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.  
10010 N. Capital of TX Hwy., 512/467-6969
