YES, there is still time to pick up a pool membership this summer and enjoy Summer outside…poolside! Pick up the Nassau Swim Club $249 End-of-Summer Enrollment Special for your family (swim July 23rd – September 5th). Offering lessons and designated areas for swimmers of all ages, the club also delivers community fun (Food Truck Fridays, anyone?) www.nassauswimclub.org
Pick Up Some of the Cold Stuff: Ice Cream, Fro-yo and Juices!
Since their doors opened in 1979 Thomas Sweet has been a fixture in the town of Princeton and in the hearts and minds of generations of Thomas Sweet fans! Their one-of-a-kind ‘blend in’ ice creams were an instant hit – a wonderful chilly solution to a steamy Princeton summer. Our favorite flavor? Why Jersey Shore of course (vanilla with sea salted caramel). www.thomassweet.com
Family owned One Sweet Place opened its doors this Spring in the heart of Hopewell. Scooping Bassetts ice cream, serving fresh store baked goods daily with classic sodas and candy, this sweet spot is a Summer must! Keep an eye out for their yummy events this summer. www.onesweetplace.net
No need to head to the East Village NYC when you can indulge in 16 Handles frozen yogurt here in Princeton! Whether you are in the mood for Orange Tart or a cup of Chocolate Love Affair, this frozen yogurt spot boasts an endless list of yogurt and topping combinations. www.16handles.com/locations/princeton
Cold pressed juice is so refreshing in the heat and so good for your mind and body. Stop into Arlee’s Raw Blends for fresh raw blended juice made in house daily from organically grown produce. Too hot to drive over? Call as they deliver to the Princeton area! www.arleesrawblends.com
Cool Off… Inside!
Have a summer date night in the Cezanne room at Pinot’s Palette paint and sip studio! You paint one side part of a heart painting and your date the other.

Summer Fun in Town, For Everyone!
With Palmer Square bringing live music to town every Saturday this Summer, the anticipated annual Sidewalk Sale from 8/5-8/7, plus one more family-friendly movie under the stars on the Green (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs anyone? 8/19), Summer on Palmer Square is just hitting its stride! www.palmersquare.com/events
