Cheers to Oktoberfest, celebrate tacos and tequila or pair cheeses with local beer this weekend.
"Break out your lederhosen, steins and das boots because the only way to celebrate Oktoberfest, without actually being in Germany, is to have one of our own! This year our event will be bigger and better than ever! Always held in the large lot behind Transport Brewery, we want to make sure we have enough space where everyone can feel comfortable. Drinks will be sold individually to anyone 21 years of age or older." Friday from 4 to 10pm, Saturday from 1 to 10pm and Sunday from 10am to 7pm.
"Celebrate our Iron Anniversary (sixth year) with us by exploring North Kansas City on Sept. 25, 2021! Just a quick ride over the Heart of America Bridge from downtown Kansas City, cruise among 20-plus pubs, breweries, distilleries, entertainment centers and pop ups by bike, foot, scooter or other safe mode of transportation. We'll have prizes throughout the event with a grand prize for those who complete at least one path. Costumes are highly encouraged, and the best ones will be rewarded! New for this Pint Path: Bike Fun Ride. North Kansas City is just 4.63 square miles and flat, very flat – perfect for a Fun Ride! The ride starts and ends at The Little Store & Café, 2107 Knox.
