“Dacha Beer Garden will be kicking off Oktoberfest 2014 this coming Saturday, September 20th. Doors will open early at 11am with “Angezapft ist” — “It’s tapped!” — the cry that goes up every year when the Lord Mayor of Munich hammers a spigot into the very first keg of Oktoberfest beer.
It’s going to be a gorgeous day. We encourage folks to get there before 2pm when the crowds generally come rolling in.
Starting Saturday through the end of Oktoberfest, Dacha will be serving Weihenstephaner Oktoberfestbier and staff will be wearing full lederhosen and dirndls. We’ll be raffling off prizes, hosting some amusing contests, and serving up special beer cocktails.
Oktoberfest beer will be included on our happy hour menu (Mon-Thurs 4pm till 7pm, $5 singles and $10 for boots) until the end of October.
As always – we’ll have traditional brats, ‘kraut and pretzels – for those looking for an authentic German experience. However, we’ve also introduced new kabobs on the menu that are pretty damn delicious. Marinated beef, lamb and pork skewers served with grilled pita and a cucumber salad.”
“The fifth annual DC State Fair will be held on September 20, 2014 from 12PM to 7PM at the Old City Farm and Guild located at 925 Rhode Island Ave NW.
The DC State Fair is partnering this year with the Homegrown DC Fair to put on an event showcasing the District’s food and artistic talent. Various contests will be held during the Fair, including: pie baking, funkiest-looking vegetable, honey, and pickled foods. Last year’s bike accessory contest winner was a child’s seat add-on for the Capital Bikeshare bicycles. New for this year is an ice cream contest where the District’s residents can show off their home-made ice cream and gelato. The popular homebrew contest will be held later this Fall. (more…)
“Tonight [Monday] at approximately 5:38 pm, citizens observed an adult male suspect making forced entry into a residence in the 1100 block of 8th St. NE and called 911. First District Officers quickly set up a perimeter and were assisted by K9 units. The suspect was later found inside and placed under arrest without incident.
Thanks to the outstanding work of First District Officers and the concerned neighbors, a burglary suspect was quickly apprehended and placed under arrest.”
You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
The ATV/Dirt Bike saga continues. A reader sends word last night at 10:45pm that there were 7-8 kids riding at 9th and H St, NE then headed towards K Street with one police car in pursuit. Looked like “one rider was caught at 9th and H” but the others got away. The reader reported that they were driving on both sides of the street crossing lanes of traffic. It’s interesting to note that he saw a police car in pursuit after yesterday’s discussion noting that MPD had previously been directed not to chase.
