+7 A slew of festivals dominate the weekend, including OystoberFest, Hogtober and Oktoberfest. Which is why we spent Sunday celebrating Naptoberfest.

+2 The weekend also plays host to the Conclave of Richmond Pipe Smokers' 28th annual Pipe and Cigar Smokers' Exposition. Highlights included the crowning of Mr. Craggy Face 2012, the Rockin' Chair Whittling Championships, and Smokin' Hot Singles: Pickup Lines That Work After Your Tracheotomy.

-4 A website hooking up sugar daddies with young women ranks Richmond as the ninth most promiscuous city for men, with a poll showing that 55 percent have had seven or more partners in the last year. The Conclave of Richmond Pipe Smokers strikes again.

-3 On the heels of selling off the Times-Dispatch and most of its newspapers, Richmond-based Media General sells its last paper — The Tampa Tribune — leaving it with only digital and broadcast companies. At least the company won't have a way to print its stock price anymore.

-2 Starbucks runs low on Pumpkin Spice, as discovered by 103.7 The River's Melissa Chase, who finds a store apology sign that reads: "Experiencing shortages throughout the region." It's the worst news she's received since learning the Kardashian sisters decided against filming a spoof of "Gangnam Style."
