October 8: Big Oktoberfest Bash at Flamingo Hotel

Posted By on Wed, Oct 6, 2010 at 9:53 AM

“B.O.B.” might mean a hit song by OutKast to some people, but around these sudsy parts it means only one thing: the annual Big Oktoberfest Bash put on by the Sonoma County Museum. Any good Oktoberfest worth its weight in ABV requires oodles of beer, and the B.O.B. has attracted the cream of the hops in local microbreweries Lagunitas Brewing Company, Russian River Brewing Company, Third Street Aleworks, Ace Cider, Moonlight Brewing Company and others, many premiering new beers exclusive to the event. Wineries will be pouring wine, local caterers will be serving up food and the music of Old Jawbone ties it all together between the portrait studio and raffle prizes. It’s a great way to get a buzz and support the Sonoma County Museum, whose exhibits recently have been blowing our minds, on Friday, Oct. 8, at the Flamingo Hotel. 2777 Fourth St., Santa Rosa. 5pm to 9pm. $30–$40. 707.579.1500.
