Bloktoberfest Weekend: A Strategy Guide


Bloktoberfest, the enormous fall block party, is happening this Saturday. It’ll have Broad and South Streets packed with people, beer, food, beer and more food. So if that sounds like the way you want to spend your Saturday (and who wouldn’t?), then it’s probably best to formulate a plan of attack before you go.  The dining will be pay as-you-go (as will the beer), so one of the first things you need to know is where you want to spend your time and cash.

But don’t worry. We have you covered with this comprehensive list of every restaurant and food truck that’ll be serving this weekend, plus a list of all the beers that’ll be available. So make your choices now and you’ll just be that much more prepared than everyone else when the time comes to start picking lines to stand in.
