Happy Memorial Day Weekend: the inaugural weekend of everything great in the year. Sure, Memorial Day weekend marks the start of the biggest and most entertaining movies of the year, with Hangover II, X-Men, Transformers 3, Captain America, and my personal favorite 5Nal Destination. But we aren’t here to talk about sitting in a dark theater this weekend (sorry, nerds). MDW is no time to be sitting inside. Pools (and pool bars) open this weekend. Barbecues abound. Beaches open all their carnival rides where you think you may die the entire time while riding them. And of course, girls begin wearing skirts every day for the next three months. There is literally no activity in the world that isn’t made better by the presence of pools, grills (the cooking kind, not blinged out teeth, although you could make an argument for either), and hot girls. And that’s what we are here to celebrate. We’ll be back next week, but in the meantime, enjoy the weekend, and this slideshow of some pictures of the hottest girls we could find doing Memorial Day related activities.
