It's Back To School Time! Fall Classes To Rev Up Your Brain

It's fall, which means you're back from your summer shenanigans and ready for action....right? Kick your brain back into gear with these fall classes around town.

Making Aged Cheeses @ 18 Reasons: Maybe you've made fresh milk cheeses at home before, but here's some next level knowledge–how to make aged and deliciously stinky cheeses on your very own countertop. Taught by Louella Hill, you'll learn all that and proper aging and storing, the ins and outs of making blue cheese, the nature of molds, and how different strains taste. Yum! Class starts Tuesday, Sept. 13, from 6-8 pm. Get tickets per class, or tickets for a series of classes.

Re-Animate and Reconstruct Your Wardrobe @ Workshop: Everyone knows back-to-school is all about getting new clothes! Well instead of new clothes, try reinvigorating those neglected items crowding your closet! You'll breathe new life into clothes that don't fit or items that are missing that certain something-something. Just bring in 3 to 6 articles of clothing in need of a makeover, and teacher Nicole Stevenson will show you how to work your magic. Sept. 13, 7:30-10:30 pm. Sign up here.

Say Goodbye at "The Last Kodachrome"

Some of us are stuck in the non-digital age. And by some, I mean me. I still have a cell phone that simply makes calls and sends texts and only last year did I convert from a paper calendar to an iTouch. So, you can imagine my dismay when digital photography took the place of film. It was a sad, sad day last year when Kodak discontinued its Kodachrome film, best known for producing the most vibrant photographic colors. Soon, the only business still processing it will stop. And thus ends an era during which photographers had an entirely different understanding and appreciation of their art form.

Gift Your Friends With Trapeze Classes & More @ Curiosity Atlas' "Experience" Gift Market

Giving people socks or electronics for Christmas has gotten so lame, right? Things like that hold all the fascination of a rock after a while, and that's why we're excited for Curiosity Atlas's first-ever "experience" gift market.

Back to School: Fall Arts, Crafts and Cooking Classes and Lectures

It's back to school time, so take your brain off summer vacation. Here are some opportunities to get your noggin firing some extra neurons this fall:

Jonathan Franzen @ City Arts & Lectures: Perhaps THE great American novelist of his generation (The New York Times Book Review called his latest novel, Freedom, "a masterpiece of American fiction"), Franzen (who previously authored The Corrections) is a deeply cerebral writer who crafts multi-layered plots of dramatic social commentary. At Herbst Theatre, he'll be talking to Mark Breitenberg about his writing life and new works. September 13th, 8 pm. Other City Arts & Lectures events to get on your calendar include Jonathan Safran Foer, Maya Rudolph, Mark Morris and Judd Apatow. (check out the full schedule here).
