Summer is almost coming to an end. I know that it still officially has a few more weeks to go, but much like Memorial Day kicks off the summer, Labor Day is the bookend that grants it a found farewell. The past week has really left a mark on the 2011 version of flip-flop wearing weather. A very uncommon earthquake up the east coast, followed by a hurricane that pretty left people as far north as New York, if not further, without electricity for a spell, the young men from California beating Japan to win the Little League World Series, and of course the awkwardness that was Lady Gaga at the Video Music Awards – and this was only the past week or two.
If the travel bug has bitten you through the last few months, but the over-the-top heat had you stymied as to where to get some relief, remember that in a few months you'll be longing for the clammy-ness that the heat brought when you're de-icing your vehicle to get to work. Go out and enjoy one last shot of fun in the sun - trust me, when you're suffering from cabin fever, you'll be glad you did.
Go out and enjoy a concert before the stages (of amphitheatres) are all closed for the season. The concerts series are going pretty strong as we here at Bizzability have been on top of some of the best acts. Dave Matthews to Journey to Darius Rucker, let it be your summer of 2011 sound track.
Packing your car and hitting a local hotel that overlooks a beach, golf course, or the mountains. Regardless of where you live, there are places, I'm sure, that you don't get to go that often. I take for granted that I live only 7 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and have only gone to the beach 5 times in the past two years. Shame on me.

Darius Rucker, former frontman of Hootie and The Blowfish, is returning home to the states after a brief tour through Europe.
He kicks off in NY, NY at the Best Buy Theater on Thursday, September 1st, followed by a performance in Lancaster, PA on Friday, September 2nd at the American Music Theatre. Then it's on to Long Island at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Saturday, September 3rd.
Tap your cowboy boots along to the chart topping country songs from both of his albums including “History In The Making,” “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” “Alright,” “Come Back Song,” and “This.”
Rolling Stone raved about Rucker, saying “On his Nashville debut, Rucker's rich baritone, sentimental ballads and bright hooks made him the most successful African-American country singer since Charley Pride. Rucker amps up that formula on album number two."
Rucker originally gained his fame as lead singer and guitarist of American rock band Hootie & the Blowfish, which he founded in the mid 80s while attending the University of South Carolina.
