Head to Beethoven Maennerchor Halle und Garten to celebrate German culture (and that all-important quaffable product German's brew so well: beer) this weekend and next. Beethoven provides incomparable institutional charm at their annual Oktoberfest revelry. Friday includes, in 30-minute-long segments, performances by the San Antonio Accordion Club, Kelly Singers, Beethoven Kinderchor, Der Deutsche Volkstanzverein, Beethoven Concert Band with director Al Tapia, 3rd Generation, and the Lamplighters, Big Band Dance Orchestra.

Delicious traditional German food such as the popular Bratwurst and Potato Pancakes, not to mention a wide variety of German wine and beer, will be served throughout the evenings. Shows for all four days commence at 5 p.m. and there's usually dancing from 9 p.m. up until midnight.
