Remember that Kool and the Gang song “Too Hot”? Well, heat is the way across most of the country. If you have any elderly or shut-in folks, please be neighborly and check on them if the mercury is registering temps in your area of 90 degrees and above. And that’s certainly likely as the U.S. is experiencing the hottest year on record thus far. Fortunately things are heating up on the entertainment front as well. The last of “The Dark Knight” movies heads into theaters in a week, and several acts including Eric Benet and Ledisi and Maze, Patti Labelle and the O’Jays are still on the road. Check out what’s happening around your way this weekend but whatever you do, stay cool.
