8.) Above all else, spend the holiday with family and friends at the many local, independent businesses around North Texas. That’s what we Weeklyteers will be up to Mon-Tue. Not working. Nope. Not doing it. Like many of you, we will enjoy a four-day weekend, then tumble into the workweek early Wednesday. (Translation: The Weekly offices will be closed for the holiday. Next week’s paper will be put to bed a day late and hit the stands Thu, Jul 6, for our first issue of July.) Be safe out there!
