Happy 4th July!

| | Comments (2)

Here's how my local pub is celebrating the 4th of July. (Apologies for the low-quality cameraphone image.)


In case you're wondering, "Fancy Dress" is Brit-speak for "costume." But aside from that one Englishism, they've got everything spot-on. Ah, how many a 4th July did I spend in my youth, dressed up as George Washington and playing "Shot The Balloon!" To this day, a good game of Hoopla brings back the scent of apple pie and cowboy cocktails.

God save the President, my friends. God save the President.

We've got a game of Shot the Balloon all set for tomorrow. Wish you could be here.

Extra points if this was outside the pub "Washington".

Should we be concerned that this will cause Erin to grow up believing Benedict Arnold was a Patriot, and demanding to play this "Tin Can Alley?"
