Perfectly healthy people from coast to coast are already calling in sick for Thrillist’s Best Day of Your Life, the nation’s greatest new national holiday, and we want YOU to join their ranks. Spend all day Friday, June 21st hitting up the best restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and more that your city has to offer — as chosen by local Thrillist readers and editors.

Be on the lookout for Thrillist editors, who will be giving away complimentary high fives (and maybe some extra goodies too), and use Foursquare to check in at our #BDOYL locations for the chance to score freebies, discounts, and more!
