Even though we as adults don’t necessarily get an extended summer vacation, the memory of childhoods spent basking in a solar hug from June to August — wiping dripping Popsicles from our hands and jumping through sprinklers — stays with us. And our Summer Guide celebrates and recognizes all those wistful traditions with a grown-up twist.
Inside, you’ll find a guide to some of the season’s best street festivals, events and outdoor parties; recipes for quintessential chilled summer cocktails; a no-obligation summer reading list; expert tips and techniques for turning the grill into the hearth and heart of the home this season; a collection of neighborhood creamy whips and root beer stands; some public pools; a historic drive-in movie theater; the summer’s best-bet blockbuster films; and more.
So get ready to put on your bathing suit and grab a burger — the Summer Guide is here.
(And if you don’t feel like reading it, at least you can fan away some of that drinking-on-the-patio sweat with it.)
