With this year’s Independence Day falling on a very unlikable Tuesday, Oklahoma City and her surrounding neighbors will be celebrating America’s birthday in damn-near the middle of the week, which is always the worst time to celebrate anyone’s birthday. Invite the entire office to Chili’s for a Wednesday birthday and it’s only Linda from accounting who’s down to split a plate of Southwestern eggrolls and even she bails after 15 minutes.
