11:14 a.m. In an effort to help those without AC in their homes escape the sweltering heat, Lunch Break is staying open an extra three hours past its usual lunch hour Wednesday. Games and television will be provided until 4 p.m. so those who need to can stay cool, said executive assistant Millie Jeter.

“These people are like family to us,” said Jeter. “We want them to be comfortable – and hydrated.”  (Photo by Danielle Tepper. Click to enlarge)
