While the summer heat lingers on, here are a few things you might want to do to stay cool.

  1. Watch the Opening of Crazy Rich Asians, Wednesday August 15

Chu, Crazy Rich Asians is a comedy-drama about a New York native, Rachel Chu (played by Constance Wu), visiting Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s family, realizing they’re incredibly wealthy. Jealousy surrounds her as the women try to bring her down. Featuring an all-Asian cast–the first time in 25 years since the Joy Luck Club–as Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh, Awkwafina, Gemma Chan, and Ken Jeong, Crazy Rich Asians should be a hit not to be missed.

2. Get your swim on at the pool, until September 9
