Drink up: It’s Iced Tea Day. The best way to celebrate is with a frosty glass of iced tea. Lucky for you, there are so many varieties available, including peach, mango, lemon — or just an old-fashioned sweet tea.
The Summer Movie Season is back in a big way with the musical “In the Heights,” opening in theaters today. “Hamilton” creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda first burst onto the scene with this story, set in the gentrifying Manhattan neighborhood of Washington Heights. The high-energy musical features Miranda’s signature sound: a blend of hip-hop and Latin music with big, bold, brassy Broadway ballads. Rated PG-13. Running time: 2 hours and 23 minutes. For a review, see Page C6.
