Quick ideas if you're bored this weekend and looking for a good beer event.
My friend and colleague, Mark, recommends the Sippin' by the River event, while I've been to Ludwig's Oktoberfest and highly recommend it for its quality German music, dancing, food, and beer drinking in the street. One of the very few quality German establishments in the area. (Good for them, bad for the rest of us. But, they are doing it right!)
Ludwig's 7th annual Oktoberfest - Sat. 9/24/05 - 12noon-8:30pm outside; all day and night 'til 2am inside- 1315 Sansom Street - 215.985.1525 - Pay as you go
