It is officially summertime at LuLu’s! Even though we serve up the fun, food, and music all year long, summer really is the craziest fun time of all. My three restaurants are in full swing in Gulf Shores, Destin, and North Myrtle Beach and we are looking forward to the greatest season ever!

While you’re here, poke around my new website. It’s so fun to update pictures and stories and to scroll through the blog archives. I’ll definitely be resurrecting some of the fun summer recipes from years past.

Now, more than ever, it really is a season to celebrate sunshine and family time. We can’t wait to see you and serve you this summer!

Love, LuLu
