THE GO GUIDE Real beer, blues, ba­con and Ween

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - FRONT PAGE -

No of­fense to my lo­cal bar, brew­ery and boite, but at least once dur­ing Oc­to­ber, I find my­self de­cid­ing to give a schnitzel about the au­then­tic­ity of my Ok­to­ber­fest ex­pe­ri­ence. I don’t al­ways need more than an over­flow­ing dirndl and stein of mys­tery beer, but when I do, I look for the lo­cal Ger­man club.

At noon Satur­day, the

Amer­i­can Ger­man Club of the Palm Beaches Lake Worth

in kicks off its two-week­end cel­e­bra­tion of Ok­to­ber­fest for the 45th time. As in the past 10 years, fes­ti­val or­ga­niz­ers will bring in the par­ty­rock band Helden­steiner, di­rect from Mu­nich’s Löwen­bräuFesthalle.

The all-ages fes­ti­val, with car­ni­val rides, ven­dors and plenty of food, runs this Fri­day-Sun­day and Oct. 19-21 at the club, 5111 Lan­tana Road. Tick­ets cost $10 (per day), $6 for ages 7-14, free for 6 and younger. Park­ing is free nearby with free shut­tle ser­vice, with limited VIP park­ing also avail­able for $15. Visit Face­­i­canGer­manClubOfThePalmBeaches.

Ok­to­ber­fest takes place on two more Satur­days at the

Ger­man Amer­i­can Club of Hol­ly­wood,

in­clud­ing this Satur­day at 4 p.m. Along with au­then­tic food and beer from Mu­nich’s Hof­bräu München, this week­end fea­tures the pageant. Tick­ets cost $10, younger than 12 free. Park­ing is free. The fi­nal Ok­to­ber­fest cel­e­bra­tion at the Ger­man Amer­i­can Club of Hol­ly­wood, 6401 Wash­ing­ton St., takes place Oct. 27. Visit Face­ Ger­manAmer­i­canClubHol­ly­wood.
