How to Beat the Heat
Hardly a conversation starts these days without mentioning the heat. Basically, we’re all melting, or it seems that way. Too hot … for a taco street party (the new date for our Taco Tour Kick-off is October 11)! Wickedly warm for the Hot Summer Nights concert series every Thursday night in June and July, yet music fans have braved the heat wave as the sun goes down. We North Texans are tough, but some COOL would definitely be welcome!
So, we're offering a few ideas to take you through the rest of summer. Sherman Community Players is presenting its annual summer benefit for two weekends, July 29-31 and August 5-7. This dinner theater event in the Honey McGee Playhouse features a three-course dinner and a production of Ken Ludwig’s A Comedy of Tenors, directed by Aaron Adair. Call 903-892-8818 for tickets, and enjoy the air conditioning! If you can’t make it to the benefit, you also can get your 2022-2023 season tickets now through the SCP website.
You can drive around the Cultural District in your climate-controlled car to see the growing number of public art displays in downtown. Check out our map to locate these creative installations, or if you would rather stay home, you can view them in the virtual gallery on our website. The newest mural, pictured here, wraps the Presco manufacturing building on Montgomery Street in some amazing geometric shapes designed by local artist Heather Shields.
Several new eateries, along with the familiar places, offer an indoor retreat from the heat. You’ll find wineries, pubs, bars, coffee houses, sandwich shops, taquerias, and more around the Cultural District. Grab a friend and enjoy the local flavors of some hometown favorites. You also can enjoy some retail therapy at our downtown shops.
We're already thinking about the annual Sherman Arts Fest in September, and then the many fall events that celebrate life in Sherman. Think cool and stay connected, and we’ll see you around downtown!
