I can't help but want to watch the Will Smith movie, Independence Day every Fourth of July. Just say'n.
Some how I managed to miss all the fireworks this Independence Day weekend. No worries, I had a great time with my friends drinking wine, listening to music and chowing down. David, Alex and I headed out to Les Bourgeois for their BBQ, live music, wine and awesome view of the river.
There were a ton of people there, not an open table in sight. Luckily this really nice, really redneck, family gave us some room at their table.
One thing I love about Les Bourgeois is the dramatic shifts in populations there. One moment someone is in heels and a sun dress and the next it's a guy in his rugby outfit. You just never know what you're going to get. All you really do know is there will be a lot of people there enjoying a lot of wine and some of the best food Mid-Missouri has to offer. Seriously good food.
Unfortunately it started raining, and then it stopped and then it started again… Yeah, so we went back to Columbia, before the fireworks show started. I got dinner at Flat Branch and then we headed to Tropical Liqueurs.
There we met up, by accident, with some friends both old and new. I have lived in Columbia for seven years and I still seem to meet new people regularly. That's pretty awesome.
Off to the condo where we watched a horrendous "scary" movie called The Fourth Kind.
Despite the lame movie, the Third of July turned out to be one of the best Fourth of Julys I've had in a long time. Good friends can do that.
On second thought… all the more reason to be sad about so many of my friends moving away!
