4th of July Weekend Plans

I donít have any myself, working this weekend, but will at least do fireworks with my daughter.

Re: 4th of July Weekend Plans

I’m going to spend the long weekend ignoring massive groups of marginalized people.

Re: 4th of July Weekend Plans

I think my parents are having my grandparents over for supper. Other than that probably will just hang out on the 4th itself, take my dog out a couple times and watch movies or whatever. Itís generally not a holiday I celebrate hugely. Nice thing for me is that the 4th is on Wednesday which leads into my regular days off of Thursday through Saturday.

The middle-of-the week holiday doesnít always work. I generally take monday/tuesday off, so I hope to enjoy a 3 day Ďweekendí though I know all the normies would have to burn vacation days.

I expect no less from you! Glad to see you took some time off from being with your family for a little more thread-crapping, though.

Spending Friday out with friends. Might get to a casino sometime on Wednesday. Otherwise nothing too exciting. Not a big fan of big holiday events (fireworks, parades, etc).

Re: 4th of July Weekend Plans

I'm on my annual family camping trip (extended family goes and gets several campsites). I can post because I opted out of tent camping and rented a cute little cabin on the river (a bed, a bathroom of my own with a shower, wifi--woo hoo). Have to work Monday and Tuesday, so not much of a long weekend. Will likely bbq with my parents on the 4th.

Re: 4th of July Weekend Plans

Having some friends over and smoking a pork butt tomorrow for Canada Day (yes, in 'murrica).
July 4th, I'm taking my wife and kid to a movie at the new Drafthouse. Should be fun.

I wanted to buy one of these for Wednesday, but my wife ain't having it. Buzzkill.

There is no 4th of July Weekend when it falls on a Wednesday.

Re: 4th of July Weekend Plans

Got a divorce not too long ago and finally closing on the sale of our house Monday. Taking my son to my sister's to visit her family in North Carolina and to a BBQ on Tuesday. Hiking the mountains on Weds. Taking the boy to see the Imagine Dragons concert in Raleigh on Thursday. Then meeting up with them again at some roller coaster park on Friday and then back home on Saturday. Whew!

Busiest 4th I have ever had planned. Usually I don't do shit but watch movies.

Not only that, but which weekend are we talking? Before, or after?

Re: 4th of July Weekend Plans

It occurs to me this one snuck up real quick. Over the last few days I've been looking askance at fireworks stands and wondering why they were setting up so early!

Escaping the expected 105 degree temperatures by camping out in the open on the coast, where it will only reach a mere 90 degrees! Fuck that heat.
