See The Dark Side Of The Moon With Roger Waters, Get Faded At New Math Mondays, Or Watch The Bachelorette Break Hearts At Sundown At Granada.

We’re just a day away from hot dogs and burgers, celebrating America’s birthday, and oh yes, fireworks.

On average, Americans use 285 million pounds of fireworks during Independence Day and that’s between professionals and drunk fools, so it’s safe to say we like to blow things up to celebrate.

That being said, fireworks account for 67 percent of injuries during July 4 and the month after. Probably all those leftover fireworks.

But all that is for tomorrow. Today is today. So get out there and enjoy Monday with some fun ongoing from our carefully curated list of ongoings. — Obed Manuel
