Hello there, Capitol Hill! Hope you’re having a wonderful 237th birthday celebration so far. If you’re getting a little antsy in between parades and fireworks and BBQs, here are a few of our past posts on this, the most American of holidays, for your reading pleasure:
Jon’s breakdown of activities from last year still has tons of relevant information, including the fact that Results is open!
I really love the crazy Lincoln Park fireworks display, and apparently a lot of other people do, too. Last year, it was shut down early: if you’re reading this, MPD, you should know there are NO FIREWORKS at Lincoln Park. Go somewhere else, please.
Nichole gave fair warning to illegal fireworks displays.
And Kyra, bless her heart, hates the stuff: she really, really hates fireworks and she is not alone (even this fireworks lover totally sees her point). The post has 44 comments-– want to stoke this fire some more? Yeah, I thought so.
Finally, if you’re a business that’s open today, give us a holler and we’ll update the post.
Be safe out there and enjoy the celebration! Also, make sure you help Neil Diamond sing “Sweet Caroline” tonight because #OMGNEILDIAMOND, amirite?
