I miss Chicago summers. Sure, they're hot and they're ridiculously humid, but at least that helps you tell the difference between the seasons. And there's always something going on; people outside during the day enjoying the sun, the street fairs, and the good mood, and then at night the party starts.

So, as we cruise on out of this here APA heritage month and into June, here are a handful of things happening in the community that should keep your summer lively. I'm with you in spirit.
