While pondering the awesomeness of America and the holiday that celebrates it, we here at Squid Ink realized that over the years we've produced a lot of content that might help in your celebration needs. So instead of making you search the web for this content, why not put it all here in one handy post?

Booze, pies and more — turn the page for five articles that will help make your holiday (and the holiday weekend after it) so much better.   

5. Liquor!
