Since 1933, servers and entertainers at Blob’s Park have led crowds in authentic bouts of stein hoisting and singing over platters of delicious German cuisine. A hefty beer list stocks gatherings with a frothy selection of delicious libations, with familiar, neighborly domestics, such as a Yuengling lager, or exotic German imports, such as the Augustiner Edelstoff. Authentic German entrees sneak up and bear hug taste buds with savory servings of Nurnberger weisswurst and sauerkraut or schweinschnitzel, a dish of breaded pork loin with cranberry and tomato salad. In addition to dishing out sudsy brews and appetizing meals, Blob’s Park treats lederhosen-laden guests to musical acts such as the folksy accordion waltzes of Leon Umberger & The Rheinlanders or the energetic shows of The Hubcaps, which celebrate the sounds of roots rock as well as Aerosmith’s little-known back catalog of polka hits. The restaurant’s dinner tables and dance floors cherish a long history of Teutonic shindigs, having the honor of hosting America’s first-ever Oktoberfest as well as being the site of Baron von Steuben’s celebratory keg stand after the Revolutionary War. In keeping with the venue’s legacy of merriment and delicious fare, families and friends gather at Blob’s throughout the year for feastings, celebrations of Sonnenwendfeier, and gregarious Karnivals.
