4 of July: OMGWTFBBQ Theme Menu

Spread the love

The fourth of July. What can I say here that we don’t already know? Independence Day (colloquially the Fourth of July or July 4) is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States, on July 4, 1776. Making the 13 original American Colonies no longer under British rule. We celebrate our independence by drinking ourselves silly and firing flaming paper, explosive powders, and wood into the sky. Sounds nutty, right? This has already been a very strange time and I urge you to take a look around before setting things on fire this year. I have a theme menu here to keep you entertained instead.
