Celebrate The Summer Solstice With The Coolest Seasonal Food And Fun On Melrose

BEEFSTEAK

 When it feels like 1000 degrees but you need to eat something, a cool, fresh salad is always a good choice. A hyper-healthy, organic, and tasty salad from Beefsteak is the good choice on Melrose. Perfect for summer, the Sunflower Caesar with sunflower dressing and hemp seeds is quite satisfying.

ROYAL FLORIST

URBAN OUTFITTERS

Put down the digital and pick up the original: a vintage Polaroid instant camera. Vivid summer memories look somehow just look more “summery” when they slide out of a camera and slowly develop in front of your eyes. Grab one at Urban Outfitters, but don’t forget – these need film!

THE WINDOW

Look at this! The Window outdid itself with this find, an organic wood swing circa the ‘70s. Built for two (or for solo lounging), this amazing piece of fun furniture is exactly what gentle summer livin’ calls for. No yard? No problem. This beauty will look and feel just as good indoors.
