Is is hotter anywhere else on earth at the moment? Probably yes, but still it's a scorcher. It's so hot that planning what to wear to work becomes difficult. I have several summer dresses that I grabbed and then put back because most of them have those dreadful synthetic linings that stick to your skin when you attempt to move at all in the heat. Who puts those things in them? Ever heard of cotton? An antitdote to this oppressive heatwave is ice cream, so don't forget:
The Center for Southern Folklore is having its first pre-event in support of the Memphis Music & Heritage Festival on Tuesday evening, July 12, 2011, from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM at MaggieMoo’s, 125 S. Main Street, next door to the Center’s Folklore Store. Stop by MaggieMoo’s tonight from 5:00 to 9:00 to hear some fabulous music and purchase ice-cream, floats, cupcakes and cakes. A percentage of every sale supports the Center’s Festival.
Another way to keep cool: dragon boats! This Friday, July 15, is Dragon Boat demo day at Mud Island in anticipation of the Dragon Boat Races coming up September 24. Read all about it here.
It's Tuesday so it's Ladies Day at the Corkscrew which gives you yet another opportunity to cool down. When it's hot I like the rosé of the "Chicken Wine" or as some people like to call it Vieille Ferme .
