50 Things We Love About October (Besides Pumpkin Spice Lattes)

By  | 0 Comments

A profusion of pumpkin spice makes its way to coffee shops countrywide this month, but there are dozens of other things that we love about October. The days get shorter, the weather gets cooler and the beer gets tastier. Here’s 50 things that make October rock (besides every basic bitch’s favorite Starbucks order).

1. Oktoberfest.
