Things To Do This Labor Day Weekend

What is Labor Day?

Depending on who you ask, it is simply a day off from work or the unofficial end of summer. For a lot of us in this great nation (Labour Day is also celebrated in Canada), it means the final day this year to wear white pants and to have that one last backyard barbecue before the weather becomes cooler.

While the day itself is awesome enough (the first Monday of September), it’s the weekend that precedes it, that makes Labor Day special. Labor Day is not just the unofficial end of summer, but the end of having fun outdoors. That’s why for me, a well deserved beach day.

There are plenty of things to do during Labor Day weekend. Here are a list of some of my suggestions:

1) Parades
Being a native New Yorker, and having a husband from the West Indies, I tend to visit the West Indian Day Carnival and Children’s Parade in Brooklyn, NY. Hands down this is the best New York City parade. It’s colorful, no 5th Avenue Manhattan traffic to compete with, and the food! I highly recommend it. If you’re no where near Brooklyn or don’t want to visit, you can look up your local township, city, or boroughs and see what parades are going on near you.

2) Fireworks
This year, on the Friday before Labor Day, I plan to see fireworks. Usually, these are a part of another event. Whether the end of a celebrated week (Restaurant Week in some places), or the beginning of a new season (Back to School race / sale / street fair). I’m going to see fireworks on a beach. If the fireworks are not close to where you live, I recommend bringing a lawn chair, a sweater, and a camera to capture it.

3) Street Fairs / Concerts / Festivals / Craft Shows /Yard Sales
Usually your Friday / Weekend edition of your local newspaper will highlight events to take place during the weekend.

4) Barbecue
If you have no interest in really traveling far, have a barbecue. If your backyard isn't large enough, or if you have no interest in having people over, check the rules for your local park. Try to reserve ahead of time, and let your friends know as soon as possible. Want to save costs? Make it Potluck and /or BYOB.

5) Block parties
Usually this is something that is not widely advertised unless you live on the street where the party is happening, but you could research these parties too. Also look for rooftop parties, and hotel parties.

6) Mayor-sponsored walks / runs
If you’re looking for a reason to get physical outdoors, or look for that last philanthropic event before autumn, this weekend tends to have a lot of local walks and runs.

7) Special, one-time a year events
Where I am going this Labor Day weekend, there will be a huge car show. I will get my fill of classic Mustangs to last me until next year. There are plenty of car shows, but this one is huge and comes only once a year. August 31st or September 1st, depending where you are, is Brazilian Day. One word for you: Rodizio. If you don’t know what one is, may I suggest, you use Brazilian day to find out. You will thank me.

8) Stay indoors, doesn’t mean staying at home
Should Labor Day be a crappy weather wash-out, you can always stay indoors. Labor day weekend is a great time to see what movies and television shows are available for your viewing pleasure.

Whatever you decide to do, enjoy your time with the people that matter to you the most. Enjoy!!!

End Drunk Driving

All of your efforts to help save lives are working!
Thanks to your support, we have had a very successful year so far getting new legislation passed to help protect our loved ones from drunk driving.

Four states – Alabama, Mississippi, New Hampshire and Delaware – have passed all offender ignition interlock laws this year! In addition, laws requiring interlocks for first-time offenders with a BAC of .15 or higher were passed in South Carolina and in Rhode Island.

In Kansas, you helped us get the sunset clause on their current interlock law eliminated, which will means interlocks for all offenders will be a permanent law in Kansas. In West Virginia, your efforts helped pass a new law that strengthened the states’ all offender law and closed some administrative and technical loopholes. And finally, in Connecticut, together we got a new law passed that makes the state truly all offender.

And we’re not done yet. We are still working hard in several other states to get laws passed this year, including New Jersey, Ohio, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.

The passage of ignition interlock laws is a key element of MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving®. Requiring all convicted drunk drivers to use ignition interlocks to prove they are sober before they can start their vehicles has been shown to save lives and stop drunk driving. Click here to learn more about ignition interlocks.

Kudos for all of your efforts to help save lives and eliminate drunk driving. We are now one step closer to our vision of a nation without drunk driving!

About Time Someone Reinvented The Wheel (Chalkboard)

Chalk and Surface have been working together since our ancestors dwelt in caves. The concept itself hasn't changed for centuries. We thought it was time to modernize the chalkboard so we created the Message Board.

The Message Board are chalkboards customized for each user through our website. Add graphics, text and choose fun background colors.  The Message Board is magnetic so you can stick magnets of all types to the surface.  A proprietary Safety Hanger makes it easy to hang and secure. The Message Board is a writing tool, but it's also a piece of artwork and a conversation starter.

You can learn more about how we've reinvented the chalkboard at

Kitchen Innovation

At SUBWAY, it takes less than a minute to make a foot long sandwich with all the fixings. Think of all the time and energy you'd save if we brought this same healthy, super fast and mess free system to school lunches, picnics, potlucks and the home kitchen.  That's exactly why we created Prep & Serve.   
Prep & Serve is like SUBWAY in a box.  The first of its kind, up to 10 individual containers fit and seal all under one lid. Each inner container can be used on its own or they "SNAP" in place in the 9" x 13" prep box.  Store sauces, diced tomatoes, cold cuts, lettuce, onions and more with zero cross contamination.  When everything's ready it's easier to cook and plate.

Safe Cell 360?

More than 3,000 teens die each year in crashes caused by texting while driving.  It is now the leading cause of death for teenagers in America. As a father of three, I decided to tackle this epidemic head on.  That's why we created SafeCell 360.  We are making SafeCell 360 available for 2014/2015 school year for FREE to all teenage drivers.

SafeCell 360 is a motion sensing App that blocks and monitors all inbound and outbound SMS/text, phone and emails.  Designed to work on the iPhone and Android smartphone platforms. Parents can access a rich suite of driver metrics through our intuitive dashboard to ensure all pre-set phone and driving rules are being adhered too.  Automated reports are sent to parents on their teenage drivers cell usage while driving and when and where possible violations occurred.
