The 2014 Ultimate Guide To Addison’s Oktoberfest

Oktoberfestby Steven Doyle

Named one of the country’s most authentic Oktoberfest celebrations by Forbes and USA Today, Addison Oktoberfest features four days of family-oriented entertainment. German entertainers in authentic costumes perform traditional Bavarian folk dances, schuhplattling, oompah music, sing-a-longs, yodels and more. A special “Oktoberfest” Paulaner Bier is served along with several types of German sausage, sauerkraut, strudel, giant pretzels and more. There are carnival rides, midway games, children’s entertainment and activities and a 5K run and 1 mile fun run benefiting Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer.

For guests who visit Munich’s famed Oktoberfest, the ticket to have is in the VIP balconies of the 14 bier tents at the festival. At Addison Oktoberfest, the massive 30,000 square foot Schloss Addison tent has a similar opportunity. Noted chef and restaurateur Richard Chamberlain will host Chamberlain’s Brau Haus, a full-service restaurant overlooking the Addison Oktoberfest busy dance floor.   Continue reading

DSC03346by Steven Doyle

The latest restaurant to open with quick public approval is Scotch and Sausage. With a name like that you best have plenty of both, and they do. Look for 20  hand crafted sausages and over 100 choices for scotch. Add a few extras such as their insanely good triple cooked fries and scotch eggs, and you have a recipe for delicious.

The menu offers over 20 varieties of local and house-made sausage sandwiches (including several vegan, pork free and gluten free options) featuring beef, chicken, venison, quail, antelope and more, and all sausages are priced $8 and below. They are all-natural, small batch production with no by products. The sausages not made in house are produced locally at Kuby’s using the Scotch and Sausage recipes.    Continue reading

Little Elm’s Brew and Cue

brew2by Brian Wall

Little Elm joined the ranks of the craft beer movement last weekend, June 14, when the first Brew and Que happened. While it was a little warm, there was a pleasant enough breeze off the lake and some shade in certain spots close enough to the bands to enjoy the day. The park offered adequate parking and volleyball courts for some exercise. A standard playground rounded it out for the parents that visited the fest.

The food at the fest was a great variety of barbeque, street tacos, Cajun and others. The only downside to the food vendors were the supplies on hand. A few vendors ran out of food only a few hours into the six hour fest. This can be expected from a first year event when the amount of attendees is underestimated.   Continue reading
