It’s September. Have Your Best September. September is better than August.
It’s September. Drink better beer. BYT resident beer expert Phil Runco picks his favorite beer events this month, which we’ve already made clear is better than August.
NYC editor Megan Burns went to a US Open match. The woman next to her brought a bag of Indian food to eat during the US Ope. That is a baller move.

The New York Times recent Cher interview is a good look at the legend we barely know.
Your long read for the weekend should be “Judging by the Cover: How the Magazine Industry’s Identity Crisis Is Playing Out on Its Front Page” on The Ringer.
