Well. Sigh. This weekend we decided to embrace the changing season: we headed up to the snowy trails around the Matterhorn, we unpacked our winter pajamas, and we even ate a fondue. So much for that Indian Summer September that we’ve come to expect each year.

Fortunately, the city is still buzzing with late summer energy, so there’s plenty to do if you want to keep that 3-day weekend vibe alive a bit longer.
