Fourth of July is pretty much a bourbon holiday, right? Sip on this delicious Manhattan this weekend and be a good American.
Happy Independence Day, Columbus! Hope y’all already have plans for an action-packed weekend. If ya don’t, let this little guide to this three-day break be your, uh, guide. As always, here are my top picks for what I’d do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.
My favorite Fourth of July tradition. This is a madness I’m all too eager to experience.
It’s a tough call Saturday between this and the Mr. Fahrenheit & the Loverboys fest at 400 West Rich (and, like, a dozen other music options Saturday; for instance: Blueprint and Bret Michaels! Thankfully not together, though that might be its own kind of awesome). I’m giving the slight nod here to 4th and 4th because 1.) Seventh Son beer, and 2.) Dan Boeckner (of Wolf Parade, Divine Fits, Operators, general badassery).
The place looks amazing, and that bourbon list, oh my. My biggest pleasant surprise, however, are the range of meatless options that actually sound creative and enticing. Oliver’s is going to be dangerous on my wallet and liver.
