    North by Northwest: Oktoberfest

    You know what'd be good right about now, fellow workaday toiler? A weekend full of beer, brats, and bands. That's craft beer and bratwursts and live bands, of course. And, lucky us, it's all happening at this festival of Germanically inflected cuisine and frivolity, during which there's also a stein hoisting contest, a brat eating contest, and – pardon us while we squeeeee – a canine costume contest! With a separate wiener-dog category! October, you're getting better every minute.
    Oct. 20-21. Sat., noon-9pm; Sun., 11am-7pm. $2 and up.

Never mind that lost shaker of salt, amigo, just be prepared to sip the night away in sweet liquid style.

    Guy FieriCon Austin

    FieriCon is, quote, "a collection of Guy Fieri (and Girl Fieri) enthusiasts who embrace all things Flavortown and, yes, if you so dare, to even dress up as the Mayor of said town himself!" Oooooookay. Note: This will be the third FieriCon in the USA. Some fellow named Dave Gold started the thing – a sort of garrulous bar crawl on steroids – in NYC, then took it to Milwaukee, and now, well, we reckon that now all of Austin can help make sure St. Anthony's ghost is spinning in his fucking grave, n'est-ce pas?
    Sat., Oct. 20. Free.
