IF YOU GOT
Mostly as: You are looking for a fun party, but nothing outrageous. Your best bet is to check out Radgeast Hall and Biergarten. Enjoy a pig roast and live music from noon until night.
Mostly bs: You most likely already have your lederhosen laid out and ready to go and the Die Koelner Bierhall is the place to party. Choose between Friday or Saturday night to help them close out their annual week-long Oktoberfest celebrations.
Mostly cs: You are excited to spend a day eating and drinking like a German, but you do not need costumes, dancing, or contests to enjoy yourself. Check out Frankies Spuntino’s for a laid back Sunday fun-day.
