Baltimore Summer Events!

If your own skin didn’t already inform you that it’s warm outside, there’s that overhead hum-drip of window-mounted air conditioners, the shimmering of heatwaves on every concrete surface, and the street vendors hollering about ice-cold snowballs and $1 bottles of water. In short, this week has brought summer on with an absolute furnace of tropical heat.
