So when the 4th is midweek obviously we don't get a three or four day weekend...therein lies the dilemma...when do you party? Is it better to start on the holiday and take a couple of days off to complete the week? What if you don't have the time off? Do you simply plan on more than one day of hangover remedies and start the before dinner cocktails early? My crowd is going to a ballgame and I suspect we'll be overconsuming along with those hotdogs and nachos at the ballpark...Bring on the antacid!! Bring on the fireworks!!
