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.

Wined and Dined at Urbano Cafe

DSC03491by Steven Doyle

There is plenty of love to be found on Fitzhugh near Bryan Street. That is where you will discover Jimmy’s Food Store, home of the Italian sausage kings and the largest hoard of Italian wines in the state. You will also stumble onto a duo of spaces that hosts a fantastic little restaurant we hear so very little about in the media, but is first on the lips of oneophiles both near and far, Urbano Cafe.

Owned by Kristen and Mitch Kauffman, the tiny restaurant, and its sister room Urbano Too, is always filled with lively conversation and terrific wines supplemented by a short list of dishes that will please all palates.  A recent visit netted a beautiful display of appetizers such as their Caprese S’Mores, a tantalizing meze of  mozzarella between toasted crostini with tomato and balsamic syrup, and a salmon avocado poke ceviche with taro chips, green onions and ponzu drizzle. Sheer happiness as the conversation elevates with a second pour of the BYOB wine you supplied.   Continue reading
