Eating and drinking with friends makes for a much better Friday night than eating your friends and drinking alone. Gather a crowd with this Groupon.
$20 for Craft- and Imported-Beer Festival for One on May 17 ($40 Value)
This Groupon grants general admission, which includes entry from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena. The first 4,500 guests also receive a 5-ounce beer-sampling glass.
At Jaxtoberfest, it's easy to eat bratwurst and drink beer casually—or competitively. The German-themed festival's brat-eating contest tests participants' stomach capacity, whereas the 5K Beer Run challengs runners to down brews at "chug stations" lining the race course. Revelers can also test their wits in games of oversize beer pong, beer barrel racing, and stein hoisting. Classic Bavarian music complements the games and food, providing an ideal backdrop for chicken dancing and polka. The family-friendly event also hosts fall-themed activities for kids, such as pumpkin bowling and pumpkin painting.
