It’s officially my favorite time of year, FALL! It’s the perfect time to take advantage of those last couple outside events before winter freezes us indoors. Speaking of events, if you don’t have plans on October 4th-7th head down to Oktoberfest. It’s a German themed beer and food festival. Its located at 78 South St, New York, NY 10038. The festival is on one of the piers overlooking the Brooklyn bridge and east river. For F.I.T students coming from the dorms, you can take either the 2 or 3 train downtown to Fulton st. For all the commuters you can take any uptown or downtown A,C,J,Z,4, or 5 train to Fulton st. Don’t forget to RSVP for your free general admission ticket online because the lines do fill up and people will be their early. Also they have great online package deals for anyone looking to save some money on food and drinks. It’s a perfect setting for a night out with the girls or possibly a date. For all the competitive folks out there feel free to participate in the stein holding contests. Essentially it’s a contest to see who can hold a big glass mug full of beer the longest. Don’t forget to pick up a giant pretzel for your train ride home. Have fun and stay safe!
