For those LIL readers who do not reside in the fair city of Portland, I’d like to call your attention to the insane heat wave that has swept the region in the past few days. Do you see that madness up there? It’s nearly as hot as Phoenix! We seldom see temperatures above the mid-nineties in the summer, but there too, we rarely see several feet of snow like we did this past December, so I suppose we should’ve seen this coming. The pendulum swings mightily these days. I recommend that my fellow Portlanders hole up in an air conditioned room asap, but barring that sweet bliss, I would say, “Take me to the river!” We’ll be closing early today so that I don’t faint, but if you need a stylish Malia Mills bathing suit to keep you going in this record breaking heat, we’ll be open until 3pm.
