If you're in search of "refreshing" on a steamy day, the Watermelon Agua Fresca from Taco Bite near the post office is a good choice. Ripe watermelon becomes liquid with ever so little coaxing. Bonus: straw wrapper art!
To cool me off further, a window air conditioner dripped into my lap from overhead as I sipped. And two fire hydrants had been opened across the street, much to neighborhood children's delight.
In other news, my shrimp quesadilla contained broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. It didn't need all that. The tortilla was crisped perfectly and the shrimp tasted great.
