WHO/WHAT: Coconut Grove’s lauded eatery Glass & Vine is hosting an al fresco Oktoberfest celebration in the heart of Peacock Park on Saturday, October 22, 2016. South Florida’s rendition of a park-side Volksfest will feature a day outdoors with bites by Executive Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli and pours by local breweries The Tank Brewing Co., M.I.A. Beer Company and Concrete Beach Brewery.
Rapicavoli’s bites – with an ode to the world’s largest folk festival – will include Lamb Ribs with house-made guava BBQ sauce; Beef Sliders on fluffy potato rolls with blue cheese and onion jam; Duck Wings marinated in a house-made buffalo sauce and “ranch”; and Sausage on a potato roll topped with scallion relish and house-made mustard.
“Our park setting at Glass & Vine is the ideal backdrop to host an outdoor festival,” said Ignacio Garcia-Menocal, Grove Bay Hospitality Group Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Who doesn’t love Oktoberfest? Hearty dishes, great beer and cooler weather. We’re proud to partner with some of South Florida’s top local breweries for a day of food and fun.”
Guests can toast to the season at the park from 11AM to 5PM. The event is free to attend; food & drink tickets, priced at $5 each, include choice of one beer or one bite. Tickets will be sold onsite.
