The ice is in the cooler. The hot dogs are on the grill. The only thing missing is which six-pack should be at the barbecue this year for the Fourth of July.
And because it's a celebration of America, you've got to buy domestic. That rules out Budweiser, Miller and, potentially, Coors (with its binational status) -- sorry 30-pack fans. And with Four Loko no longer packing an alcoholic punch, your likely top choice is also out of the running. So given an open checkbook at the liquor store, what should the rest of this city be drinking this weekend and next Monday?
