Weird and Funny Things you Need for Independence Day

Let’s face it. It’s been a tough couple of years. While we are not completely out of the woods yet, I think we can all agree that we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. The city is visibly more active as bars, restaurants, gyms, nightclubs and more begin to open at full capacity. After a long period where holiday celebrations were noticeably more subdued, if even celebrated at all, it seems like we all deserve to get out of the house to drink, dine, dance, party and enjoy our lives to the fullest. The first major Holiday since restrictions were lifted in most cities, you can feel the excitement brewing as people are getting ready to lose their inhibitions and turn things up on the Fourth of July. 

Whether you are going to a backyard BBQ, getting excited for the fireworks show, heading to Polk Street for the San Francisco Fourth of July Pub Crawl or getting ready for one of the many Independence Day Events in San Francisco, take things up a not notch with some sweet costumes or accessories this year. Check out some cool stuff you can order just in time for the weekend.

What can you say about these sweet boxer briefs? I mean, look at the location of the hot dog print. Will these be discussed for years to come at design classes all over the world? Probably.

I think you already know the answer to that.
