It’s coming – the first very hot day of the short summer. The forecast is calling for temperatures into the 90s on Thursday. Add in some humidity and it’ll be uncomfortable – sending you searching for somewhere to stay cool. Here are some ideas and feel free to add yours in the comments section at the bottom.
There’s no better place to sit back and relax in the comfort of air conditioning than the library. Grab a book, magazine or jump on the Internet, it’s a great retreat to beat the heat. The library is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and until 5 p.m. on Friday.
Iced coffee is the way to go on a hot day. At Henderson’s, choose from regular or decaffeinated plus some tasty flavors such as French roast, French vanilla, hazelnut, coconut and blueberry. Plus, Henderson’s now has ice cream, another great treat on a hot day.
Nothing says summer like an ice-cold iced coffee or Coolatta at Dunkin Donuts. And even though the Dunkin Donuts at the Shoppes at Hamilton Crossing has just a handful of seats inside, grab the cold drink to go and head out. Just having a cold drink in your hand will make you feel all that much more cooler.
When it gets hot out, there’s one chore that seems to become a bit more attractive – grocery shopping. Crosby’s is an air-conditioned oasis and it’s particularly enticing when you get to that left rear corner with the milk, cheese and beer. All that cold air feels great.
Going out for dinner on a hot evening is always a great way to stay cool. And an especially cool dish is a salad. At the Black Cow, choose from a Caesar salad, house salad or wedge salad and add salmon, chicken or steak tip on top to make it more filling but still keep it a cool dish.
