Willington Lakes Phase 1 Blog, Orangeburg, SC — Throw some burgers or brats on our outdoor grilling station and enjoy a nice evening with some friends!

Because May is National Barbecue Month, what better time than now to make use of our outdoor grilling station? In this week’s Willington Lakes Phase 1 Blog, we’ll share some ways to make use of our apartment community outdoor grilling station and take advantage of the warmer weather of Orangeburg, SC for a barbecue!


Throw a party

Barbecues are a great way to spend time with friends. It gives you a good reason to Invite close friends and friends who you haven’t seen for a while to enjoy an evening of fun and food. Parties involve a lot of planning and coordination, but our amenities are more than capable of handling parties of various sizes.



The most important part of any party. Whether you’re looking to grill up some burgers and brats, or be a little more fancy by throwing on some shish kebabs, the outdoor grilling station is perfect for whatever your needs are. As a tip, if you’re throwing a barbecue, don’t take on all the responsibility by providing food for everyone. Instead, make it a potluck and spread the responsibility between you and your guests.


Be Prepared, then Clean Up

The last thing you want is to be missing something crucial after you’ve started the grill. Plan ahead by making a checklist, and make sure you’ve gathered all you need into one convenient location. It’s okay to delegate the bringing of food to other people, but it's a good idea to be the one providing the cups, utensils, and plates.


After you’ve used our amenities, be sure to be courteous to other residents and clean up after your party. Come prepared with additional trash bags and wipes and delegate tasks to your guests to lighten the workload for everyone and speed up the cleaning process.
