Fall is the best time to go see a movie
Spending a rainy Sunday at the movies is a classic #SundayFunday activity any time of year, but the fall is the best time to go, hands down. The films are just better. In the summer, you’re stuck with blockbusters like the seventh version of Spiderman. (Not to mention you’re spending the whole time wishing you could be watching this movie outside.) But come October, when silver-screen contenders are pandering for an Oscar-nomination, you’ll not only be entertained, but cultured too. Plus, seeing a movie on a Sunday afternoon means cheap matinee tickets, so you can splurge on the XXL popcorn. (Or really just the medium size, amirite?)
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.
