Sometimes, while writing this column, I stop and start texting babysitters. This weekend is one of those weekends. Get weird at the Fair, buy some beautiful things, see some innovative dancing, and ABBA ABBA ABBA.

FALL!! Now that “Ugh, summer’s ending,” thoughts have slumped their way out the door, “Hooray, there’s so much to do in the fall!” thoughts are moonwalking right in! This week: international food, nail-biting tension, running, farming, and beer, always with the beer!

Wishing you had a cathartic outlet for the beasts inside of you? Turns out, this is the best possible thing for you. Not kidding.

This weekend is as eclectic as it is upcoming. Take advantage of outdoor theatres, outdoor jam bands, outdoor boats, outdoor jazz, and outdoor sweaty guys. Plenty of time to stay indoors when Polar Vortex 2 hits later. Remember I said that.
