7 most ridonkulus Fourth of July celebrations 

1. 4th of July CelebratI'On. Start the day off in Mt. Pleasant with a patriotic parade.

2. North Charleston July 4th Festival. The party at Riverfront Park will have music from CoastRunner, The Blue Dogs, and Quiana Parler & Friends.

3. Patriots Point Independence Day Blast. You can't get any closer to the huge fireworks display off of the U.S.S. Yorktown than this. Bring earplugs.

4. Fourth of July Party on Ashley Point. California Dreaming's first annual event features all-day drink specials, barbecue, and live music late into the night.

5. An American Celebration. This afternoon-long event at Woodlands Inn closes with a concert by the Summerville Community Orchestra.

6. S.C. Aquarium Fourth of July Celebration. Even though many of the creatures in the aquarium can't technically be considered "American," you'll still get one of the best views of fireworks in the city.

7. Uncle Sam Jam. This one on the Mt. Pleasant Pier definitely has the best name of the bunch.

Summer Guide 2010

  • 7 ridonkulous fireworks

    If you haven't been a part of a bottle rocket war, you haven't lived. The smell of sulphur in the middle of the night sure as hell beats the smell of napalm in the morning. But finding a place to wage war — and enough people to participate — is damn near impossible these days. And rightfully so. Stray rockets have a way of starting unintentional fires and wayward ocular accidents. So stick to the relatively safe stuff.

    What's a Donk? Well, it's kind of like pornography: You'll know it when you see it. What? That's not good enough? You need more? OK. Look for a boat of a car — like an Oldsmobile or an Impala — painted the color of a Blow Pop and sporting rims that would fit on Godzilla's ring finger.

  • 7 most ridonkulous things to do with a watermelon

    Summer is shoving your face into a fruit the size of your head. It's a seed-spitting contest at a backyard barbecue. It's wondering if that one seed you accidentally swallowed will germinate in your stomach. It's bright green and even brighter pink. Summer is watermelon.

    For some, summer smells like cocoa butter. For others, sweat. And then there are those for whom it smells like a nasty combination of pluff mud, horse piss, rotten fish, and an Ohio pork belly sizzling in the burning sun. Pork belly? Mmm. Now we're thinking about food. Hmm. What else would we like to eat right now?
