Sure an' this place is up in Round Rock (roll those arrrs, citizen!), but damned if the popular Irish pub isn't compelling enough for a drive under normal circumstances. And Oktoberfest, we'll insist, is at least a skoshie beyond normal – especially at Cork & Barrel, with the Irish gone briefly Germanic, with a steinholding competition and Bavarian costume contest(there's one for your pets, too), and even a root-beer tasting and lebkuchen-decorating station for the kiddos. Also, jah, live music on Saturday – and pretzels and schnitzel and kartoffelsalat and homemade apple strudel more on the menu all weekend long.
No events scheduled.
Past dates: Oct. 1-2. Sat., 2-10pm; Sun., 2-9pm
