It's going to be super hot this weekend, so if you can swing it, hit the beach and catch some waves and breezes to keep cool. Not brave enough to tackle the daytime high-temps? There's plenty to do when the sun goes down, too! Here are some of the things going on this weekend for a hot child in the city to do.


--Summer Sweat 2 is on tonight at Amoeba Music in Hollywood from 8:00-10:00 pm. "DJ Brett Sweat and friends serve up a simmering summertime smorgasbord of hip hop, old school and roller boogie on the wheels of steel." 6400 Sunset Boulevard, (323) 245-6400.
