What's everybody got going for the weekend/4th?

Probably take it pretty light this weekend. Maybe hit up a bar on Sat night, since most my friends have Sunday off. Gotta work on the 4th, but we close early. Then it's lotsa drinking and fireworks that night!

*edit* And by Weeken, I of course mean, Weekend...

Yeah, and on a side note, whatever everybody has planned, make sure and stay safe!

That means driving safe (or not at all, if you're drinking), and being safe with fireworks (a tenuous thing as it is, ESPECIALLY if you're drinking!).

My dad's birthday is actually July 4th, but he's having a huge party on the 2nd, so I'll be there all day. Otherwise I think I'm working. laugh.gif

Saturday: Going to San Antonio and drinking a lot.

Sunday: Driving back. Hockey game at night.

Monday. Sitting by the pool, drinking a lot, and we might go to the fireworks. Although I think we can see them from the apartment.

I have to work 3pm-11pm from tomorrow through Monday, so there won't be much in the way of fireworks for me. We might work out some sort of a hot dog and hamburger BBQ at work Monday night. Depending on how much time I spend in the tower cab Monday night, I might be able to see some fireworks in the vicinity of the airport.

I have a bunch of friends and family coming over to my place for a bbq and pool party on Saturday (having almost 3 acres and a pool has made my place the summer gathering place for my friends and family)...We'll likely have a bonfire once it starts getting dark, but a group might walk into town (algonac) to see the fireworks...

Oh man I cannot wait for the 4th.

I'm leaving on vacation tomorrow afternoon to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach in Alabama for four days of golf and beach time, then it's off to Destin at the Sandestin Hilton for a part vaction/work attending a convention within an industry we do plenty of work for across the state of LA.

It'll be interesting to see how bad the damages are around the area from all the storms last summer with all the condos and golf courses I'll be going to, and to see if there will be a good bit of people in the Gulf waters with the recent shark attacks.

It's gonna be an ass-kicking time for me this weekend and next week.

I'm going to my friend's cottage up in Muskoka that backs on to a lake. Hopefully I'll get some water-skiing and tubing in. smile.gif

Working on the 4th from 6-2pm and then after that, I'm off to my uncle's house for a cook-out and some swimming on the lake.

BBQs, BBQs and more BBQs. Seems to be the thing for this weekend, and I seem to be very popular for some reason. I have three to go to.
I'd like to get in some pool time this weekend. Hey, I know - party at Vladinator's house! We'll do some yardwork. laugh.gif
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I'm so there.

I would need a little more time to prep for something such as that, but I'd be game for it....my pool has hardly been used, my daughter thinks that forcing her to clean it prior to use is unfair, so she hasn't been in it since we moved there...I use it almost every night though... beerchug.gif

A pool party sounds fun!

We're gonna make some small changes to our plans this weekend. My friend from San Antonio is coming up for the weekend, so the thought of "taking it easy" pretty much just went out the window!

Someone better get the Saucin' thread up tomorrow! I'm sure we'll need it! drunk.gif

Erm.. okay, change of plans.

So first there was a girl killed by a shark last week. And then there was another attack. And then this guy caught a huge one off the pier. And then my boyfriend caught a few smaller ones. And then just today there was yet another shark attack in this very county.

Screw dat.

I didn't mean to really volunteer your home. But I guess I did throw in the offer to do yardwork. biggrin.gif

Maybe an LGW get-together when there's a CBA signed might not be a bad idea. Celebrate the new season and all at a central location. Hmmmmmmm.......

4th of July has kicked ass! Chillin in Destin right now before bedtime, the Sandestin Hilton here is absolutely amazing, it literally has anything and everything for everybody.

Every year my dad's side of the family has a 4th of July get-together and all the dads/uncles and some of the younger gents (myself included) play golf most the trip in a tournament, and I won this year for the first time! I haven't won much in life so I was pretty stoked about winning it.
