Party Under the Big Tent delights Oktoberfest patrons with sizzling German food, thirst-quenching beverages, and dance-inducing Polka melodies (this Groupon is not valid for food and drink). Satisfy belly yearnings with a flavorful German bratwurst loaded with sauerkraut as you listen to the hypnotic sounds of Joe Maloy and his accordion, which combines the keys of a piano, the squeezability of a bagpipe, the melodic braying of a Julliard-trained billy goat. The one-acre tent party ensures no guest leaves with toe untapped by enlisting a slew of additional musical acts brimming with German flare, including the Genesee Valley Alpine Band (September 17–18), The Spitze Band (September 23–24), and Alpine Keys (September 23–24).

The New You's licensed aestheticians ensconce fatigued figures in therapeutic wraps that aim to expel impurities and trim waistlines. After an initial consultation and health evaluation, wrap-ready patrons snuggle inside a layer of linens before being tucked in a temperature-raising Far Infrared sauna blanket that heats bodies still chilled after weeks spent catching frozen shrimp in the Arctic. Meditation and music selections help the mind rest, relax, or relive the height of the '90s party-rap era, and the friendly staff imparts body-wrapping knowledge throughout the session.
The beverage slingers at Marshall Street Bar & Grill draw from a full-service bar and a wide selection of draft beers while sating appetites with a menu of classic pub fare served in a friendly, neighborhood atmosphere. Diners can toast to a new job or a new phase of the lunar cycle over frosty glasses of Saranac pomegranate wheat or Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald. Hops play starring role in the Three Heads Skunk Black IPA , and Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy and Sierra Nevada Summerfest pay delicious homage to the dog days. After moistening palates, patrons can dig into the Kilauea Volcano plate, a flavorful eruption of chicken fingers, a sloppy joe, and a choice of two meat or vegetarian entrees. Choose from a main course smorgasbord of a hot dog, hamburger, pulled pork, or an additional sloppy joe, or harvest their plant-kingdom cousins: the veggie dog, veggie burger, or veggie sloppy joe. Fries, macaroni salad, jalapeño queso, and hot sauce finish the cornacopious spread.
