This summer, there’s a lot to do (or, you know, be lazy and not do)


There’s nothing quite like summer, right? The salty ocean air, the sweaty, suntanned bodies, the electric nights, the big cinematic blockbusters, the pool parties and afternoons on the boat, the barbecues, the kids out of school, the weekends spent lounging on the couch when you should be mowing your yard, because damn it’s hot out there and some basic cable channel is running a Star Wars marathon.

There’s a lot to do (or, you know, be lazy and not do). We’re here to help: From sports to arts to movies to booze to food, what follows is our Ultimate Summer Guide, your one-stop-shop for, well, everything that matters. If you don’t have fun this summer, it’s your own fault. — Jeffrey C. Billman
