Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I spent mine doing the BBQ, cheeseburger, chicken skewer, Corona, gin and club soda thing.  But alas, after a weekend of sun, backyard boondoggles, and homemade desserts, I find myself back at work on the 19th floor of my office building, staring outside at the near perfect summer weather, wishing for the weekend.

This week though, of all weeks, I feel especially patriotic.  Why?  Well although I’m not a regular soccer fan, never played, and don’t even know the rules, I had to get behind the men’s national team and rooted for them against Belgium! I am beyond disappointed that they lost. The city has seriously become alive with excitement, so it’s hard not to want to join in on the mid-day fun…and the mid-day gin.  Tack on the 4th of July being this weekend and I’m basically Uncle Sam.
So as I sit here on this unnecessarily freezing cold trading floor looking forward to this patriotic weekend, I will absolutely be needing this:

Price: $32.00

Slap that thing on the nearest tree in your backyard, thank God you’re an American and sip a Bud for your forefathers.  Cheers!
