When I was a kid, I couldn't wait until my friends and I were old enough to host our own Fourth of July BBQ where, away from prying, parental eyes, we could drink alcohol and eat chips all day and into the fireworks lit night.
Although I've been able to get my hands on booze (legally or otherwise) for the past six years now, grilles are harder to come by. Thus, today is the first time my childhood daydream will be realized. And while no one who I then imagined would be in attendance also lives in LA, another friendly fixture of that time period, aunt Zelda on "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch," will.
OBAMA, I love this town! And country.
