10 Things We’ll Miss Most About Summer
Though summer doesn’t officially end until September 21st, we all know the summer fun comes to a close following Labor Day Weekend. So, as we filter back into work and school, hungover, despondent, and craving a DVR to re-live the best moments from the past three months, we thought we’d get nostalgic and rub salt in the wound by rolling out the top things we’ll miss most about the hottest season of the year.
1. Big Budget Blockbusters
For some reason, even with all the CGI and fanboy pandemonium today’s blockbusters STILL don’t outsell those of yesteryear. Finding out “The Dark Knight Rises” hasn’t outpaced Tim Burton’s “Batman” (1989) in number of tickets sold is jarring. You can blame the internet for piracy or spoiling the moviegoing experience (or in TDKR’s case, a tragic shooting). But, for us, we enjoy a packed air conditioned theater to take in a hyped, buzzworthy release during a hot summer night… preferably with a date.
2. BBQs & Cookouts
The intoxicating aroma of burgers and dogs roasting on the grill can turn around anyone’s week. Light some tiki torches, maybe even crank the fire-pit for s’more-making, and don’t skimp on the adult beverages. It’s like bringing a little bit of island life to your backyard. Coconut bras are mandatory.
3. Fireworks Fails
Right around Fourth of July, we always see a new wave of fireworks fails flood our browsers. But, this year, we got a fail of epic proportions when the crew in San Diego went ALL IN on their display.

4. Outdoor Concerts / Music Festivals
Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Coachella. It seems every other week, there’s a massive gathering of bands and their fans for non-stop partying. While we curse the ‘net for spoiling movies and TV shows, it also allows us to watch concerts via live-streaming. Thanks, Internet. We still love-hate you.
5. Summer Camp
Okay, so you’re probably years away from your days of attending summer camp or even your summer job as a camp counselor, but reliving your glory days with Summer Camp movie marathons in the park or on the rooftop is just as sweet. You’re never too old to go on a panty raid.
6. Wedding Fails
Summer is the wedding season. We’ve all been invited to weddings that take place during summer holiday weekends and we wished serious bouts of food and/or sea sickness on the happy couple. But seeing the bride and groom’s special day turn into a blooper reel is well worth the tux rental.
7. Beach Bodies
We know women like to pretend looks don’t matter, however, they can’t deny their innermost desire to gawk at eye candy. For us sacks of flab, seeing a shredded dude or bodacious beauty can be motivation to hit the gym.
Outside of Spring Break and warm weather climates, these seasonal competitions are what make summer the sexiest block on the calendar. We can’t even imagine what these will look like in another 10 years.
8. The XXX Olympics
The Bouncy Aussie Michelle Jenneke. Insanely Fast (and Cocky) Usain Bolt. Crip Walking Serena Williams. Hope Solo and Alex Morgan. Lolo Jones’ virginity. Ryan “Yeah, He Pees in the Pool” Lochte. McKayla Maroney’s Not Impressed Face. Don’t get us wrong. They didn’t die or anything. But with the next Summer Olympics four years away, we’re guessing their antics will fly under the radar until then.
9. Summer Flings
What is it about the summer that makes people fall in lust? Probably the lack of clothes, the tanned skin, the sweating and general happiness that comes with more daylight and shorter work days and weeks (Summer Fridays! CRAP!). My guess is the flings usually happen at your summer rentals – places that are temporary and fleeting. A different locale, a different mindset. Summer is fantasy, Fall is back to reality. No one understands this better than Katy Perry. She’s reportedly had flings with John Mayer and R-Pattz. Bless her well-endowed soul.
10. “Call Me Maybe” Covers & Parodies (aka Songs of the Summer)
It used to be that when a ‘Song of the Summer’ came along, it would last the entire summer. Then, much like internet trends, it would get overplayed and would lose its novelty quickly. Despite a lot of people thinking “Call Me Maybe” would hit a wall after a couple weeks, it’s somehow still going strong. Eventually, it’s gotta perish, right? We’re hoping with this blog post, it signals the end.
