4th of July in the City!

On July 4th, 1776 our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence, declaring the United States independence from the rule of the British Empire. Had we lost the American Revolutionary War, historical icons like Ben Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and John Hancock would have been hung as traitors. So how best do we celebrate their bravery, sacrifice and triumph? By spending the day boozing and barbecuing! Now in NYC since we don't have access to a pool, beach, or even BBQ for that matter, we celebrated at the Boat Basin on the Upper West Side. It's a outside bar/restaurant overlooking the Hudson that's tucked away underneath a roundabout on the Westside Highway. Although it was 92 degrees and sweltering in the city, the frozen Miami Vice drinks certainly cooled us down!
