Summer sucks. At least in the city. At least in this city, where it's so smoggy and sticky and stinky. But don't just sit and sweat. Get out and make the best of it. City Paper's annual Sizzlin' Summer calendar can help.
In these pages, we tell you what there is to do between now and Labor Day, and not just in our miserable muggy metropolis but the entire Baltimore-Washington region. We even sample sights and such from all over Maryland, its neighboring states, and exotic, faraway New Jersey.
After you've pored through our slew of features and reviews--all with a summer twist--head to the calendar. First up are simple listings of music and theater everywhere, then there's a more detailed rundown of the rest, organized geographically. And the best thing is that much of what follows is in the great indoors. In the A/C. The cool, cool A/C. Ah. Sizzlin' Summer 2002 was written by Ronald Hube.
