Weekly deals & more: Aug. 15-21

Remember those dog days of summer, when the streets seemed empty, there were no waits at the restaurants, and the lines at the bars were short? Those days, at least for the most part, are about to be over.

Most of the K-12 kids around town are back in school this week, and the UA students will be back in session on Aug. 22.

That means things are about to come to life around here. For more evidence of this fact, just look at the long list of things happening around town this week below.
