How does your Labor Day stack up against your fellow Americans?
Labor Day is all about us – the American worker. Cheers to the hard working, the overworked and the overpaid. Cheers to the entrepreneurs, CEOs and interns. This day’s for you.
How do you plan to celebrate? Here in San Diego, we have a lot of options. From the beach to a backyard barbecue, we are lucky enough to live in a city that affords us the choices that are the foundation of this great country of ours. What are you going to do with your day off? Turns out, a lot of us do the same things. How does your Labor Day stack up?
Budweiser Labor Day USA, in conjunction with Learndipity Data Insights, asked 2,000 Americans (ages 21+) about their plans for Labor Day.
What to do on Labor Day?
Turns out that firing up the grill is the most planned festivity, followed by watching a movie, enjoying quiet time, and participating in an outdoor activity. If you’re grilling, be sure to grab some festive food, ice cold beer (or a perfectly chilled – but not too cold – beer of the craft variety), and some music for a real good time.
What to grill?
Looks like the most popular of choices is a good ‘ol fashion hamburger.
But What do you want on that burger? Chances are you’ll have some cheese, lettuce, tomato and ketchup. I would bet if you’re looking at California (or San Diego stats) you’ll get even more avocado and perhaps some pickled jalapenos too…is anyone else hungry?
What to drink?
Beer, beer and more beer. Well, if you’re going to have a burger, there’s almost nothing better. The survey distinguishes between domestic and imported beers, which together make up 72% of men’s beverage choices and 52% of women’s choices.
The great news is, in San Diego, we have plenty of beers to choose from. If it’s Budweiser, who supplied the study, you have many choices. Bud, Bud Light or many of their “sister brands” owned by AB InBev such as Corona, Goose Island, Michelob, Natural Light, Rolling Rock, St. Pauli Girl or Stella Artois. There is something there for almost every palate and price range. Want to venture to newer waters? Don’t forget to try out one of the 128 breweries (as of 8.30 via Westcoaster magazine) that are based right here in San Diego.
