In this weeks issue, we offer our readers our 2008 Summer Guide, with the theme 111 Things to Do This Summer. But really, we lied. There are tons of things to do this summer. This was just the tip of the iceberg.
When I sat down to edit it, I had well more than 111 to choose from (which was the idea), so there was some serious whittling down. But that shouldnt stop us from providing the ones that didnt make it into print, should it? So here are the rest of the blurbs. We should also note that with the comprehensive work done on the Summer Guide often means an even healthier updating of all of our listings, which I strongly recommend checking out for further summer planning.
