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

And just like that … Summer has come to an end. We all know the big (not so ) secret is that it stays warm and sunny here for a few more months. And sometimes even longer. I’m definitely a Summertime gal, but a change in season and the nature all around us is a refreshing reset. 

It’s a fun time to experiment with Fall and Winter flavors too. Be on the lookout for seasonal recipes on the blog. 

Come see us in Gulf Shores, Destin, and North Myrtle – we are rocking and rolling into Fall and we’d love to serve you!
