5 Independence Day Situations You Want to Escape From

It’s the 4th of July, which means that it’s time for people to get pumped about all things American. There will be BBQs, cookouts, and family gatherings a-plenty — and we all know those come with a ton of situations you won’t want to be a part of. Some might even say you’d like to escape them.

See what we did there?

Uncle Kev Has Slugged One Too Many Mike’s Hard Lemonades

We all know Uncle Kev loves his Mike’s. But unfortunately it’s not even 4PM and he’s already on Mike #5. Which means by 6PM, he’ll be on Mike #10. Which means by 7PM, he’ll be in the pool with all his clothes on.

Somebody in Your Family Can’t Stop Talking About Politics and You’re Just Tryna Eat a Dang Burger

Family gatherings are especially precarious these days, as there is always the group of cousins that voted the opposite way you did. They’re spending the whole day try to convince you that you voted the wrong way, but the burgers are ready and ain’t nobody got time for that. It’s time to grub.


Instead of escaping your 4th of July plans, why not escape with us? Book now.
