We might be just over two weeks from the official start of summer, but there is little doubt that summer has already come to Tampa.  With one week until Hillsborough County Schools let out for the summer, we will all be looking for distractions and entertainment for both ourselves and the wee ones.  In that vein, I have put together a variety of happenings that are adult and family friendly to help pass the long hot days of June.  Starting today with live entertainment for downtown lunchers and extending to the 30th with movies in the museum for the kids, this month offers a variety of events from athletic alcohol activities to plant pondering programs.  Have a great June, stay cool and be good to one another.
