This is one of those New York City weeks that gets off to a slow start and then builds up to a Friday night of frantically running around to see it all. It’s also one of those great weeks that reminds you the city is still full of people doing awesome, cheap projects with a DIY ethos.
Our 2015 Fourth of July GIF Commission recipient, artist and designer Carrie Rennolds, hails from Baltimore. She’s making a red and blue state have some sort of sexual relations. This is a lesson for us all: No matter where you live, no matter if you swing left or right (or top or bottom), if you find a hot dude at a grill-out this weekend, don’t let his politics sway you into going home alone. Just do him.

It’s time for you to leave the office and start pre-partying for the long weekend. To get you in the mood, here are GIFs of Fourth of July dogs. Their patriotism is so strong, their fur sparkles to the tune of “God Bless America.” Hopefully you’ll attend some parties with dogs invited to them. Parties are way better with dogs. You can play fetch with them. You can tell them to steal your enemy’s hot dog. Just don’t play fetch with them at a rooftop party. Never play fetch with a dog at a rooftop party.
It’s Canada Day! Much like universal healthcare, gay marriage, and CARFAC fees (national arts funding) our neighbors to the north get to celebrate everything before we do…including their national holiday. So by the time Americans are getting 4th of July drunk, Canadians will already have recovered from their Canada Day hangovers and be ready to bring their leftover bacon to your lame cookout.
