Melt-worthy options

The hot weather makes it easy to submit to the lure of ceiling fans and Choco Tacos.

While inactivity is tempting, there are way too many reasons to brave the body odor and pale legs this weekend. So many, in fact, that you might even forget your catastrophic air conditioning bill.

Friday, kick the weekend off by catching a performance by The Cove at Soho Bar & Grill (5751 Milgen Road). The act's name makes it sound like a ska band from San Diego, but they're really just four local guys who do a mix of covers and original tunes.

They're joined here by special guest Sacred Hollow, and the show starts at 10 p.m. Cover is $5. Call 706-568-3316.

Saturday, bolster your collection of cute shirts by hitting the newly opened maurices (5550 Whittlesey Road). The popular women's fashion retailer spans everything from work attire to going-out gear. Saturday hours are 10 a.m.-9:30 p.m.

Finally, end your weekend with dinner at the Mediterranean Cafe (5300 Sidney Simons Blvd.). There's a Sunday dinner buffet for just $9.95. Maybe the restaurant's exoticism will send you home imagining cool breezes.
