Well, it finally decided to get hot. Right as we're beginning to stare down the beginning of the school year and wind this Summer of 2013 down properly. We saw a lot of folks braving the 100+ degrees at the DCTA Food Truck Tuesday event yesterday. We were out there too, and decided to chilled our burning innards with Cucumber Lemonade from The Pickled Carrot. We've had it lucky this summer with enough mild days spent at the beach, Community Market and sipping on Greenhouse Ale at Oak Street Draft House that I suppose it's time to pay our dues as true Texans and Dentonites and be out in the heat a little. It just wouldn't feel like summer without it. So now that we've sweat a little, is it too early to be checking out the J Crew Fall Holiday Lookbook 2013? Everyone loves sweater weather, right?
