Beautiful fall weather continues in Big Bear Lake this week with highs in the 60’s, lows in the 20’s – 30’s and lots of sunshine. Take advantage of these fantastic conditions to see the explosion of autumn colors all around the Valley. Some suggestions? Take a hike to Castle Rock, ride the chairlift at Snow Summit and mountain bike down miles of trails, take a 4 x 4 expedition through the back country, fly through the forest on a zip-line adventure, take a lake cruise and see the colors from below or take a helicopter tour and admire the beauty of the mountains from above. There is so much to do in Big Bear and this is one of the most enjoyable times of year to experience it!

10010661_R_OKTOBERFEST_0904This weekend, be sure to take part in Oktoberfest ‘Unplugged’. Check out all the details on this unique event on my Tuesday’s Topic post here.

The Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest celebrates 44 years of German style family fun and good times this year. Rated Southern California’s #1 Oktoberfest, this Fall’s festival offers authentic German entertainment, food and beer!

big-bear-bar-maidsNew last year and returning this year at Oktoberfest is Oktoberfest “Unplugged”. “Unplugged” features a five course German meal paired with a different beer or wine at each course.  Guests will be greeted with the traditional German Obstle and passed German cold-cuts and cheeses as they arrive.   The evening’s festivities include story telling by the personalities who started the Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest including Hans the Burgermeister, Ernie the long-time assistant Burgermeister, Bonnie the World Record Holder for carrying steins, and many more.  We’ll take you back to the old days and relive some of the antics, trials and tribulations that have made us world famous!  Learn the dances and sing-a-longs and the history behind them so you’ll be prepared for a full weekend of Oktoberfest fun.

Oktoberfest Unplugged
Speisekarte(menu)

Welcome to the 2nd annual “Oktoberfest Unplugged” evening. The following is this year’s specially created menu.  We are looking forward to celebrating an intimate, traditional German evening with new and old friends.

Festivities begin at 6:00 p.m. with dinner served at approximately 7:00 p.m.
We have planned a full night of German fun, great food and entertainment.  You will not want to miss a moment of the fun!10010661_R_OKTOBERFEST_0904

 

Anreger:

A sampling of German Sausages and Cheeses served with a Dill Mustard infused with Honey Bourbon Barenjager

Vorspeise:

Oma Bandows’ Herring Salat and Fleischsalat
A hearty portion of both Herring salat made in true ‘old World’ fashion and Fleishsalat, a meat salad made with beef, apples, pickles, capers and a variety of German seasonings.

Suppe:

Leberknödel Suppe
For anyone who has ever traveled to Germany, you will most likely recognize this Bavarian favorite!  Calf liver dumplings served in a seasoned beef bullion broth.

Salat Terzett:

A trio of salads including beet salad, cucumber salad and mixed greens with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing.

Hauptgericht:

Holstein Schnitzel and Rindsrouladen
Created in the late 19th century at a Berlin restaurant, this re-vamp of the traditional veal schnitzel was named after one Friedrich von Holstein. The crisp-fried veal topped with luscious egg and salty anchovies and capers is a brilliant study in contrasting flavors and textures.

A classical Sunday dish in Austria and Germany, Rindsrouladen is a thin beef filet rolled and filled with a blend of mustard, bacon and dill pickle.   Sides dishes include hand-made Spatzle, Red Cabbage and String Beans all served family-style.

Nachtish:

Hildegund’s Apfel Strudel with warm Vanilla Sauce topped with Barenjager Infused Whip Cream.

This is a  special intimate evening not to be missed!  The Oktoberfest “Unplugged” package includes Friday evening’s dinner and festivities, admission for both Saturday and Sunday, a souvenir one-liter stein and Oktoberfest party beads!  Tickets are limited, so pre-purchase your package now. Tickets are available HERE

We look forward to celebrating our heritage with you!

Autumn-Danny EngerBeautiful, fall weather continues this week here in Big Bear Lake with highs in the upper 60’s to low 70’s and crisp, cool nights. Autumn colors are at their peak and it is the perfect time to get into the forest and take it all in! Enjoy a hike or mountain bike ride and make sure to snap some photos. (This photo is from Danny Enger/Big Bear Scenery and Sunsets.) It’s gorgeous up here!!

If you grew up in the 80’s (like me!), you will want to head over to The Cave in the Village on Friday night to see ABC live in concert. No can of Aqua Net is safe!! Saturday and Sunday, be sure to grab your stein, slip into your lederhosen and practice your chicken dance moves at the 44th Annual Big Bear Oktoberfest, and Saturday night, flip on your flashlight and check out the dark side of the Big Bear Alpine Zoo during the Flashlight Safari.
