From high-culture to low, and several stops in between, we've got you covered for amusements and diversions this weekend.

Our selections this week reflect several "Last of the Summer" offerings, making us a little sad... but at least we have cooler temperatures to be thankful for!
New York Fashion Week officially starts today, but if you're the broke girl we know you are (say it loud, say it proud), your front row to the runway involves some combination of Instagram, YouTube and obsessive scouring of street style blogs.
