Good pubs, Good Beer, Good People

It's that time again!

Basil T's in Toms River has just announced the date for their annual Oktoberfest Celebration--Friday, Oct 3 at 7 PM. If you're a fan of exceptional German fare and equally outstanding beer, mark the date and make your reservations.

Chef Extraordinaire Steve Farley is prepping for yet another memorable evening, and Biermeister Supreme Dave Hoffman (who brews an Oktoberfest beer to die for) is hard at work making the beers that will complement FarleyFare. The Dirndl Beauties, those pulchritudinous porters of magnificent jugs of fine brew, will be in their usual spectacular, authentic array, and the Firehouse Polka Band will put the oomph in the oompah which enthralls a crowd so primed that they sing "Ein Prosit" as they pull into the Basil T's parking lot.

You can see the pictures from last year's fest here.

As always, yours truly will be on hand to lead the singing, take some incriminating photos, give away prizes, pick on unsuspecting revelers and to provide stark counterpoint to the beauty of the Dirndl Girls. I may even talk about the beer and food.

Also as usual, The Brothers Gregorakis (both named Peter after some bizarre Greek custom and a vat of Ouzo consumed by their parents) will be on hand to lend their special brand of hospitality to the evening.

But make your reservations early and plan your travel south on the Parkway accordingly. This classic sells out pretty quickly. For info, call (732) 244-7566 and tell them The PubScout sent you.

Bring your wife, your girlfriend (though not both), your parents and your pals. This is one you don't want to miss.

I'll always wonder how much that banana in the middle paid those ladies to pose in that photo.

I hope they had their shots!

Banana? Is it showing?
