Hot Tuesday To Do

Buy Fresh Buy Local is having a happy hour at the Standard Tap from 6 to 7:30. Or get your quiz tip on at either O’neals or the Bards tonight. Foobooz editor Trivia Art is filling in for the ego-maniacal Johnny Goodtimes.

If the heat has you thinking I’d rather a cool treat, we second Philebrity’s suggestion (last item), go to John’s Water Ice at 7th & Christian. And if you get a brain freeze try this MSN Health tip out:

Press your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth, covering as much as you can. “Since the nerves in the roof of your mouth get extremely cold, your body thinks your brain is freezing, too,” says Abo. “In compensating, it overheats, causing an ice-cream headache.” The more pressure you apply to the roof of your mouth, the faster your headache will subside.
