If autumn had a homepage, it would be the Fall Guide

Find details on autumnal events like the National Book Festival in our just-launched Fall Guide. (Megan Buerger/The Washington Post)

Depressing stuff, for sure, but the Going Out Guide’s just-launched Fall Guide offers plenty of reasons to perk up:

The return of the NFL; terrific golf weather; day trips to Virginia wine country; distillery tours; the Maryland Seafood Festival; numerous county fairs; the National Book Festival; the first-place Washington Nationals; rooftop bars you can spend an evening on without sweating through your shirt; Bruce Springsteen.

And that’s just September. Fall offers pleasures unattainable during the summer swelter, and we’re here to catalogue them; if autumn in the D.C. area had homepage, this would be it. Bookmark it and check back often as we keep track of the season’s best bets.

Alex Baldinger is editor of the Going Out Guide blog, which covers food, drink, arts, music, events and other curiosities in the D.C. area. He is forever in search of a great sandwich.
