Softshell crabs, smoked pork, all the trimmings, and ice cold beer on the 4th at a big BBQ at a friends house. Playing golf with my mom and stepdad on Sunday, and I'll probably spend some time at the pool as well. It's going to be a great weekend.

Re: Happy 4th of July!

Having some peeps over Sunday night for fireworks on the lake, lots of food and drinks. I'm gonna try out a hurricane recipe I found online. Not the super sugary mix crap, this one is made with fresh fruit juices, light and dark rum, and a 151 floater. Giddyup.

Long weekend in a Buddhist monastery. It may not sound like fun to some of you folks but to me the peace, kind interactions, and tranquility rule.

Happy 4th everyone!

Re: Happy 4th of July!

You guys get the good fireworks down there in Virginia?
They barely let us have sparklers here in Michigan.

Re: Happy 4th of July!

Tonight we are taking the boat to a place that has some live music cold beer and a water fountain for the kids to play under. Tomorrow I'm playing golf and going to a pool party. Sunday we are taking some friends and their kids out on the boat to go fishing and some tubing. Monday our club has a cook out around the pool. Monday night we all meet down the street with our stash of fireworks and all the neighbors come out to watch. Even though they are illegal the fire department down the street will come and they will watch. I'm guessing we set off between $5,000 to $7,000 in fireworks between all the neighbors so we put on a pretty good show.

No, in VA only sparklers are legal. We have to go to SC to get the good stuff.

VA sucks when it comes to fireworks. They have a good selection up in PA though, which is where my friends go to buy theirs. And I didn't like SC's selection at all, my fam stopped at South of the Border on the way back from Parris Island a couple months ago, and their fireworks selection was pretty average. Granted it is a tourist trap and all but I thought they'd have a better selection.

Are you going out in the boat to watch the fire works?

South Of the Border sucks for just about anthing including fireworks. I get mine each year in Myrtle Beach and once I made the mistake of waiting until we got to SOTB and was pissed at their lack of quality and selection. We normally spend a couple of grand between the group of use but we walked away buying none.

I could, but I can just watch them from my deck too, so we usually do that. I'm in no condition to be boating by the time the fireworks start.

Did a hurricane test run tonight and this recipe is a winner, very close to the ones they have at the Blacksmith Shop in New Orleans, which are widely regarded as the best in town:

Ice
1.5 oz dark rum
1.5 oz light rum
1/2 oz 151 proof rum
1.5 oz fresh pineapple juice
1/2 oz fresh orange juice
1/4 oz fresh lime juice
1/4 oz grenadine
orange slice
Maraschino cherry
