Ah, summer is here. Can you smell it? If you’re like me and the sprouting weeds and blossoming trees have wreaked havoc on your once empty sinus cavities, probably not. Summer means many things to many people. To me, aside from the whole allergy thing, it means the pinnacle of outdoor hangout season is officially upon us. Don’t get me wrong winter can be nice for a bonfire, but as soon as Memorial Day has passed and the mercury has risen, the seasons for cookouts, barbecues (no, they’re not the same thing, more on that later,) pool parties, and tailgates are officially here! So, set aside those last few stouts in your beer fridge until the next snowfall and hope time treats them well. Grab yourself some summertime brews, gas up the lawn mower, pop some Claratin, and get ready for the best year of outdoor entertainment yet.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but summer is almost over. So thank God for new music, right? July2013 brought us a new contender for “song of the summer” with the Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake collaboration, Holy Grail. Other new releases included The Civil Wars, Franz Ferdinand and a new single from Pearl Jam. Enjoy the waning days of summer with this brand-spanking new PorchDrinking playlist!
