To Do: Rustico’s Oktobeerfest

Tomorrow in the restaurant’s parking lot, seasonal brews will be flowing from noon to 6 PM, rain or shine.

As of yesterday, fall has finally arrived—just in time for tomorrow’s Oktobeerfest at Rustico in Alexandria. Out back in the restaurant’s parking lot, seasonal brews will be flowing from noon to 6 PM, rain or shine. There’s more than just drinking involved—bring the whole family for live music, kids’ activities like pumpkin-decorating and moon-bouncing, and a smorgasbord of food.

Admission is free, but tickets will be sold to trade in for featured suds, such as Spaten Oktoberfest and Red Hook Late Harvest, and food from Rustico and its Neighborhood Restaurant Group siblings (Evening Star Cafe, Tallula, EatBar, Vermilion, and Buzz). The chefs have all contributed to the autumn-themed roster of comfort food—think bratwurst, Emmental cheese and Cambonator ale soup, porchetta sliders, pumpkin ravioli, and more. Of course, across-the-street neighbor Buzz will have lots of cupcake flavors on hand, as well as hot chocolate to quench the little ones. Proceeds go to a local chapter of Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN).

Rustico, 827 Slaters La., Alexandria; 703-224-5051; rusticorestaurant.com.
