(June 30, 2017) This is the best week ever because of my favorite holiday, the Fourth of July!

Every year I want two things: one, a hot dog off a grill (because it tastes better) and two, a cute guy to watch the fireworks with (never happens).

There is nothing cuter than an Independence Day date; especially if it’s an all day/night affair. The beach all day with drinks, a cookout, playing with sparklers while trying to make a heart shape as good as an Instagram photo and watching the fireworks with fireflies flickering about. Sounds perfect, right?

Several bars and restaurants listed below have great live entertainment that kicks off Friday and continues through the week. There are also fun Fourth of July events happening all over town.
