It's Fourth of July weekend and, while the big show is Monday, there are plenty of things to do the rest of the weekend. You can drink in your favorite superhero, go on a bacon and beer crawl, or enjoy a poolside mango-themed barbecue with a special pop-up guest, the Salty Donut.

Happy birthday, America!
