You can check my math on this, but I am pretty sure the Fourth of July is coming up soon. It's a day filled with BBQ, beer, and beaches. Or none of that, if you so choose. That's what is great about the good ol' USA. You have the freedom to either consume barbecue and beer at the beach, and you have the freedom to do something else.
You don't see the British having this freedom, do you? Seriously, when was the last time you saw an Englishman eating BBQ? It's such an absurd thought I can't even imagine what it would look like.
What I'm saying is enjoy your freedom to eat and drink whatever, because not every place has that luxury. Or do they?
