighbors and friends. They won’t think you’re weird or anything.

1. Remember the Fallen
While we jest about burgers, this weekend is truly about honoring the brave U.S. soldiers who died in the line of duty. We want to encourage everyone to honor these fallen soldiers by supporting today’s veterans. Consider a small donation to one of many veteran services organizations like AMVETS, Hope for the Warriors and Homes for Troops.
