8 Great End-Of-Summer Instagram Photos This Week

Well, it's over. Stuff your swimming trunks in the back of your underwear drawer and put the cover on the grill, lest winter birds nest in it. KIDDING! Just because it's Labor Day weekend by no means indicates the end of nice weather. We've got another solid few weeks left in us, at least. But this end-of-summer theme we've noticed on Instagram is pretty awesome — larger-than-life cocktails, stone fruit, tacos, burgers and dogs inspire us to keep our sandals on.

Take a peek at the dog days activities of our favorite Instagrammers, and don't forget to follow us @foodrepublic and tag us if you see or eat something awesome.

Oh yeah, and as a special bonus treat, we've got lots of action to carry you through Labor Day over on our Instagram page. Some of the Food Republic team is down in Memphis for the first Heritage Pig BBQ Competition, while Philadelphia chef/restaurateur Marc Vetri and his insanely talented team are doing another of our patented Food Republic Instagram Takevovers. Have a great 3-day weekend everyone!
