What to Do/See/Hear | June 20-June 26

Are you still with us? Last weekend’s blast of heat and humidity was enough to melt anyone … or at least drive us all inside. No doubt our summer has more tandoori days in store, but this weekend promises a more merciful climate. That’s good, because there are many outdoor events worth your time in the next seven days. Indoor ones, too, for the once-burned-twice-shy among you.
