It’s hot outside - there’s no way around it and it’s common to experience temperatures well into the 80s and 90s during the summer months in the Twin Cities. For most homeowners, the heat means higher energy bills as air conditioning systems become an absolute necessity. But that doesn’t have to be the case - there are plenty of public establishments you can frequent in our very own neighborhoods in order to keep cool while giving your air conditioning system a much needed rest.
Minneapolis has three major libraries (Minneapolis Central, Walker and Southeast) that you can take advantage of. Sit down with your favorite book or magazine, surf the web or take some time to learn about something new. It’s also a great place to meet and interact with friends and neighbors.
You don’t necessarily need to crave coffee to frequent a local coffee shop. They are great places to grab a snack, take a date or get some work done in a comfortable and relatively quiet atmosphere.
Take some time to catch up on those flicks you’ve been meaning to see. The movie theater is a great place to hang out while keeping out of the sun. Whether you prefer to bring the entire family or take a solo trip, grab a soda and a fresh popcorn, sit back, relax and enjoy!
And remember, when you need your air conditioner serviced or repaired this summer, you can always count on the professionals at Uptown. Your friends and neighbors in the Twin Cities have relied on us for over 100 years.
