The summer heat is approaching in the Yakima Valley, we've already hit some pretty high numbers and it's only the start. If you're lucky enough to have gotten your hands on an air conditioner or have one that's newer you're probably cooling off in the comfort of your own home.

However, if you're like us, you get to enjoy the AC at work and come home to a house filled with fans, and I'm not talking about the adoring kind. Lucky for you there are plenty of places to cool off and enjoy a cold drink.
