Today would have been Andy Warhol's 80th birthday. If you are wondering how to properly celebrate, we have a few suggestions to ensure a Warhol-inspired day.

1. Go to Pittsburgh. Andy's birthplace is a great place to start and while you are there you can visit the museum and the artist's grave.

2. Wear a wig. His commonly seen "silver fright" wig was not real despite how great he made it appear.

3. Tell everyone that you are celebrating Warhol's birthday! He loved fame and parties and would love to know that he is the center of your world today.

4. If you are not interested in a road trip or frivolous purchase, eat soup! Warhol ate soup for lunch every day for 20 years and look how fabulous he looked.
