It’s so hot outside that it almost feels cold, which may or may not be healthy…But we’ve got some ‘cool’ activities to get you out of the sun and into the AC. Or, if the heat is your thing, we’ve got more than enough outdoor events to help you celebrate the summer sun. But no matter what, don’t let the heat beat you out of Father’s Day fun. Treat Dad to brunch or even take him fishing. Just be sure to get out and enjoy the weekend.
