Brimming with 10 beers and an assortment of Old World festivities, Blue Moon’s Oktoberfest fills visitors with the customs and culture of Deutschland. Rather than bathing in a vat of mulled apple cider, guests can bask in the spirit of autumn by sampling seasonal brews such as Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale, Bob’s 47, and Warsteiner Oktoberfest (beer not included in today’s deal). Visitors will compete for T-shirts, hats, and the shotgun seat in the family Batmobile at a pretzel toss, where participants try to catch Bavarian snacks on plungers they’ve affixed to their heads. After running in the Bier Stein Challenge’s frothy relay race, fest-goers can devour hearty German cuisine from food vendors (food not included in today’s deal) or toast touchdowns with their new pint glasses as they watch a televised college-football bout. A silent auction will promote peace by raising funds for two veterans’ organizations, and a live band will help guests polka away animosity still lingering from the previous night's Monopoly game. Revelers may also enter a raffle ($1/ticket) for a chance to win Redhawks baseball tickets, a Coors Light golf bag, and a Boulevard tall metal cooler.

Earlywine Tennis Center helps amateur racket-wielders ascend to excellence with 12 well-lit outdoor courts and a fully stocked modern pro shop.
