When growing up, DH thought the fireworks and parades were all about his birthday too!

Actually, he still does think that...

Not sure of the details at present, however it will include seasoned white oak and hickory for sure.

not a clue, my daughter's bday is the eighth and mine the twelfth, so we usually kinda just lump the whole business altogether. probably at my son's. he is the one with the pool.

We're going on vacation to Michigan around the first, so will probably be at my in-laws' for the holiday. They'll probably have the usual burgers, dogs, ribs, fries, potato salad, green salad, grilled corn, etc. Good stuff

it depends on when they shut down the streets, but i'm hoping to gather friends and family and head to my building on the west side in the city, just a few hundred feet from the barges on the hudson that will be shooting off nyc's fireworks. lol, if the right security guards are on duty, we can head to the roof to watch the fireworks, and maybe even fire up a small grill for burgers and dogs.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Sounds wonderful, especially with an array of A to Z baked goods to accompany the sounds of live music ? !

Have a lovely Sunday,
Ciao, Margi.

Local Blues artists...I'm hoping Shrek can get an invite to play. Here's the notice for the Bernice's Bakery: Bernice's Bakery

And you can find all their goodies listed and described on the site as well.

I kept trying to multi quote, Vit, but it wasn't working. This will be our first visit, just found out about it the other day.

Pool party and potluck at a friends house. I have a six pound pork shoulder and a fresh jug of Pepper Tree Plantation bbq sauce, so I'm making pulled pork for sandwiches, and creamy cole slaw, home made dressing with caraway seed. I don't intend to spend much time in the kitchen.

Our little town has a huge Independence Day celebration. There will be a parade , a street fair with lots of vendors, pony rides, etc. A car show and the biggest fireworks show in the area.
DH and I will help out at the car show (our car will be entered)

We will entertain 20 or so guests for dinner and fireworks viewing. We will be serving Smoky boneless country style BBQ ribs, the oft requested from scratch baked beans, old fashioned (mustard and egg) potato salad, coleslaw and garlic stuffed artisan bread. Iced tea, lemonade, homemade beer and wine. Either strawberry shortcake or the yummy looking "Glorious Red White and Blue Cake"from Epicurious.

If you don't like the food, have more wine!
