We are excited to take some time off and head out to the beach or a nearby barbeque and celebrate the Fourth of July! Before we head out let’s take a minute to look back and what happened this past week.

  • As we get ready to start our Independence Day celebrations, we can’t help thinking we’re glad we aren’t part of the UK. In case you live under a rock, the UK recently decided to leave the European Union and as John Oliver explained, #Brexit might not have been the wisest choice. Don’t worry UK, we will be sure to have a drink for you this weekend.
  • What does the Fourth of July and a movie theatre in Concord have in common? Well, they both have to deal with hot dogs. Concord theatre accidentally showed a trailer for Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party – a rated R film - to an audience watching Finding Dory. Watch the trailer and learn why some parents were not too happy with their children expanding their vocabulary.
  • Speaking of hot dogs – this year Nathan’s is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and hosting their Hot Dog Eating Contest. I mean what is more American than shoving as much food in your face AND winning a prize? Adweek looks at how Nathan’s has leveraged the holiday to build its brand and just last year the contest was mentioned 9,660 times on Twitter in one day. Maybe this year we will see someone eat more than 70 hot dogs in 10 minutes.
  • We are always hustling away in the office but it is time to celebrate a BIG birthday. Yes – America we are looking at you as we take off the Fourth for some much needed R n’ R. Check out Buzzfeed’s article to celebrate the holiday in style and be the coolest person at the party.

Happy Fourth of July to everyone! See ya next week!
