Oktoberfest Comes to Skillman Avenue this Saturday

Oct. 14, 2015 By Christian Murray

It’s time to get out the lederhosen and the Bavarian hats.

The Skillman Project, a group of bars and restaurants located on Skillman Avenue, is hosting its 4th annual Oktoberfest this Saturday.

There are seven bars/restaurants participating in the event—and attendees will be offered $3 pints all day/night.

Several of the bars/restaurants will be serving German-themed food—with items such as Bratwurst and pretzels on offer.

The Skillman Project has also hired a brass band that will be playing polka music at all the participating venues.

“Oktoberfest is typically the most popular event that the Skillman Project puts on each year,” said Justin Costello, the manager at Claret Wine Bar, who is organizing the pub crawl. “It usually brings in the largest crowd.”

The Skillman Project also puts on an annual Mardi Gras and a summer event.

To partake in Saturday’s Oktoberfest, attendees are required to register at any of the participating bars and buy a $5 wristband. The wristband is needed in order to get the $3 beers at all seven restaurants/bars. The $5 proceeds will be donated to the local food pantry.

Participating bars are: Dog and the Duck, Claret Wine Bar, Flynn’s Garden Inn, Quaint Bistro, The Globe, Aubergine Cafe and The Copper Kettle.

I missed it this year! Take note organizers: It would’ve been nice if there were a few posters on the other side of the boulevard or near the subway. You would get better turnout.
