Happy Friday!

How about this weather? Last weekend, we got a taste of fall, but this weekend the forecast is low 80s and sunny. I'd say it's the perfect chance to enjoy these outdoor activities in the parks while you can.

As an ode to fall, I just published this guide to spiced hot drinks in Ann Arbor. See if your favorite coffee spot is on the list and what they're serving up this season.

That's all for now!

Feature interview of the week:

"My philosophy has always been: My site is always going to be free for the users. I list events for free as well. If I charge and you can only get on my site if you pay, I will lose my relevance."
