Independence Day is actually a very uni-related holiday, since it probably wouldn’t have been possible without the Brits’ red coats. If you see any Limeys today, remember to give them plenty of shit about that.
Me, I’ll be serving up brats, soft-shell crab, smoked chicken, and sour cherry crisp at Uni Watch Gardens (i.e., my back yard) and grumbling about the Mets not playing until 8 p.m. I don’t think we’ll have any Brits on hand, although my Canadian friend Andrea, oddly enough, has promised to bring one of those stars and stripes-patterned cakes. Full report to follow.
