Our favorite sites for summer

Posted on

Fets Need some warm-weather websites? EW staffers name their favorites, from ice cream recipes to surf reports…

Could anything be better on a lazy summer afternoon than kicking back with a glass of iced tead and a baseball game on the radio? MLB.com streams the live feeds of every team’s local play-by-play guys, from the mighty New York Yankees to the hapless Washington Nationals. Chris Nashawaty

Whether it’s Bruce Springsteen at Bonnaroo or Lily Allen at Glastonbury, the exhaustive Musicfestivaljunkies.com (pictured) has all the latest news, reviews, dates, and lineups for the season’s best fests. — Leah Greenblatt

Here’s the scoop: At Davidlebovitz.com, Paris-based food writer Lebovitz—a former pastry chef at San Francisco’s Chez Panisse—regularly dishes up delightfully imaginative recipes for homemade ice cream. (Most recent concoction: Absinthe with chocolate truffles.) Just try not to drool. — Kate Stroup

Summer always brings back memories of piling into the family car and heading out to the local drive-in for a double feature. It’s a viewing experience that’s getting harder to find each year, but the state-by-state locator at Driveinmovie.com helps steer me in the right direction. — Dan Morrissey

As the summer heats up, I want my coffee to cool down. But I hate making decisions! Ugh. Thanks, Is It Iced Coffee Weather?, for your cheeky a YES or NO, depending on the temperature in your zip code. — Margaret Lyons

Surf’s up! Or is it? If you’re looking for local or international wave reports, then paddle over to Surfline for shore updates (everywhere from Ventura, Calif to Northern Chile). Most radical of all? Some breaks even include a live web cam.Dalton RossOkay, PopWatchers, what are your sites of summer?
