I’m not sure if you guys have noticed, but over the past couple days, it’s been a little bit warm out there.
It’s not like any of us should be surprised. It’s July in Northwest Arkansas. We probably should have seen this coming.
This time of year, I like to find relief from this July heat in the form of a frosty beverage of some sort, and there are lots of those on special at some of our favorite watering holes around town below. Find a cool spot somewhere out of the sun, will ya?
