And the Evil Clowns Will See You Now

You Didn't Forget About Oktoberfest, Did You?
DAS FESTIVE

You Didn't Forget About Oktoberfest, Did You?

For 10 glorious days, oh yes, there will be beer. We speak, of course, of Oktoberfest at Fritz & Franz in Coral Gables. There will be yodeling and brat-eating contests. There will be live music and Bavarian food buffets. There will be regrets. But, you know, good regrets.

Friday
The Evil Clowns Will See You Now
SCARE PACKAGE

The Evil Clowns Will See You Now

The 1455 Asylum. The Gates of Phobias with 3D elements. A rock and roll circus sideshow, a collection of oddities, horrifying clowns and a full bar. Happy October. Here's your House of Horror.

Saturday
Grab a Date. Have An Enchanted Evening. Repeat.
HEY, FAM

Grab a Date. Have An Enchanted Evening. Repeat.

Fashion, Art and Music (FAM Night) in Coconut Grove lives up to its name, what with all the musicians playing on tree-lined streets, places like the William McCall Gallery displaying art and shops like Flying Lizard offering 15% off. Plus a date-night bonus of dinner and live jazz after at Peacock Garden.

Sunday
You Probably Don't Normally Watch Football Like This
GOOD WILL PUNTING

You Probably Don't Normally Watch Football Like This

Jezebel's Sunday night football bash is just like watching the game in your own living room. That is, if you had seven massive TVs, multiple leather couches, a well-appointed bar and plates of wings, lobster tacos, truffle fries and fried Oreos. In which case, yep, just like home.

STANDARD FARE

Lazy Sunday at the Standard Gets Instrumental

The only way to improve the Standard's Lazy Sunday atmosphere of food fresh off the grill, cold drinks and frolicking madly about the pool is by adding a performance from Barcelona's Las Migas and the New World Symphony fellows while you dance on the dock overlooking the bay. That's the only way though.

What Else Is New

On a typical Wednesday, Ginger Harris is likely seeking reposado tequila, squeezing her way to the front of a concert or jumping on the back of an Indian motorcycle. That’s just Wednesdays, though.
