Assuming that you don’t melt by tomorrow as per our third heatwave of summer ’17 (because we might), there are a few happenings that you can add to your agenda this weekend. Saturday, the Bronx Brewery is having a party and where there’s cold beer there’s good times and relief from the heat. But, if you’re looking for something more low-key, popcorn and chill at movie night on Fordham plaza. Or do both! Sunday, The Bronx Museum continues their Boogie on the Blvd summer block party series on the Concourse with family-friendly actives, entertainment, etc. For all the deets on the aforementioned fun, scroll on!
