The first people to successfully paint the town red spent more time haphazardly assembling scaffolding and arguing over who got to be the foreman than enjoying the results. Take the planning out of carousing with today's Groupon: for $12, you get an admission package to the Peninsula Oktoberfest hosted by Bullfrog Media on Saturday, October 15, at Courthouse Square in Redwood City (a $25 value). Each package includes:
- A wristband
- A beer mug
- Two beer tickets
Peninsula Oktoberfest patrons gather each year in celebration of the quintessential autumnal combination of frothy beer, invigorating live music, and Germany’s timeless epicurean treats. After reflecting upon the brisk fall air or the practicality of lederhosen as business wear, guests can refuel thinking caps with authentic German fare and culinary craftwork by local vendors including Bavarian Pretzel Works, Harry's Hofbrau, and Olde Tyme Kettle Korn. German beer from the Spaten flows cordially into patrons' glasses, whereas local breweries such as Devil's Canyon Brewing Company and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. keep taste buds soaked with seasonal stein stuffers. Triple Voodoo Brewing, Lucky Hand Beer, and Uncommon Brewers also keep patrons supplied with specialty beers and secret handshakes, and musicians such as The Internationals integrate authentic accordion notes and brass harmonies to tempt visitors' ears.
In addition to toasting the arrival of fall, Peninsula Oktoberfest raises much-needed funds for charitable organizations such as the Redwood City Education Foundation, a volunteer foundation dedicated to supporting education programs.
