Style File: Summer BBQ
Summer is here, and it's time to kick back and enjoy a backyard BBQ. Whether you want to throw a chic backyard bash of your own or have someone else do the work for you, Seven's Belkys Nerey shows us how to marinate a swinging summer party in tonight's Style File.
WSVN -- Chicken on the grill.
Partier: "They look good, don't they?"
Music and lots of cocktails.
If you're throwing a backyard BBQ, we've got the perfect way for your guests to sit pretty.
Bubble Miami is blowing up in South Florida with their inflatable and funky furniture that you can rent for any event.
Lynn Shapiro: "When I saw their stuff, it just popped out at me. It was so adorable."
You pick the size, and color and the people at Bubble show up and blow it up for you.
For dishing out drinks, there's the Bubble bar and, for lounging, there's circular chairs and ottomans to prop up your feet or drinks.
Plus these bright-colored foam chairs that can be attached for more seating.
Jean Marc: "From one seat you can do a love seat."
It's sure to be the life of the party!
Lauren: "The furniture is awesome. It's so creative, and it's really comfortable. I love it."
Noah: "I think the furniture is really Florida. I mean it's outdoors."
But if you don't want to throw your own BBQ, you can swing by Johnny V's on South Beach for his summer Cuba Q.
Johnny Vinczencz: "A Cuban-style BBQ with fresh pig, black beans rice and sweet plantains."
Every third Thursday of the month, Johnny throws some pork on the "caja china."
Johnny: "What it does is it slowly roasts the pork inside and then, because the coals are on the top, it makes crispy skin on the outside."
Marlene Crep: "I have never had pork cooked like this. It is absolutely so tender."
While you pig out, there's music to entertain you in the courtyard.
Plus, $5 mojitos and Johnny's signature cocktail, the Caribbean Cowboy, a Thursday night treat you can't beat!
Marvina Campbell: "A Thursday wind-down, start your weekend, you know relax."
Kendra Gillespie: "We're loving it. The music is nice. The mojitos are fantastic!"
It's some of the cheapest BBQ in town. A plate is only $10.
