Good morning. How’s your coffee? It’s been a full week since we last touched base. Not only is it as hot as ever, but we are fully embedded in the dog days of June. What will Summer 2022 have in store? You can read my highly exaggerated local trend forecast to ponder this question. However, if you’re not the conspiratorial type and are more interested in taking things week by week, you’re in the right place. Here are 10 things happening across town this weekend (and some stuff happening a little bit after).
