Saturday: Prost! The 7th Annual Ardmore Oktoberfest

Saturday: Prost! The 7th Annual Ardmore Oktoberfest

“Dust off your lederhosen and dirndls, and get ready to ring in Oktoberfest season on the Main Line,” said Ardmore Initiative Executive Director Christine Vilardo. “Ardmore may be thousands of miles away from the epicenter of celebrations in Europe but don’t be fooled. This Main Line town throws an Oktoberfest that rivals the best!”

Prost

Prost! The 7th Annual Ardmore Oktoberfest returns to Cricket Avenue on Saturday, September 23, 2017, from 2:00pm to 8:00pm. Downtown Ardmore will be transformed into a Bavarian wonderland complete with traditional German fare, brews, music and a brand-new VIP experience. McCloskey’s Tavern, John Henry’s Pub and Jack McShea’s will serve bratwurst, sauerkraut, pretzels with obatzda, potato pancakes, pierogies and more. McCloskey’s Tavern will tap nine beer and cider selections featuring local and seasonal favorites.

Prost

Live music will include The O’Fenders and the James D. Oompah Band. Family fun will include cookie decorating, pumpkin painting, arts and crafts, and face painting. Admission to Ardmore Oktoberfest is free with food and drink pay-as-you-go. Age verification wristbands are a $1.00 donation for those 21 and up (with identification). Tickets are also available for a new Tired Hands Brewing Company VIP beer garden for only $50 each. For VIP tickets and more information, visit www.ardmoreoktoberfest.com or call (610) 645-0540.

Prost

New for 2017, Ardmore Oktoberfest will offer an exclusive VIP ticket for $50 that gives the ticket holder access to the Tired Hands Brewing Company VIP Beer Garden. Enjoy an exclusive tented area to enjoy food and beer not offered to the general public – with the added benefit of shorter lines and less waiting. VIP ticket comes with four beers – including a rarity from Tired Hands not available to the public – plus unlimited soft drinks and water, light German-inspired fare, and a limited edition cup. VIPs can also use their beer tickets at VIP skip lines at the main beer truck outside the special tent.

Ardmore Oktoberfest is organized by Ardmore Initiative with local Ardmore restaurants and businesses, with support from Oktoberfest‘s Presenting Sponsor McCloskey’s Tavern. Tired Hands Brewing Company is the official sponsor of the first-ever VIP beer garden.

Ardmore Oktoberfest is the perfect example of businesses working together to create a unique experience for our residents and visitors,” added Vilardo. “This is one of Ardmore’s popular events with nearly 5,000 people attending last year. I am not certain that McCloskey’s Tavern and John Henry’s Pub knew how popular this event would become when they hosted the first Ardmore Oktoberfest in 2011.”

Embiid
Joel Embiid seems to be everywhere lately but the basketball court. My friend Dr. Thanuja Hamilton had just left a Patrice Banks book signing -#sheCANic Girls Auto Clinic Repair Center at Phila Library and decided to stop by Insomnia Cookies near Chestnut St and started chatting with Joel telling him she knew him from somewhere. He then told her he was a tennis player, he gave her the name, and left with the parting words “Trust The Process”. Then it clicked she said. BTW Patrice Banks will be on Good Morning America Friday morning.Embiid
I noticed Hats In The Belfry has opened a up next to men’s shoe store ToBox in the 1800 block of Chestnut (remember a few years back I told you this corridor would become the Fashion District of Philly, after Joan Shepp moved nearby. It definitely is.Embiid
Sad to hear my friends Lisa Gaudio’s step mother songwriter Judy Parker Gaudio passed away last week, on her 79th birthday. I met Judy a few times at events Lisa hosted including her daughter’s wedding where I took this shot. Bob Gaudio as you know is the original “Jersey Boy” having written and sung many of the famed groups songs including a few with Judy her most well-known songs “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)” and “Who Loves You,” which were recorded by ‪Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.

Embiid
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski was in town yesterday speaking and shilling her book “Know Your Value” at IBX. Tagging a long was her morning co-host on “Mornings with Joe” Joe Scarborough.
