[Updated 7/2/2012 6pm] Assuming the entire government will be shut down due to a massive, DC-wide hangover on July 5, you should go ahead stash one of these in your desk now, then try to hit as many of these wild July 4 parties and events as you can.

Whether you pick the party at Kastles stadium, reserve a table on the W Hotel's roof, or get a ticket for the Boomerang Boat, you MUST grab a view of the National Fireworks show!
