This Week in Fun - September 25 - October 1

We just want to say that we apologize in advance. Why? Because for this last week in September, there are so many great things to do, it made it hard to pick and choose what to include on the list. So we didn’t choose. Instead, we included all the best things there will be to do this week, and we’ve decided we’ll leave the choice up to you. Good luck!

To get you started, though, of course we’ll share a few of picks. A Geek-Chic Fashion Show, A New Orleans Festival, an Undead Dance Party and a Drunken Science Night. Those are the places we’ll certainly be. Now what about you?
