Need plans for this extra long summer weekend? Cook up some Thug Kitchen classics and get your ass outside. These recipes are tried and true summer staples and the public park down the street is free. Set up somewhere you can watch some fireworks if your neighborhood does that shit. And you know someone is gonna be popping them off regardless of restrictions. Tasty food, people-watching, and possibly illegal pyrotechnics make for a pretty kickass weekend.

Do your fucking part
