Welcome to Part One of Creative Loafing's three-part Summer Guide. Yes, you read that right. Since it's a daunting task to capture the splendor of this glorious season and all its offerings in one single issue, we've elected to spread the goodness out over three consecutive weeks. This issue, we're focusing our energies on Film and Arts; next week, we set our gaze on Music and Fashion; and for the June 1 issue, we wrap it all up with Food. So soak up our ample coverage; just make sure to use plenty of sunscreen.
