Constitution Day? You mean Constitution Weekend!

We’re kicking off our weekend with a celebration of Constitution Day! Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.

Get your Constitution Day celebration started with a traditional Constitution Day treat: nothing says USian like a traditional dish of apple pie with a slice of American cheese top. Or perhaps a deliciously American hamburger? A Sam Adams brew? I myself will be celebrating with a Jones soda and a vegan burrito, but you know, to each their own.

We also have some great reads to take you from Constitution Day through the weekend:
