The temps are forecasted to get outrageous today, so in honor of all the blue skies and hot weather, the Hot Dish celebrates the three main tenets of good, old-fashioned summertime fun: beer, wings and trucks (well, at least according to us). Here's some of the fine stories from the week that take on those compelling subjects.

Happy weekend-ing! We plan to be playing croquet, drinking fancy cocktails and contemplating building a Tofu Stonehenge. How about you?
