It's the end of summer! At least, that's what we've arbitrarily decided for the upcoming long weekend here in America. As a result, there are all sorts of insane happenings going on here. But first...

Happy La Tomatina! It's today. Go throw a tomato at someone!

It's also Eid al-Fitr (some say it began yesterday, some say it begins today).

Burning Man and DragonCon are getting underway on opposite ends of the country here, soon to be joined by the Buffalo Wing Festival (occurring, surprisingly, in Buffalo) and a zillion fireworks festivals, including our own local shebang! Apparently we are now calling it Boomsday. Or something. The history page is pretty fun, detailing all the times things have gone wrong over the years.
