The best way to deal with those days when you might get sun poisoning just by looking at the reflection off the sidewalk is to leave the city altogether. But when the shore is too far and the suburbs are too boring, spend the day eating and drinking at Manayunk Brewing Co. It has a huge outdoor patio that’s right next to the river, and it’s so peaceful you might even start to understand why anyone decides to live in Amish country.
