According to NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the budgetary dispute that has delayed the opening of the National September 11th Memorial Museum has been resolved. The Museum was scheduled to open today, but a new date will be set once construction resumes.

Every Friday and Saturday in September, Glendale's Old Heidelberg Parkat the Bavarian Soccer Club, celebrates Oktoberfest with German food, suds and music. 

Marquette University is the latest among a growing number of college campuses to add quidditch to their club sport offerings. More than 500 universities and high schools in the US have quidditch teams plus a couple hundred more in foreign countries. Teams travel to national and world cup tournaments.

Cedarburg's historic Cedar Creek Settlement hosts their 40th Annual Wine & Harvest Festival this weekend.  The weekend festivities include live music, a Scarecrow sculpture graden and the Great Grape Stomp.
