So what's everyone doing for July 4th?

Some of the guys and I are hitting Ocean City for the long weekend! Hopefully the weather holds up. Beach, golf, bbq, beers and maybe some off roading in Assateague Island!

Ah that's right! In Pasadena! That is a nice town. I used to go to LA a lot for 3 years and had a place in downtown for a year. I remember one year I was there for July 4th weekend. We had gone to Newport Beach for a couple of days and came back on the 4th. Downtown LA was DEAD. But from the apartment, you could see fireworks from Dodgers Stadium.

There are some great places for dinner out in Pasadena, most of them on Colorado Blvd:

Mi Piace (Great Italian food)
Clearwater Seafood (very good seafood)

2 great steakhouses in downtown LA:
L.A. Prime in the Westin Bonaventure (you can see this hotel in the "Star" video from BMW)-blows away Morton's and Ruth's Chris
The Boxcar-excellent steak.
Avoid Nick and Stef's-it stinks (they expanded out to DC a year or two ago)

I am jealous! I am trying to see if I can fly out there on business to visit one of our subsidiaries in Pasadena.

I was thinking of heading out to Western Maryland for Saturday and Sunday... a little watersports maybe.

I hear it's real pretty out there, like at Bear Creek.

Ahhhhhhh...just imagine...the peace and quiet of the wilderness...

...then rev the hell out of your motor, burn rubber and crank up the subwoofers!!!!!

I'm probably going to catch a ride down with Pete on Friday night and ride back with my sister on Monday (morning :sad: ).

Anyone else going to be at the beach? I remember Gary with the CSL-looking E46M3 (LandShark on bf.c) mentioned he is going to be there.

I'm guessing somewhat late. It really depends on Pete since he's driving.

True. Give this man a blowtorch and welder and he's all good.

Normally I take the day before and the day after off but I'm trying to save some vacation days. I can't remember the last time I drove on a holiday weekend. This is going to be a rough trip. :cry:

Going to a bbq in Frederick on Sunday (and I guess there is some big shindig with music, food, etc. in downtown Frederick). Working on Monday :cry:

I'm heading down to the beach on Friday after work, with Eric. I'm unfortunately leaving on Sunday because I want to be rested for my trip to Ct on Tuesday.

The bright side of leaving early is I don't have to deal with the return traffic.

I'll be sitting in traffic in my sister's car. I'm going to be stuck listening to her music (N'Sync). :cry:

I thought it was odd you didn't have the day off (you get the same holiday's as me).

I'd much rather be working on someone's car than listening to my sister's music (I hope her A/C is working).

Do you find you have to fight with her to get your Backstreet Boys CD in there?

That's hers... and yes, I'm sure I'm going to get to listen to plenty of that too. :cry:
