Why not lead a German shepherd to the Brewhouse’s Oktoberfest that directly benefits DAWG (Dog Adoption & Welfare Group) on Sunday, October 7? And if Oktoberfest beer-generally more malty, more amber than your average lager-from the Brewhouse and elsewhere isn’t enough, there’s bratwurst and sauerkraut to be had. The Brewhouse also promises servers who are “flaxen-haired frauleins,” as if blonds by the beach are something new. Polka music by the beach is pretty unusual, though, and you’ll get to chicken dance to Oompahs and Papa Heinz while helping pups find homes.
Oktoberfest to benefit DAWG takes place on Sunday, October 7, from 2place on Sunday, October 7, from 2pm-close at The Brewhouse (229 W. Montecito St., 884-4664). Cost is $50 and the event is limited to 100 guests.
