The Wyoming Brewer’s Festival. Need we say more? Yes, we know we thought this would be a great place to take dad for Father’s Day, but we also thought it would be a great place to cool down this weekend. Can you turn down an ice cold brew on a hot summer night? I sure can’t! There will be a total of 80 different brews to taste. How will you ever choose which ones to get? Along with enjoying your beers, you will be entertained with live bands and fed by great food vendors! Cool down with chilled brews and fun people this weekend at the Brewfest!

3. Ruby Juice
Smoothie and Cool!
For a refreshing, healthy treat, stop into Ruby Juice on E 17th Street in downtown Cheyenne. Take your taste buds to the tropics with slushy Tropical Fuze, or sip Alota Kolada while you stroll. Kick back in the shade with a Ruby Relaxer, or kick off errand running with a Blueberry Blitz. Whatever your plan for the weekend, Ruby Juice has your flavor of frozen, fruit treat to help you cool down. They’ll even let you create your own myriad of flavors! Ruby Juice offers health AND fun in a cup! Grab a light bite to eat there, as well. It’s a kickin’ way to cool down!
4. Capitol City Stadium 12
3410 Concord Rd. (map) 638-7469
It seems whenever you go to a movie in the winter the theatre is too cold, but in the summer it is the perfect place to go cool down! It is always refreshing to walk out of the heat and into a nice, cool, dark place and Capitol City Stadium is the place to do that. They set the thermostat at 72° F, which is certainly going to be better than a hot summer afternoon. While you are there, you can catch some flicks. Some movies you might want to check out are: Super 8, Bridesmaids, Cars 2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, or Cowboys and Aliens. Get a refreshing drink, sit back and enjoy the movie, and appreciate being in a dark 72° F instead of baking in the scorching sun!

Beat the heat, get off the street! Go to Fall Hall @ FE Warren Air Force Base!
