Happy Birthday America

Happy 235th Birthday America.  To celebrate, I drank beer from ”America’s Oldest Brewery’ and celebrated my grandmother’s 90th birthday party.

Even though this is a day late, there is also a nice little playlist I created to celebrate America.  Each song references our great country in its own way: some unique, others patriotic, some traditional and some actually make a mockery of America, f-ck yeah. Listen to America’s Birthday here:
