With fall nearly upon us, we’re all itching for something fun to do to this weekend before the weather takes a turn for the rain. If you’re searching for a place to enjoy a beer and a concert with friends and family, we’ve found the perfect spot to celebrate the end of summer at the annual Fremont Oktoberfest. Tomorrow kicks off the weekend full of festivities, with German inspired Beer Gardens near 35th and Phinney Ave, with over 80 micro-brews and German lagers on tap! There is no charge for admission to the festival itself, but if you wish to partake in the beer gardens, admission is between $20-30, and includes a beer mug and tasting tokens. Beers start flowing at 5:00 pm and close at 11:15 tomorrow, and guests can enjoy their beer in small or Buxom Size!
Oktoberfest isn’t just about the beer; there is a list of events planned for the whole family to enjoy, including a 5k on Saturday morning, and a street scramble on Sunday where groups will be given 30 locations throughout the Fremont area to find hit, and the group that’s makes it to the most points of interest in 90 minutes wins. Feel guilty leaving your pup at home? Bring him to Sunday’s Dogtoberfest, where he can join you in the beer garden, sip filtered water in 92.5’s doggie ultra lounge, and run alongside you in a 5k. There is also live music throughout Saturday and Sunday, and a pumpkin chainsaw carving contest, so come on down and enjoy Oktoberfest the Fremont way!
The lovely Cafe Lieto aka Biscuit Bitch, is going to be featured on a new foodie special on the Travel Channel dubbed Feed the Beast, hosted by Mikey Roe. On the show Roe will embark on a quest in search of the best local late night eats around to 6 featured cities around the country.
In each city he will hit 3 or 4 spots along the way, speak to the owners, patrons, and of course sample the famed late night eats. Now is your time to shine, if you’ve been looking for an opportunity to gain a nationwide televised screenshot of the back of your head! There will be two tapings, beginning this Saturday Sept 15th from 12-2am, followed by Sun Sept 16th from 7-11pm. If you want to attend the taping, go ahead and RSVP on their facebook events page; go get your biscuit on!
