Irish bag of polka magic
Austin, TX (Vocus) September 24, 2010
This year Fadó Irish Pub & Restaurant turns thirteen and is hosting a two day bash to celebrate. Since no one throws a party like the Irish, Fadó is taking an entire weekend to honor the outstanding performances of staff and regulars as well as celebrate the biggest beer festival in the world, Oktoberfest. The weekend of Friday, October 1st and Saturday, October 2nd is Fadóktoberfest.
Starting Friday October 1st at 6pm, Fadó will host an awards ceremony to honor outstanding performances of staff and regulars over the last 13 years. The party comes complete with a champagne greeting, red carpet and birthday cake as well as an in memoriam featuring beloved Fado favorites over the past 13 years. Visit http://www.fadoirishpubawards.com to cast your vote.
Saturday, October 2, Fadó Irish Pub & Restaurant promises to deliver an Oktoberfest with all the brats, steins and live music anyone can handle. Starting at 4pm, festivities begin with D.J. Justin K and his “Irish bag of polka magic” and a chance to compete in the bratwurst eating contest. Later, if your polka dancing fails to attract the eye of a Bavarian beauty, our strongman stein holding competition is the chance to be seen. There will also be a chicken dance contest and a chance to win $5,000. After the events, Austin’s own Power Duo, featuring Patrick Flemming will take the stage to rock the night away.
So, strap on the lederhosen and pull on those sexy dirndl skirts. The festivities begin at 4pm and end late! For more details, visit Fado Oktoberfest
