ARLnow Weekend Discussion

The countdown to the end of summer is well underway.

Sure, technically fall doesn’t start until Sept. 22, but Labor Day weekend is only three weeks away and the signs heralding fall’s imminent arrival are already here.

Oktoberfest and pumpkin beers are hitting the shelves, and pumpkin spice lattes at Dunkin Donuts are only five days away (you’ll reportedly have to wait until Aug. 25 for the Starbucks version).

Bottom line: enjoy summer while you still can!
