Get The Jump On Your 5/19 – 5/25 Plans.
Early summer is the best.
For starters, it's not too hot to lounge by the pool all day — or, really, to partake in any other outdoor activities, for that matter.
It's also the sweet spot for all the best album releases of the year. On those fronts, there are — count 'em! — three excellent local album releases to celebrate this week.
And, not to be outdone, you'll have four different opportunities to shop at outdoor popup markets this week, too.
The only question is this: Where will you bask in this glorious weather this week?
