While we agree that the best place to spend on the 4th is outside, preferably near a body of water, preferably with a picnic table full of watermelon and some kind of meat, and preferably with some side-of-the-road-bought fireworks, we also realize this isn't always reality. Weather's a big factor here: Sometimes it rains. Sometimes it doesn't. For weeks. And weeks. And with more than 160 Texas counties canceling fireworks displays, what the hell else is there to do?
