    Come on folks – Mardi Gras day!

  • I really enjoy how Election Day is off to a strong start.

    Thanksgiving Day! It’s my personal tradition to start the day off (that’s right–from the moment I wake up) with a coffee stout or porter. Keep a minimal buzz going the rest of the day to reduce the stress of cooking/eating, etc. Sleep it off on Black Friday. Helluva way to start the holidays!

    • And let’s not forget the most momentous event of the day, streamed into living rooms across the country every year.
      That’s right: the American Kennel Club Dog Show.

    I voted fourth of July. There are no real expectations. You are not required to make plans with “Great Aunt Beatrice” (ie extended family), the outdoors/fireworks is most always a part of the fun, fireworks (c’mon!) adult beverage(s) out of doors-during daylight hours, children are considered part of the fun (not the purpose for the gathering nor a detractor from adult interaction). I am looking forward to it already!
