Oh, did you put away your lederhosen? Fool. The Oktoberfest parties continue into this weekend (and that should be it, no?) with oompah jams and authentic Bavarian food. The DoSeum (2800 Broadway St., 210-212-4453) kicks off the weekend with its third adults-only party since opening its doors this summer. The Oktoberfest-themed ReDo Recess includes access to the 100,000 square-foot museum, along with beer-making demos and brewer chats. Snack on sausage wraps from Kiolbassa and beer floats by The House Boozy Ice Cream and Brews. Tickets ($15) are available at

The second annual Oktoberfest Celebration at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa (9800 Hyatt Resort Drive, 210-767-7999) will go down on October 17 from 4-8 p.m. with access to the hotel's pools and waterparks. Admission also includes food, entertainment, one drink ticket and parking. A cash bar will be available for additional German and Texas craft brews.

Breakfast options are expanding across the city (and not just with all day breakfast at McDonald's). Orderup (999 E. Basse Road, Suite 193, 210-824-9600) launched a new breakfast menu served until 11 a.m. on weekdays and noon on weekends with scratch-made cinnamon rolls, four different breakfast pizzas, breakfast tacos and five breakfast bagelburgers along with smoothies, coffee and parfaits.

The guys at Mezcaleria Mixtli (5313 McCullough Ave., 856-630-5142) are hosting their fellow Break Fast & Launch cohort, Bombay Salsa Co. for a takeover on Sunday, October 25. From 5 p.m. to midnight, stop by for Indian-Mexican fusion including chicken papdum tacos, masala chaat and more.

Halloween is coming up fast. On Wednesday, October 28, Geeks Who Drink will host "Stupid Gets You Killed: A Walking Dead Quiz" at the Lion & Rose British Restaurant & Pub Forum location (8211 Agora Pkwy., #112). Brush up your chops — there's a ton of characters that have gone the way of the zombie. Teams must be no bigger than six members and each player must fork over a $5 admission charge.

Finally, Freetail Taproom (2000 S. Presa St., 210-625-6000) will screen Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, a cult classic starring Tyler Labine and El Paso native Alan Tudyk, which clocks in at 84 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Stop in on Thursday, October 29 at 8:30 p.m. for a costume contest and La Muerta prizes.
