Because summer isn’t the only season with festivals
Festivals in the summer get all the love, with their teeth-rattling, bass-heavy music lineups and clumps of sweaty bodies too close together. Weekend fall festivals, however, celebrate harvest season (and zombies-jumping-out-of-hay-bales-and-scaring-you season) and are severely underrated in comparison. You’ve got chowder cook-offs and chili competitions, where burly dudes stir giant pots of delicately crafted meat and seafood soups. There’s craft beer festivals, with every type of seasonal brew you can drink, (and all the apple cider you can handle) -- and you won’t sweat through your flannel. To find out what’s going on near you, you can check out the website for your local park, check Facebook events in your area, or, you know, head over to one of the city sections of this lovely website. An added bonus of these fests: you’ll also still have the ability to hear the Monday morning meeting, which we guess is a good thing.
Fall Sundays are the best days to go on a date
It’s cold. We get it. There are going to be some Sundays where all you want to do is hibernate -- preferably not alone (which is why fall is cuffing season). Maybe after spending a full weekend on the go, come Sunday all you want to do is cuddle up with someone and watch The Walking Dead. Everyone is on the prowl for someone to shack up with through the brutal winter days ahead, and the best day to go on a date for a potential candidate is on Sunday. 1.You have the perfect excuse to head out early if it isn’t going well and 2.You get to see your date in a beautiful, autumnal glow (AKA broad daylight). Also, being able to actually talk over coffee (which is a pretty successful first date) will more likely result in a long-term thing than screaming to each other over drinks in a loud bar.
