Borne out of the Civil War, Memorial Day commemorates the men and women of our armed forces who gave their lives in service to our country. On the last Monday in May, Americans participate in events in a show of respect to those who gave their lives for our freedoms. Many attend town parades, events, and memorial services and place flags or flowers on the graves of the fallen. Homes and businesses are patriotically decorated in red, white and blue. United States flags are flown at half-staff from dawn until noon and POW/MIA flags are often flown as well. Taps is played while Americans pause for the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. in a show of national unity. While this 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.
Memorial Day is also viewed as the official beginning of summer. A day to relax with friends and family, often with a picnic or cookout. Buca wants to help make your Memorial Day truly memorable. Spend more time participating in the day’s events and have more time with those you love by letting us take care of the cooking. Whether you bring the whole family to the restaurant after a parade, let us cater an event honoring veterans, or you pick up Buca to go, we can take the pressure off you for what you’ll cook while you and your guests get to enjoy delicious dishes. If your event is going to be outside, don’t think that Italian food will be “too heavy.” Although we make a mean meatball, we also offer fresh salads, light and lean seafood and chicken entrees, as well as several main and side veggie dishes. Our Party Pans feed 20 adults so gather your gang and invite the neighbors. No need to worry about all the extras like napkins, silverware, and plates. We’ve got you covered! We can even supply the beverages and desserts. Don’t stress about packing a picnic basket and remembering the lighter fluid. Choose Buca instead!
This Memorial Day weekend, spend time with friends and family and celebrate the brave men and women who have served our country in the military. Call us today for reservations or to create a customized menu for your Memorial Day event.
