This weekend is going to be a scorcher so I’ve decided to pick events to enjoy inside where it will be nice and cool. Here are my top picks for the weekend. Also, if you are looking to cool off with some ice cream I recommend checking out the new Two Roosters Ice Cream Shop that just opened in North Raleigh. If you are in Durham, there is no better place to grab a cone than at The Parlour. Stay cool and happy exploring!
