July Events + 4th of July Weekend

Ah Summertime, you’ve finally joined us. Don’t tell her I said this, but Spring really overstayed her welcome. The Tomatoes certainly didn’t appreciate it, and now they’re a little depressed and droopy. But here’s some good news: in celebration of your (late) arrival, the Riverwest Public House has some great July programming, starting with a jam-packed 4th of July Weekend. Tonight, a night of local DJs, drinking and dancing. Tomorrow, Freddie Lee’s CD release for “Here’s Your Hat, Man.” Then on Sunday, we’re having a Pre-4th of July Freedom Fest. All the crucial details are below, so check ’em out. And next time, Summer, give us a break and get here on time.
