Enjoy a merry German Beer Hall atmosphere with friends dressed to the nines in their Lederhosen (you can wear your jeans!). Drinks provided by Georgetown Brewing and delicious German style fare from Dan the Sausageman/Tin Room Bar never disappoints! The spirited live-auction will be led by Highline friend and alumn, KJR’s Dick Fain.
The roots of our Oktoberfest Dinner, Dance and Auction can be traced back to a rock n’ roll dance held October 2006 that included a “Best ‘Elaine’ (Seinfeld) dance contest!” (We’re looking for video!) B Rich & the Poor Boy$ played classic hits from the 60’s and 70’s until midnight at the Normandy Park Cove. Today’s Oktoberfest is still held at the Normandy Park Cove, and there is still dancing, but now this annual event has a merry German Beer Hall atmosphere.
