Calling all dogs! Round up your human this Saturday, October 4th for the annual canine fest, Woofstock, at Sedgwick County Park to benefit the Kansas Humane Society. Last year $220,000 was raised for homeless animals, and 10,000 two-leggers came out to play. Speaking of playing, sharpen your smeller at the K9 Nose Work event, new this year. Sniff for more info.


70,000 artifacts in 75 years

That's what the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum is celebrating this year, complete with an anniversary party and a special exhibit of seldom-seen artifacts.

This month Splurge! also spoke with another Wichitan who savors well-aged vintages: Dr. Theo Mellion, neurosurgeon and importer of fine French wines. You might have sipped some of his wares at prominent local restaurants. Or, if you're in a more laid-back mood, check out Dining South. Joe Stumpe went prowling for hidden gems and discovered fast, fun and affordable burgers, Mexican, Asian, diners and bars.

Coming up this fall is Shocker volleyball and we get the scoop directly from coach Chris Lamb who explains just why the team stands at 14th in the nation for attendance and he aims to spike that even higher this season.

Whether you're venturing into the past, future or just out on the town to savor the cooling autumn breezes, the fashion in Color Me Beautiful will inspire you with all the hues of the season.
