(2) Drinking Margaritas on the 4th is un-American.
+1. Any other day, though, you should save me one.
I went with a friend to the fireworks on the 3rd (why does my city do them the night before? I really don't know.) Nearly one million people were there, so it was something of a well-behaved mob scene. We ended up walking 2.5 miles before we saw a bus that wasn't jam-packed.
I couldn't do fireworks myself because a) they're illegal in my state and I'm trying to apply to law school, dontyaknow and b) I live pretty close to downtown among a number of highrises, so that probably wouldn't end so well.
