Labor Day Food & Drink, Twitter Style

Labor Day is Monday, and on that day many will be getting together to enjoy food, drink and the waning days of summer.

A celebration of the America worker, Labor Day was first celebrated in 1882 in New York City. By 1885, municipal ordinances were passed declaring the day an official celebration. By 1887, Oregon had become the first state to pass legislation declaring Labor Day a holiday.

In 1894, the U.S. Congress made it official.

Like most national holidays in America, the driving force behind the celebration is food. Though I consider grilling a year-round activity, some consider Labor Day as the point of food transition - a grand goodbye to the summer grilling days (if largely ceremonial). If you enjoyed our Memorial Day food and drink Twitter guide, consider this part two - more Twitter accounts to follow for recipes and tips for Labor Day and beyond -
