It's summertime in Boston and the Wahlbergs are kicking it off with their annual family reunion. This year there is a lot to celebrate.
Donnie decides to run Wahlburgers for a day to settle an argument with his older brother Paul about who has it tougher. As Paul watches nervously from the sidelines, Donnie's loose managerial style eventually leads to an appreciation for his big brother's attention to detail. Meanwhile, Drama gets another crack at fame when Arthur, the oldest of the Wahlberg brothers, offers him a co-starring role in a new independent film.
Paul and his brother Bob decide to take their sons Ethan and Oscar on a fishing trip in attempt to start a new family tradition. What starts as a leisurely trip down memory lane is cut short when they ditch the boat for a local paint ball course and the day becomes a cutthroat contest of kids versus dads. Meanwhile, Alma finds out that her grandson Brandon is dating two girls at the same time and her decision to interfere becomes a lesson in modern day relationships.
When Mark notices that the restaurants are busier than ever, he asks his bodyguard Scott to go to Boston to look after Alma. Scott soon finds himself out of his element when Alma turns her temporary protector into her new best friend. Meanwhile, pop duo MKTO visits Wahlburgers while on a tour stop and Paul gets a chance to provide his daughter Madison with the night of her life. Johnny "Drama" dusts off some of his old music and hustles himself an opportunity to perform on stage with MKTO.
At Donnie's suggestion, Paul decides to take up woodworking as a hobby to help manage the stress of running the restaurants. Alma, who is terrified Paul is going to hurt himself, insists his older brother Arthur--a carpenter himself--try and protect Paul in the dangerous endeavor. Meanwhile, Mark decides to let Johnny "Drama" and his funk band, perform at the Boston premiere of his new movie. "Drama" gets nervous when he thinks his band may not be up to the task.
Paul must navigate a jam-packed day including a visit to an oyster farm, an interview with a reporter and a skateboarding event for his son. Right when he thinks he has things under control, Mark adds fuel to the fire by insisting he meet the mayor of Boston to discuss a new Wahlburgers location. When the visiting reporter becomes enthralled by Alma's Wahlberg childhood stories, Paul becomes terrified about just how candid this profile may become.
Donnie is homesick during the New Kids On The Block European tour, so his fiance Jenny McCarthy, invites his brother Paul to London to cheer him up. After Paul tries, and fails, to get Donnie to warm to English cuisine, he takes in a New Kids' performance before whipping up a feast for the whole band to enjoy.
The entire Wahlburg clan gears up for their favorite local holiday, Dorchester Day--an event that has become the backdrop for some of the family's most infamous pranks. While Paul insists that the family forgoes the hijinks this year, his nephew Brandon has other plans--and he has his sights set on Paul's assistant, Kari. Meanwhile, Donnie enlists Johnny "Drama" and Henry "Nacho" to paint a shed in his backyard while he's away on tour and the process becomes a joke all its own.
Mark is in Hong Kong to promote his film--and Johnny "Drama" and Henry "Nacho" are along for the ride. During their stay Mark sends "Drama" to a casting agency to audition for a local commercial. Meanwhile, "Nacho" uses his stomach of steel to sample local delicacies and scouts out a new location for a future Wahlburgers restaurant.
When Donnie asks Paul to join a fantasy football league, Paul decides to enlist the help of New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski. In return, Paul gives "Gronk" a cooking lesson to prepare for an important family meal.
The A&E® original series Wahlburgers goes behind the scenes with one of Boston's most well known families, the Wahlbergs. Brothers Mark and Donnie join brother Paul in a tasty business venture - a burger joint touting the family name.
Mark's in for a wild time when he brings his real life entourage to LA for a little bit of fun in the sun. While there, Johnny Drama gets the chance of the lifetime when Mark surprises him with an audition for his new film. Back in Boston, Paul is fending off hopeful screenwriters who bombard him with hopes of their work falling into the hands of his little brothers. While Paul always throws the scripts in a box and forgets them, he soon finds out that Alma has been secretly reading them and sharing her thoughts with her famous sons--much to their chagrin.
As Paul's birthday draws near, Donnie realizes that his brother is a workaholic. Forcing him to take a much deserved break, Donnie pulls out an old, beat up replica of Paul's favorite childhood car and takes him on a wild ride of brotherly bonding. While the boys spin doughnuts, the girls attempt to get Alma to relax and enjoy their day at the spa--complete with seaweed wraps and mud baths.
Donnie and Mark decide to play a practical joke on big brother Paul by telling him that they want to create a Wahlburgers jingle. They go even further by recruiting the help of their friends Joey MacIntyre (New Kids on the Block) and Kay Gee (Naughty By Nature). Never one to miss an opportunity, when their favorite cousin Johnny Drama hears about the possible jingle, he also wants in on the writing process. As the gag gains momentum, Paul, the control freak, is overwhelmed by the triple team. While her sons are busy playing tricks on each other, Alma, the shopaholic, is stumped as she tries to find the perfect gift for Donnie's new girlfriend, Jenny McCarthy.
Alma Wahlberg's recipes have always been the talk of her family. So, after years of requests, Alma finally attempts to gather all of her kids' favorite recipes and share them with the public. At Wahlburgers, Mark is up to his old childhood tricks when he hooks up with old buddy, Nacho Extreme. Nacho, the human compactor, will eat anything--for a price. This time around, Mark challenges Nacho to eat a very different kind of burger.
Mark solicits his cousin, Johnny Drama, and friend, Billy Leonard, to take Paul out for a weekend of physical activity when he sees that Paul is putting on a few extra pounds. Back home, Alma solicits the help of Kari and Mackenzie to help clean out her garage. In the search, they stumble across some of Mark and Donnie's most treasured (and embarrassing) childhood memorabilia.
