Y&H gets a lot of press releases with over-the-top claims and flowery prose. Congrats, publicists, you’ve gotten our attention (just maybe not the way you wanted). That’s why we’re instating a new feature: Cheesy Press Release of the Week. This week the award goes to an announcement for the July 14 arrival of Del Frisco’s Grille in Penn Quarter:

Experts predict Washington’s heat index will break records this summer.  This may be due in large part to the debut of Del Frisco’s Grille, a new restaurant and bar, set to debut downtown at 1201 Pennsylvania Avenue NW on Saturday, July 14.

That’s right, folks, Del Frisco’s is responsible for global warming.
