Imagine an afternoon of fun with your friends and family. The kids are playing at the pool and splash pad, all your loved ones are together and you can smell the hamburgers on the grill. This could be your next Saturday shindig at Aliento, with our resort-style amenity center, The Terrace. Invite your friends and family to join you for a barbecue at The Terrace and take advantage of all the amenities it has to offer.
A day at The Terrace is like being on vacation – without the hassle of traveling. You and your friends can lounge in the cabanas and watch the kids play at the splash pad. Have a bocce tournament and then a grill-off to see who in the family makes the best ribs. Everyone can take a dip in the pool, then sit back with drinks and relax under the palm trees until dusk, when it’s time to roast s’mores. You can also reserve the clubhouse for a cocktail party with your friends. All without ever leaving your community.
When you have a barbecue at The Terrace, you have more than just a grill – you have access to an outdoor kitchen, entertaining spaces, two pools, an indoor kitchen, a multi-purpose room, fire pits, a turf area for running and playing, and more.
Bring your utensils with you, and get grillin’. The essential tools for a barbecue include a grill brush, meat thermometer, basting brush, and a stainless-steel utensil set with long-handled tongs, a spatula and meat fork. (The apron and chef’s hat are optional!)
But the food is the real star of any barbecue, whether you grill steak and chicken or veggie burgers and corn. Confirm how many people are coming and prepare enough food for everyone. Try to make things that don’t need to be refrigerated and are easy to eat poolside, such as sliced watermelon and caprese salad kabobs. But if you don’t want to make the full spread, you can have each of your guests bring a dish for a potluck barbecue. Don’t forget the ice and drinks! There’s nothing like a cold beverage on a warm day to keep you cool.
You and your guests can enjoy your barbecue picnic-style on the large lawn, or use the outdoor dining area. And after lunch, you may need some activities for the kids. There’s a children’s pool and splash pad at The Terrace, plus a bocce court. But you can also bring frisbees, bubbles and other easy games for them to play.
Host a barbecue or party at The Terrace and enjoy Aliento’s amazing amenities – indoors and out.
