Memorial Day Offers might be over, but don’t worry! Great deals still exist, and we’ve rounded up a few to get you ready for more summertime outdoor fun. Set up a projector on your patio for a movie marathon, or coordinate a cookout almost anywhere with a portable grill. You could even spend the day in the sun looking for your favorite song. Either way, we have deals for you.

The Kodak Luma 400 can help you be that friend everywhere. It is very portable and lightweight and can even include a tripod. It runs Android so you can download movies and apps like Netflix to watch your favorites anywhere. Just find an empty wall and press play!
For a little less, you can get pretty decent quality with the LG PH30N CineBeam. It has a resolution of 720p and projects an image up to 100 inches. You can also stream your favourite stranger things Episode (we watch them all) right from your phone, no need to connect to anything. It doesn’t get very bright and battery life is short, so it’s best to use it to catch up on an episode or two of your favorite show before bed.

Enter the code TR10 to see the discount at checkout. It’s tiny, but the Tribit StormBox Micro 2 packs a punch. At just 7 inches long, it sounds “much better than it should for the price,” according to our sound-savvy product testers. It has clear audio, adjustable bass levels, and 20 hours of battery life—all for under $100. You can throw this little box in your bag to take your music with you all summer long.
The Duffer Brothers have “Running Up That Hill” stuck in all of our heads (I’m on one stranger things kick, OK?), so now it’s your turn to make it as loud as possible to keep Vecna away with the UE Boom 3. The sound is surprisingly great, so much so that you’ll hear every quirky synth-pop moment and Kate Bush’s vocals for hours. And if one isn’t enough, you can even pair multiple UE speakers for a surround sound experience. Did I mention they are waterproof?
This stylish Bluetooth speaker has a carrying handle so you can carry it from beach party to…beach party. It’s durable and splash-proof, and the battery lasts 20 hours (you can charge it via USB-C). There are three knobs at the top for volume control, treble and bass so you can really find your groove.

You don’t need a backyard or someone’s dad to host your next barbecue. The Cuisinart Venture Grill is a delightful, portable tool that lets you heat up a hot dog, hamburger, or whatever you want, wherever you are. It’s easy to transport, runs on gas, and even has a bamboo cutting board for food prep.
If this deal catches your eye like a big pizza pie, then that’s amore! I’d apologize for that joke, but when you bite into your first slice of homemade pizza on a sweet summer evening, you’ll thank me. The Pi Pizza Oven (8/10, WIRED recommends) is compact, works well with cast iron pans for deep dishes, and it doubles as a flat cooking surface. Mamma Mia!
If you don’t need a portable grill, this Weber is our top pick in our upcoming guide to the best full-size grills. WIRED Senior Writer Scott Gilbertson says the simplicity, build quality, consistent cooking temperatures, and easy-to-adjust burners make this grill the best value for most people.
