Did you know John Adams thought July 2nd would be forever remembered as our Independence Day? That was the day the Second Continental Congress approved the motion for independence. John Adams told his wife, Abigail, in a letter, "The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary Festival... It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more." Ya hear that? Shews! Of course, others celebrate Independence Day on July 4th. We've decided to split the difference and take off July 3rd. Also, we think the restaurant will be slow that day.
