And we mean very hot, as in, have you been outside? Oof. You could spend the weekend cooling off with more traditional means — may we suggest some ice cream? Or a cocktail? Or even just a nice, cold beer? — but you could also soldier on through the heat and check out one of the many events that will be happening during the heat wave. There’s Meatopia, of course, as well as the Great Hot Dog Cookoff in Fort Greene, and a luau at the Bell House. Head on over to New York for all the details on these events, and plenty more goings-on around town. [NYM]
