Due-ly

We are due for a sunny Summer, and it's happening (at least for now). Get out in the city and embrace warmth. I enjoy this dorky video: First World Problems.

This is my schedule (and it could be yours!) for the rest of July: Pizza fundraisers, Conservatory of Flowers after hours on Wednesday, Nightlife on Thursday, and early fun on Sunday. Oh, and Tuesday night (the opposite of running/healthy activity): McSweeney's Mission Street Food Cookbook Launch party 7pm Makeout Room. $7 for Popeye's (utilizing the kinda-atrocious $1 chicken/thigh Tuesday special, me thinks) and unlimited Black Star beer. Go gluttony and independent lit/food! --------------------------------------------------------------- Fri 8:
