Dollar Days: Oktoberfest fun continues
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
While Oktoberfest in Germany ended Oct. 7, here in the good ol’ US of A, we are still celebrating beer and brats.
From 2-10 p.m. Saturday, head out to the Golf Club at Wescott Plantation in Summerville for the Summerville Rotary Oktoberfest.
This family-friendly event will include a DJ during the day, live music from the Hans Schmidt Band in the evening, a brat-eating contest and, of course, beer. There also will be hamburgers, barbecue and waffles on a stick.
For the kids, there will be jump castles, face-painting and a magic show.
Costumes are encouraged.
The entry cost is $5, and food and beverages will be available for purchase. Proceeds from the event go to numerous charities and educational programs, including the Summerville Miracle League, Wounded Warrior Project, clean water projects and scholarships for Fort Dorchester High School, Trident Technical College and Charleston Southern University.
‘Pint of Hope’
Holy City Brewing has put together this second annual Park Circle pub crawl 5-11 p.m. Saturday to benefit Lowcountry AIDS Services.
The event will feature stops at The Barbeque Joint, Cork Neighborhood Bistro, DIG in the Park, EVO, Madra Rua Irish Pub, The Mill, Park Pizza Co., Sesame Burgers and Beer, and The Sparrow, all of which will donate a portion of sales.
The crawl also will include a silent auction at Cork 5-10 p.m. and live music from the likes of Stereoreform, Lindsay Holler, El Camino, Sans Jose and Elim Bolt, among others. An after-party at The Sparrow will follow.
Holy City Brewing will be offering up off-the-market beers it entered in the Great American Beer Fest in Denver.
The event is $10 in advance, $15 the day of. Crawlers may pre-register at www.aids-services.com or The Sparrow, 1078 E. Montague Ave.
Food Truck Rodeo
On Sunday, the young professional group the Red Shoe Society is putting on its inaugural Food Truck Rodeo.
From noon-4 p.m., enjoy food from Foodie Truck, Taco Boy, Refuelers and Outta My Huevos. Live music and cold beer also will be on hand.
The cover is $10 and includes your first beer. The event supports the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston and will be held at 81 Gadsden St.

It’s the last Yappy Hour of the season, so I suggest you head out to James Island County Park 4-8 Thursday to enjoy it. Pick up your pooch and enjoy live music from local band Old You, beverages and a bit of mingling.
Admission is free with the $1 park admission. Beverages will be available for purchase.
