The Month Ahead

Your Guide to October

October, so fun it has its own fest.

International Sake Day
OCT 1

International Sake Day

Ah, sweet rice wine—it’s gotten you through some rough times. That awkward sushi date with Devon Aoki. That mix-up with the ad execs from Honda. That 12-hour Godzilla marathon. So sit back, pour yourself a glass and enjoy—Oktoberfesting will wait.

Susan Sarandon, Sixty-Freaking-Four
OCT 4

Susan Sarandon, Sixty-Freaking-Four

You believe in the small of a woman’s back, the hanging curve, high fiber, good scotch... and the fact that Susan Sarandon still looks better than most women half her age. Apparently, political activism and cougaring does wonders for the body.

Bidding on Kate Moss
OCT 6-7

Bidding on Kate Moss

We know you swore off auctions after you scratched your ear and ended up owning one of Monet’s lesser works. But it might be time to dust off the old paddle—several Irving Penn originals (including ones of Kate Moss and Amber Valletta in their finest attire, by which we mean nothing) are going on the block. Art. Always a smart investment.

Watching Movies on a Hawaiian Beach
OCT 14-24

Watching Movies on a Hawaiian Beach

Sure, Sundance is a swell time (skiing with Redford: priceless), but sometimes you want something... sandier. Your answer: the Hawaii International Film Festival. The lineup is mostly imports from Asia, but you’re here for the screening room, which isn’t so much a room as a beach. Try not to get sand in your popcorn.

Oktoberfest, Oklahoma-Style
OCT 21-24

Oktoberfest, Oklahoma-Style

Little-known fact: Oktoberfest actually originated in Tulsa. Okay, we made that up, but here you’ll drink your Bavarian lager in a potbelly stein, dominate the annual Bier Barrel Race and take in the tunes of the Polka Meisters. You do not want to face those guys in the Bier Barrel Race.
