We spoke to an author today who’s coming to sign some books at Blue Bicycle in a few weeks. Y’all heard of the 5th Wave? Yeah, that guy. Anyway, he said, “I hope it isn’t hot when I’m there,” and we laughed like maniacs. Because, it’s hot as heck. Cool off this weekend with some indoor art shows, outdoor beer fests, and a healthy dose of dancin’. Giddy up.
