Saturday is about to be nuts!
Are y'all gearing up for a great Saturday? The weather has done its job. I just got back from a good ass jog, grabbed a smoothie from Lotta Frutta and totally justified the awesome varieties of brew I am going to consume today! I'm talking about hitting up Der Biergarten's official kickoff of Oktoberfest (which I featured here) starting at noon followed by one of my favorite spots for imbibing in all of Atlanta, Deckard's Tavern (right on Ponce in that Home Depot shopping center across from the decrepit City Hall East) for their first annual "Sausage Fest" at 3 p.m.! No, don't worry about the latter's name, it won't be all dudes. My man Chef Matt Deckard, Manager Alex & Co. are actually serving all-you-can-eat sausages bought from the local Spotted Trotter Sausages who take their links seriously! To add, there's live jamming, HDTVs showing the college games and some off-the-chain brews on tap. Peep their steez:
Bells Octoberfest, Rogue Maierfest, Ayinger Oktoberfest, Victory Festbeir, Coney Island Freaktoberfest, Heavy Seas Prosit, Ayinger Kirta-Halba, Yuengling Oktoberfest, Spaten Oktoberfest just to name a few... and a special keg top secret keg from Terrapin.
Plus, the place is plush, Chef Matt is no joke on the grill and overall, it's just simply my joint to go and kick it!
Last, I would recommend stopping by Green's afterwards (or Hop City, Ale Yeah!, The Beer Growler...) and stock up on cold ones for the long night of sports bliss! Okalahoma vs. FSU at 8 should be gangster followed by Floyd Mayweather throwing blows with Victor Ortiz late night. I mean, sh*t, check out this footage of the weigh-in:
Oh, and with those damn Sunday laws still in effect, tomorrow's fridge needs to be stocked too. Unless, of course, you are going to a Taco Mac (Champions, Deckard's, The Grove...) to get your sip on, cheer on your NFL fantasy team and get in the face of your fellow league members. And how could I forget Mike Vick's return against the Falcons Sunday night??? What?!!!
Anyway, wash that Friday night off of ya and get ready for an awesome Saturday and Sunday!
