DoItIndy Top 5, Sept. 19-25, 2011 Can you say Oktoberfest?

We always take time each week to research our events and try to find different activities for each list. Well…sometimes the cool stuff just comes in abundance and that you will find with our No. 1 and No. 2 urban events. What day do you want to Oktoberfest? Friday night or Saturday day?

5. Zannadoo at the Rathskeller Biergarten
AWESOME! For anyone who has enjoyed a good cover band, having a beverage and just relaxing – this is for you. Zannadoo has been around Indianapolis for several years and play quite frequently at the Rathskeller. A great event for a fall evening.

Great band!
ZannaDoo at the Rathskeller LIVE!

4. Indy Jazz Orchestra at Garfield Park
Who doesn’t love a free concert…and a free concert in a park. Garfield Park is truly one of Indianapolis’ hidden treasures (old, big, awesome). If you have never visited the park off of Raymond Street on the south side of Indianapolis, you are missing out! Indy Parks does a great job of providing free concerts at different parks through the summer. Getting colder out there…so the free concerts will end soon.
Bring a picnic, relax, have fun.

3. Clash of the Tailgaters at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Sample great food, and help kick off festivities for the Taste of the NFL kickoff event. Indianapolis is hosting this 2012 SuperBowl and it is time to get the party started! Great food, music, Galo wine, Colts cheerleaders and FUN!
Stop by on Friday and give back to Gleaner’s Food Bank. It is food, the Colts and more!

Clash of the Tailgaters
Who will win the kickoff event for Taste of the NFL. Come, eat, find out!


2. Oktoberfest at Herron Morton Place
Probst! Seems like there are a lot of these festivals, but this is the NEW fest that benefits this wonderful historical neighborhood. Food, drinks and lots of cool history. The coolest part is that some of Indy’s best food trucks will be on hand for some tasty goodness.  Be on the look out for the lady from Historic Indianapolis, she might be around! History is cool…

1. Monument Circle Oktoberfest
This Friday the Columbia Club offers a new fundraiser for the Monument Circle Restoration Project. Food, brats, music by Polka Boy (you don’t want to miss his music) and of course BEER. Monument Circle is wonderful, we love the landmark and are happy to see the CC get in on some restoration help. And…did I say ELEPHANT EARS!!!! My favorite.
