Music and drinks have long been enjoyed together, from turn-of-the-century gentlemen sipping ale around the Victrola to modern gentlemen sipping ale around the Victrola in a 3-D holographic recreation chamber. Some things never change with this Groupon.

Das Best Oktoberfest
Upon entering, Das Best Oktoberfest barrages the sights, sounds, and smells of Germany. Staffers dressed in traditional garb abound, greeting guests with smiles and pours of more than 150 beers, wines, and schnapps. Live oompah and polka bands provide a soundtrack of German drinking songs, enlivening jovial toasts over a sports team's win or a baby's first accordion solo. Frosty drinks wash down an array of authentic German foods available for purchase, including sausages, potato cakes, sour beef, and schnitzel. Revelers can punctuate the festival's pleasantries with victory at a host of onstage competitions, including Miss Oktoberfest, Best Beer Belly, and a pretzel-necklace competition.
Tysons Fall Harvest
It may be the inaugural year of Tysons Fall Harvest, but it already has the docket to rival any well-established fall festival. This family-friendly event will keep kids entertained with plenty of activities, from pony rides and petting zoos to a hay maze and pumpkin carving. Those who need to brush up on their carving skills can sit in on demonstrations from master pumpkin carvers or head to the craft corner to paint or just hug a gourd that escaped.
Even without kids in tow, adults will have plenty to do, including visiting the wine and beer garden for unlimited samples when they purchase a tasting glass, as well as shopping a marketplace with pumpkins and fall decor. They might even consider dropping by Rocknoceros's set at the live-music stage; they might be a kids' band, but their acclaim has landed them gigs at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and the Kennedy Center. A portion of the Harvest's proceeds will benefit the Spirit of Hope Children's Foundation.
