I found this event in my inbox today, and it sounds pretty fun. Have a feeling it's not at all Mr. AT's speed, but I wanted to pass it along for those of you who are more motivated than us for the 4th! Hmm...now that's got me wondering if I can convince my fam to cookout. I get burgers, nearby fireworks and $0 out of pocket. Not a bad deal!
