Summer is the season for amusement parks (and screaming your head off while flipping upside down), baseball games (duh-nuh-nuh-na-nuh-na, "Charge!") and outdoor concerts (man, your voice never sounded so good!). But there are quieter parts of the season, too. Like, say, sitting on your back porch watching the sun go down. Or standing on the shore of a lake fly-fishing and watching the sun come up. But before you set out early one warm morn, you need to get things ready, and one of the free Fly-Tying Nights at Lone Wolf Coffee Company (15480 Clayton Road, Ballwin; 636-527-7027 or www.lonewolfcoffeecompany.com) ought to help you out. From 6 to 10 p.m. on several Tuesdays (June 30, July 14 and August 11), hang out at the coffee shop, meet new people, and tie some flies with them. And don't worry if you don't know how or don't have supplies — they'll hook you up (ha!) when you get there.
