SWELTER ALERT: summer heat hits Birmingham, July 29-31, with temps in the 90s. While sweating is not for me, there are lots of fun ways to stay cool—pools, splash pads, ice cream + slushies to name a few. I also suggest staying in the delightful A/C and scrolling through events + more happening around the ‘ham this weekend.
