If you like it hot and sweaty, then this summer has been the best of times. I grew up in New Orleans so I don’t mind the heat and humidity. Good thing, because even when I went up to Provincetown a couple of weekends ago, I arrived just in time for their first stretch of 90-degree temperatures.
It was great: Everywhere you went, there was nothing but sweaty bears as far as the eye could see!
Back in Philly, the heat is putting everyone in a slow summertime groove. But that doesn’t mean the parties are slowing down! Check out these events if you’re still looking for that fresh summer romance, or if you and your honey just need somewhere to chill.

Join singer-songwriter and hometown hero James at his annual Philly birthday bash from 7:30-10 p.m. Aug. 10 at the Tin Angel, 20 S.
