Attention architecture, history, design, aviation, and photography buffs! The TWA Flight Center at New York's JFK Airport will again be open to the public for one day: Saturday, October 11, from 11am to 3:30pm.
The reason? The 12th annual openhousenewyork festival (OHNY), a weekend event that flings open private doors to showcase typically hidden gems of the city over weekend of October 11-12.
Although OHNY began in 2002, the TWA Center has only been welcoming the OHNY public since 2011, and each year is typically considered the last chance to see it in this raw, restored state before developers re-purpose it. Recent plans, now shelved, involved turning it into a hotel, to be added to the property portfolio of hotelier Andre Balazs. His loss is our gain, and access will again be free on October 11.

If Zombiegeddon were upon us, would you rather be among the hordes of zombies, the living insane, or those running for their lives? The Redrun II Ė A Zombie Sequel lets you decide exactly where you think you'd belong.
The second annual horror run will take place in Virginia City, Nevada, thought to be one of the most haunted cities in America.
During the event, zombies will chase runners through Virginia City's train tunnels, haunted buildings, the Comstock Gold Mill, train graveyard and more. The total course covers six miles including six dead zones and six obstacles where runners will have to work together to survive.
Runners can regroup along the way at Revive Stations where there will be plenty of beer, water and, most importantly, safety.

Itís the season to raise a glass, mug, or stein in celebration of Oktoberfest. With only days until events kick off, a last-minute trip to Munich may not be in the cards this year. Thatís okay, as there are plenty of towns, communities, and cities doing the Oktoberfest thing on this side of the ocean. Here are some of our favorites:

Hugh Hefner is getting ready to welcome the world's sexiest ghosts and ghouls to the annual Playboy Halloween Party.
The Official Playboy Halloween Party at the Playboy Mansion, taking place on Oct. 25, is known for its haunted houses, spooky performers, musical guests, good eats and, of course, open bars.
As usual, the event is put on by Karma and though the most affordable (as in four-figure) tickets are sold out, there's still a few "VIP" packages in the low five-figures, if you're keen to see with the inside of the infamous mansion looks like. Spoiler alert: VICE found it depressing.
The calendar still shows summer, but the weather is hinting toward fall. The foliage and apple cider hasn't fully arrived yet in New England, but there are some hints that these things are on the horizon. In the interim here's some falls, festivals, and events in each state yet this September:

Oktoberfest in Munich begins September 20 and ends October 5. Looking at the calendar, that's a scant 10 days until the tapping of the first keg! Despite what you may be thinking, it's still not too late to make the decision to finally "do" Oktoberfest this year.
During the festival, the city's Theresienwiese event grounds (or simply "Wiesn" for short) will be teeming with tens of thousands of revelers daily, traveling from beer tent to champagne tent, to schnapps booth. Champagne tent?! Schnapps booth?! Yes, there are special zones and kiosks for all traditional German alcohols, but beer is the chief interest and, as such, the big-name beer tents fill up early in the day.

Labor Day means more than just the official end of summer and unofficial end of wearing white pants. With the start of September comes the countdown to what fashion insiders dub "Fashion Month," the series of fashion weeks which will introduce the trends and top designs for 2015.
As fashion weeks move to world capitals and new runways, they take with them the top editors, stylists, models, and fashion photographers to create a burst of creative energy and something of a "scene" in these cities. As such, fashion week can be the cooled time to visit these cities, so long as you're prepared to pay a premium for the best hotels and restaurants in which to be seen.
Mark them down, here are the dates to know for upcoming Fashion Weeks around the world:
