Las Olas Oktoberfest

I've decided to take a tour around South Florida for some key Oktoberfest celebrations. Last weekend, the Riverside hotel in Fort Lauderdale hosted the first Las Olas Oktoberfest, so I checked it out on Saturday. I think the lawn at the hotel is too small for Oktoberfest, and it seemed too much of a family event for my taste. Then again, I went during daylight hours. Those with offspring should have the right to grab a drink without having to hire teenagers to babysit for twice the federal minimum wage, but us without babes still want a place to get a good daytime buzz. -- Maria Murriel
