I’m not much for crowds, but this really sounds fun. Two nights of music, drinks and delicious food at one of the most appropriate venues in town for an Oktoberfest celebration. The food at Grünauer is seriously good and the Oktoberfest menu sounds like a winner. From the website:

Chef Peter Grunauer will prepare Sauerbraten with Rye, Bratwurst, Cheddarwurst, Austrian Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Hungarian Gulasch with Spaetzle, a Salad Sampler of Kraut, Potato, Cucumber, & Tomatoes, and Grunauer house made Pretzels.

Few things appeal to me more than the prospect of house-made pretzels and I know from experience that the Cheddarwursts are first rate.

Naturally, there will be polka music, traditional German dancers and frenetic, Eastern-European inflected rock from Nuthatch 47.

The action begins under the tent this Friday, Oct. 8 at 4 p.m. and continues on Friday from noon to 1 a.m. I’ll meet you in the beer garden, I’ll be the drunk one.
