[5 things we're thinking about]

Thinking about Cosmo’s Dive-In movies, where to find legit shrimp empanadas and more

The Boulevard Pool is not only good for swimming and concerts, but movies, too.

Heads up When I’m feeling low, I get headline therapy from the online Daily Mail. The latest: “Nice car, shame about the bald patch: Matthew Perry reveals thinning hair while spinning around in his $150k Audi convertible.” —Erin Ryan, managing editor

Gone shrimpin’ After trying the well-kept secret that is Downtown’s Mariscos Playa Escondida, I couldn’t stop dreaming about the crunchy shrimp empanadas and rich seafood molcajete. As legit as it gets. —Leslie Ventura, calendar editor

Here comes the sun I’ll take the triple-digit weather after our inconsistent spring. I didn’t enjoy wearing three layers to a pool concert in April—or canceling water-park trips because of will-it-or-won’t-it clouds. —Mike Prevatt, nightlife editor

Screen gem Elvis Presley and Ann–Margret are kicking it up in Viva Las Vegas playing on the Cosmopolitan marquee as we picnic on José Andrés’ paella del día. Cosmo’s fifth season of poolside Dive-In movies is underway. —Kristen Peterson, staff writer
