It's Independence Day weekend, so let's put away the laptops, log off of the computer, hide your dirty laundry away for the weekend, accept that the dishes in the sink might sit there an extra day or two and just kick back and chill. For three days, can we do nothing but enjoy our family and friends, travel if you must, or enjoy the city in which you live and all of the beautiful things that come with it? And by nightfall, it's party time all over the place. The Lafayette Hotel celebrates its 70-year anniversary with a free party with Euphoria Brass Band among other musical guests. Meanwhile our friends Gone Baby Gone get the party going at the Ken Club, the Amandas shake things down at the Whistle Stop, and the Schizophonics Soul Revue should keep the sweat dripping all night long at the Casbah.
