Memorial Day Weekend: A Day of Honor and Remembrance
Summer officially begins on Wednesday, June 21st this year, but the 3-day Memorial Day weekend is often embraced as the unofficial start to the summer season. During this weekend Americans usually relax with friends and family, often with a picnic or cookout before commemorating Memorial Day on Monday. To show respect and gratitude to the men and women of our armed forces who have given their lives in service to our country, many Americans attend parades and memorial services or place flags and flowers on the graves of the fallen during this weekend. While Memorial Day is a day of remembrance it is also a day we thank our current active duty and veteran military for all they have done to protect our country and our freedoms.
Buca wants to help you make this special weekend even more memorable. Bring the whole family to your local Buca after a parade or let us cater your special Memorial Day weekend event. Surprise your guests with a change from the regular summer cookout menu and offer everyone’s Italian favorites as well as cool salads, fresh seafood, lean chicken, and veggie-only dishes. We even have everyone’s beloved potluck standby on our catering menu – macaroni and cheese! Choose one of our catering packages or create your own awesome combination of Party Pans (feeds 20 adults), Half Pans (feeds 10 adults), and a variety of our other specialties. We can even supply the beverages and desserts, because what says “summer” more than a cool drink and a sweet treat? We even take care of all the extras like napkins, silverware, and plates, so your guests can dig right in without any delays!
You can even pick up Buca To-Go for smaller parties and family get-togethers. Heading to the lake, campground, or beach? Don’t stress about packing a picnic basket or remembering charcoal and lighter fluid, choose Buca instead! We make it easy to spend more time participating in your events and give you more quality time with your loved ones by taking care of all the cooking. We only need an hour notice and we can have your feast ready and waiting for you to pick it up.
Don’t stress about organizing your Memorial Day event. Buca can help you kick off the summer season in delicious style by taking care of all the details. Call us today to make your reservation or to place your catering and To-Go orders!

Celebrate “The Heart of Healthcare” During National Nurses Week Saturday, May 6th – Friday, May 12th, 2017
Nurses are integral to hospitals, clinics, and other health care organizations. They administer aid and medicines, provide quality care for sick or hurt patients, and continually consult with other healthcare providers. They also educate their patients and families, keep meticulous records, and assist doctors around the clock. This broad spectrum of responsibilities is why nurses are referred to as the heart of healthcare.
Celebrate the Nurses in Your Life
Being a nurse is one of the most demanding professions in the world. Show your nursing staff how much they mean to you and their patients with a delicious meal from Buca di Beppo.
- Catering: From a few nurses at a small doctor’s office to an entire hospital, Buca has no problem catering a full meal for your staff. We’ll work with you to coordinate a customized catered meal and then deliver your selections along with all the necessary utensils, napkins, and plates*.
- Gift Cards: Doctors’ offices and hospitals are busy! If a catered meal is just not possible or you simply wish to give your wonderful nurses a break outside of work, a gift card is an equally meaningful gesture. Buca di Beppo Gift Cards are redeemable at participating Buca di Beppo restaurants and are available in values from $10 to $500. Drop a card on their desk or send an eGift Card instantly to their inbox. With no expiration date or service fees, they’re convenient for both the giver and the recipient.
A Quick History of National Nurses Week
In 1953, Dorothy Sutherland of the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare unsuccessfully petitioned President Eisenhower in proclaiming a day in October as “Nurse Day.” After many additional proclamation attempts throughout the years, progress was finally made in 1982, when the United States Congress and the American Nurses Association (ANA) jointly designated May 6 as “National Nurses Day” and President Ronald Reagan signed a resolution that proclaimed May 6 as “National Recognition Day for Nurses”. In 1991, recognition for nurses expanded from a single day to a full week, which begins on May 6, and continues through May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Specific days of recognition have since been added by the ANA. In 1996, the ANA recognized May 6 as “National RN Recognition Day,” in 1998, the ANA designated May 8 as “National Student Nurses Day,” and since 2003, “National School Nurse Day” has been celebrated each year on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week.
Nurses work days, nights, weekends, and holidays; often spending up to 12 hours at a time on their feet! This year, during National Nurses Week, show these amazing men and women how much they are appreciated by gifting them with a catered meal or gift certificate from Buca di Beppo.
