Backyard Grill in Makati spreads holiday cheers this weekend


This Saturday, Backyard Grill at the Park by Hinge Inquirer Publications’ Southern Living and Inquirer RED returns to Makati. This time, Backyard Grill at Park is bigger than ever, with 9 participating food partners. Held at Urdaneta Park in Urdaneta Village, Makati on December 13, this cookout for a cause encourages families and friends to come together for a fun meal before the holiday season ends. With 30 percent of the day’s profits heading directly to charity, it’s a holiday experience with a giving spirit.

Like the previous ones held in Dasmariñas Village and Ayala Alabang Village, the kids and the kids at heart will get to enjoy activity sheets and DIY pinwheel kits, as well as learn ukulele courtesy of Ukulele Philippines. Sing your hearts out as Reese and Vica and Carlo Lava serenade everyone throughout the night.

The last grilling of the year will have more concessionaires from all over the metro this time. But as always, the restaurants all have chosen charities to give back to. Satiate your sandwich cravings with Bun Appetit’s seafood buns and Pepi Cubano’s Cuban sandwiches, with sales benefitting FutKal and Ang Bandang Pinoy Co-op, respectively. Representing Kapitolyo will be Gostoso Piri Piri with its Portuguese barbecue and piri piri chicken, all for the Holy Family Church of Kapitolyo Pasig’s Social Service Ministry, as well as Locavore with its modern Filipino dishes for Samaritan’s Place.

The south’s Butamaru will serve its much talked-about ramen in support of World Vision, while Holy Carabao Holistic Farms will setup an organic juice and coffee bar for the Freunde Curative Education Initiative for the children and victims of Typhoon Yolanda in Tacloban. End the picnic with some Kalookies cookies, Bucky’s not-brownies, and Carmen’s Best Ice Cream, for the benefit of their charities Laura Vicuna Foundation, White Cross Orphanage, and Museo Pambata Foundation, Inc.
