Like beer and monkeys, fun often comes in barrels and rarely makes an appearance at second-grade productions of Any Which Way But Loose. Explore barrels’ bounty with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $6, you get three general-admission passes to the second annual NorCal OktoberFest at Vintage Gardens on Saturday, October 1 from 6 p.m. to midnight (an $18 value). Today’s deal does not include food or drink, and you must be 21 or older to attend the event.
The authentic NorCal OktoberFest celebrates German culture with spirited yodels, sprightly polkas, and bottomless steins of beer. Guests can savor the smoky scent of sausage, without letting pet dachshunds nap in a humidor, by moseying into the fest with general-admission passes. Deutschlander delicacies, such as schnitzel, sauerkraut, and potato salad, greet hungry bellies, and barrels of Dust Bowl Brewery’s special-edition suds quench attendees’ thirst. Revelers can flaunt their most stylish lederhosen as they boogie to live oom-pah tunes from Big Lou’s Polka Casserole or yodel techno jams as the Golden Gate Bavarian Club imparts the hottest dance moves from 19th-century Munich.
With year-round foliage and a patio reminiscent of a European coffee shop, Vintage Gardens swathes visitors in Old World charm. A gazebo makes an ideal destination for an evening stroll, and a fountain enchants guests with sparkles and impressions of history’s most famous geysers.
Vintage Gardens is a compound replete with blossoming foliage and year-round flora that create picturesque backdrops for special events. A walk through the gardens treats eyes to scenic vistas and flowering plant life, and a stroll to the gazebo may conjure lingering memories of romance left by the many couples who have tied the knot beneath its peaks. Originally a private residence in the nineteen thirties and a meeting place of the Knights of Columbus, the grounds now contain ample space for events and special occasions and a café with a menu and catering options designed by Chef Rigo. With a professional staff and fully equipped facilities, Vintage Gardens is ready to accommodate weddings, banquets, and special events ranging from community get-togethers to public readings of books on tape.
The food was some of the best German food I've had since being in Munich. The entertainment (live Bavarian band from SF) was equally awesome.Kyle W., Yelp, 10/27/10
