Red, Wine, And Booze: A Guide To Your Best Memorial Day Weekend Ever

Memorial Day is finally upon us, which means so is the official start to summer. While celebrating the awesome men and women of our country, do so in style. We’ve created the ultimate guide for MDW, so find out how to make the most of your three days off.

1. Go somewhere awesome– that won’t break the bank.

The beach is always a good time, but try somewhere that’ll be less crowded- i.e. Boston, Washington D.C., Austin, Charleston, Savannah, etc.

2. Wear something you already have in your closet. Think that’s lame? Think again.

Guaranteed you have red, white, and blue somewhere stashed in your closet. They are pretty generic colors, after all. Rather than buying an overpriced tank top somewhere, just do some digging, find your own, and vua-la! You’ll look cute AF.

3. Don’t worry about sticking to your diet.

Calories don’t count on your birthday, and they certainly don’t count on holiday. Go ahead and eat that hot dog, and cheeseburger, and another hot dog.

4. Shop till you drop.

One of the greatest things about this time of year (besides the weather) is the shopping. There are SO many sales, that you would be silly not to take advantage of them.

5. Booze up.

There are a TON of fun cocktails to make. Yes, this is actually something you can look for on Pinterest and be successful at.

6. Honor thehot men (and women).

While you’re stuffing your faces and drowning yourself in wine slushies, don’t forget to give thanks to our badass soldiers. If it weren’t for them, you wouldn’t have the life you have today, which my guess is probably pretty damn good.

Cheers and be safe.
