Did y’all feel that breeze this morning? It hit us right in our sunny and 75 sweet spot and we started dreaming of pumpkin beers. Speaking of beers, we’ve got a big beer fest for ya tomorrow with over 100 featured brews, because you can never have too many. They just make us so … hoppy. With a price tag of free there’s no reason not to check out lectures, movies, and one very interesting symposium on Tribesmen in Vietnam. —Connelly Hardaway
