Samuel Adams Octoberfest in Miami This Saturday
The Octoberfest celebration starts at 2 p.m. and runs till midnight. It's the best excuse to drink in a public park since you were in high school.
No seriously, the event is family-oriented (leave it to Germany to bring the family together over beer). There will be a German stein-hoisting competition to test our your brats and a costume contest for best German costume -- finally a reason to wear lederhosen! Dueling pianos will perform throughout the day as well. And word on the street is there will be at least one bottle of Sam Adams Utopia -- a rare, 24 percent alcohol brew bottled in a mini beer cask -- will be on hand.
Can't make it Saturday? Friday night is Art in the Park starting at 7 p.m. and will feature live music and an art showcase until 11.
The event is sponsored by the Kiwanis of Little Havana.
