Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial kickoff of the summer season, observed the last Monday of each May, followed by July 4th and Labor Day. Growing up in the NYC “Tri-state” area, radio stations would blare their countdowns, swimming lakes and pools would open this weekend, the smell of sausages grilling heavy in the air.
