Weekend Flashback: 7/1-7/4

I’ve watched the movie 1776, and I think we need to celebrate July 5th like the Founding Fathers did. That is, drink amazing amounts of fermented molasses, pat ourselves on the back for plagiarizing the ideas of John Locke the day before, and get very little done at work. While you think over the notion of celebrating this day traditionally, take a minute (or thirty) and check out the “All American,” extra large, Flashback from the three day weekend.

Something to note: You’ll notice an amazing lack of firework pictures. That’s because our group was flooded with so many awesome shots of the fireworks, we decided to do a dedicated Fireworks Flashback. It’ll run later today, so get your fireworks photos into the We Love DC Flickr group if you want them considered!

Brian is so DC. Born on Pennsylvania Ave (not there) to a lifelong Federal worker father and a mother who has worked for Garfinkel’s, the Smithsonian, and Mount Vernon. Raised on the “mean streets” of Cheverly, MD; went to high school at Gonzaga College High School (Hail Alma Mater!); and now trolls the corridors of Congress as a lobbyist, you couldn’t write a more quintessentially DC back-story. When he isn’t trying to save the country from itself, Brian can be found walking DC looking for that perfect photograph.

  1. @Joe Zuber: You’ll have to contact the photographer directly, as we have no rights to the photos other than to use them with proper credit. Just click on the name next to “courtesy of,” and you’ll get to their Flickr page, which has contact info.
