Sweating Out August: Week Events 8/24 – 8/30

August keeps bringing the heat, so we can really feel the Sweatuation up in here. Now that SEPTA’s getting on board with bikes (h/t to Next City), we can celebrate this week with a movie, GPB’s Editor in a book reading and the Schulykill River.

Here’s the best events this week & weekend.
