Saturday 10/9 in Soulard

It's always a great time to be in Soulard, but here are some things happening today that I deem worthy enough to blog about at 2am.

  • Soulard Oktoberfest 11a-12:30a
    • Though moved to Lyon Park this year, this event is still a must-see. 2 Big Stages, 5 tents, 14 bands, and an expected 1,000 kegs of beer for your enjoyment.  $5 gets you in, $4 gets you a brat in a pretzel bun, and $10 gets you a liter of premium German beer in a fancy mug that you get to keep.
      • Saturday Events
        • Beer Fest: Raderberger &Tucher Tent from 3 to 5:30 p.m
        • Sausage Eating Contest: Budweiser Stage from 2:30 to 3 p.m
        • Beer Stein Holding Contest: The Spaten Tent from 7:30 to 8 p.m
    • While parking may seem a bit odd with the new location, it really isn't that bad.  Best of all, it's free.  Find somewhere in Soulard, grab a beer in a plastic cup and walk to Lyon Park.
    • Hammerstone's in Soulard was running a shuttle to Lyon Park on Friday, I imagine they will on Saturday too.  $1 Bud Select drafts and $2 Spaten
  • International Tap House
    • College Football 2:30p
      • Notre Dame and and Pitt play on NBC and you can be sure that iTap will be packed with  ND fans 
      • Alabama and South Carolina square off on CBS
      • The Denard Robinson show is on ABC this week as Michigan and Michigan State do battle 
    • Mizzou and Blues 6p
      • You may have heard that because Dish Network and Fox are in a pissing contest, customers are out of luck if they have Dish and want to watch either the Tigers or the Blues today.  Have no fear because iTap has DirecTV and will have both games playing tonight for your viewing pleasure.Blues on Ch. 671 and Tigers on 657
      • $3 Mizzouri Products during the Mizzou game.  That includes Schlafly and O'Fallon Pumpkin, FYI
    • Oktoberfest Mugs All Day
      • $15 gets you an Oktoberfest Mug filled with a German beer
      • $10 gets you a half liter boot on a lanyard filled with a German beer
