    It’s so hot! Surviving the heat wave

    On Friday the big news was the heat.

    We all tried to go about the day without melting. At the Italian Market it was business as usual, but if you couldn’t get in front of an air conditioner, the best escape may have been sneaking off to John’s Water Ice for lunch.

    We hit the burning asphalt to to find out: “Is it hot enough for you?”

    We think it probably is. Stay cool, Philly.
