Get ready for another hot and sweaty weekend, New York City.
We barely made it out alive of the heat dome, and now those of us who made it out are still stuck with another weekend of ridiculously high temperatures.
When are we ever gonna catch a break, huh, Mother Nature?
At least the weekend is still bumpin' with plenty of events to hit up.
Get up and hit the streets instead of sticking your head in the freezer all weekend.
We'll be pouring one out this weekend in hopes that this'll be the last sweaty as hell week we'll have to deal with this summer.

The artwork will be on display through the 30th, but come out tonight for a vibed out reception from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

City Summer Streets
It's the summer of water slides.
Sure, there'll be massive traffic in Manhattan this weekend because 60 blocks will become "shared streets" slow zone to accommodate for Summer Streets, but it's giving us the ability to slide down a 300 foot water slide in the middle of Manhattan, and that's a worthy price to pay.
