Playlist of the week: Social summer cookout

Although the Fourth of July has passed, cookouts remain the best way to spend time with friends and family during the summer. Something about firing up the grill and gathering around a table outside to eat hotdogs and hamburgers is the perfect picture of summer. 

Even during a pandemic, it’s easy to plan a physically distanced outdoor meal with others — just space seats 6 feet apart. There’s no better way to bond with loved ones than enjoying good food and conversation, and this playlist of sing-alongs will keep the party going late into the night.
