It’s the last week of July already? How did that happen? Luckily this week is packed with enough fun things to do that it’ll seem like a month, and if you party hard enough then every week in August can feel like a month, too, and there you have it -- five more months of summer. You’re welcome.

What did the humidity say to the heat? “It’s not you, it’s me!” (That joke also works with “What did the DiGiorno pizza say to delivery?” or “What did HBO say to TV?”) Try not to laugh so hard you forget to put on deodorant, because it’s pretty sticky out there and a lot of this weekend’s events are happening outside, and this is America where we possess a relatively low tolerance for other people’s body odor -- one of our greatest cultural achievements along with football and jazz music.

Photos: Boston Parties on Wheels to Celebrate Donna Summer
Photos
Friday night, Boston showed its groovy side, putting on a free roller disco party on City Hall Plaza. Thousands showed up to show their tastiest roller rink moves, many in retro garb, moving to the sounds of Dorchester's DJ Kon. The event was created with the help of Together Boston in order to honor the late great Donna Summer, who passed away last year. Some of Summer's greatest hits were played, and disco culture was revived in Boston for one hot summer night. More

Readings at the Bar, Shakespeare on the Common, and More Events This Week
Boston events
Another week, another set of sweet options for stuff to do in Boston: Drink for a good cause, learn how to make drinks for a good cause (drinking delicious drinks), or see some free Shakespeare on the Common, probably without the drinks because those plays are hard enough to understand when you’re sober.

Boston events
This past weekend, artists and sand-builders of all kinds took to Revere Beach to show off their sand craftsmanship for the 11th annual Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival. We were there with camera in hand (and sunblock, of course), to give you a glimpse at some of the finest sand creations of the weekend and the artists behind them. No offense to your dribble castles, but these structures were on an entirely new level. Check it out: More

Five DIY Shandies to Try at This Weekend’s Drink Craft Beer Summerfest
Boston events

Have you been converted by the Narragansett Del’s Shandy cult yet?

Say what you will about shandies. Even if you find some of them too sweet or cloying for your tastes, you can’t deny that Harpoon’s Big Squeeze, Steigl’s Radler (#TeamRadler) and that ever-ubiquitous green and yellow tallboy can (that’s been flying off shelves since mid-May) have caught on big time this summer.
