Good morning, Washington! Here's what we're reading around the web this AM.

Holy moly, there’s almost too much going on this weekend! Festivals galore, Oktoberfest beer everywhere you look, a Yacht Rock DJ party, political comedy, and several new museum exhibits are on tap in this weekend’s nightlife guide.

The big political news today is that John McCain has suspended his campaign to go work on the economy—and as a result wants to suspend this Friday's planned debate with Obama. What's going to happen? We're not sure, but if the debate goes on as planned, you can find a bar or party to watch it in our debate-watching guide

The weather has cooled down noticeably today—and apparently it's gonna rain. Like, a lot. Capital Weather Gang predicts storms through the weekend. 

Hopefully, the rain won't affect BikeDC, which returns to town this weekend. It's a 17-mile car-free bike ride along the streets of DC. You can register and get more details here
