On July 4th, get their classic sandwich, the Old School, for just $4! It’s classic peanut butter with your choice of strawberry jam, grape jam, or marshmallow fluff.
Are peanut butter and jelly sandwiches not your jam? Then head to Beelman’s to get your burger on! They have a few options on the menu, but to keep it traditional, order the Impossible burger. This beauty has Impossible meat, chipotle aioli, tomato, greens, spicy ketchup, and pickles hugged by a brioche bun! You can’t go wrong with that!
If you want to stray from the burger route but are still craving a cookout classic, stop by Organix for a hot dog! Their gourmet vegan dog has beer brat sausage,Veganaise, mustard, ketchup, grilled onions, and bell peppers with the option to add kraut or bacon on top! While you’re there, grab a few items from their marketplace to take home for your own cookout! They have limited hours on the 4th so call to make sure they’re open before you stop by!
How about a refreshing side dish to fuel up after a dip in the pool? Counterpart Deli offers many classic sides for you to choose from including purple coleslaw, jackfruit ‘chicken’ salad, chimichurri pasta salad, and potato salad!
Corn on the cob makes for the perfect all-American meal add-on! Take it to the next level by hitting up this high-end West Hollywood spot to try their street corn with chipotle aioli, pumpkin seed parmesan, and a squeeze of lemon. Wash it down with one of their fresh teas or cocktails!

Quench your thirst with a mouthwatering lemonade from this vegan-friendly spot! From classic lemonade to more unique flavors like peach ginger, watermelon, cucumber mint, and more, there’s something for everyone! We recommend the watermelon flavor because nothing says the Fourth of July quite like juicy watermelon! Pair it with some of their vegan eats like curried cauliflower or red quinoa with Fuji apples, but make sure to get there by 7 pm as they’re closing early!
The Karma Baker
If you’re looking for a fresh and fruity dessert to bring to your pool party, stop by the Karma Baker and pick up a cream fruit tart or strawberry cheesecake!

Summer months are very busy for shelters, so if the time is right for you to adopt a dog, take a trip to your nearby shelter!
