SOUTH STREET — While nothing tops Oktoberfest at Brauhaus Schmitz, Karneval is a pretty big deal, too. They've got a week's worth of events lined up starting on Thursday, February 27, and if you're willing to don some "Karneval-themed garb," you could even earn a chance to win a trip to Germany during Oktoberfest. (But there are also smaller perks, like beer specials and fastnachts.) Get the full details here.
MANAYUNK — This week's Dinner, Beer, & Movie Night (Thursday, February 27 starting at 7 p.m.) at Old Eagle Tavern will feature Braveheart, pints of Barren Hill Scotch Wallace, and a special Scottish menu. (Available a la carte or as a three-course prix fixe for $20.) But will there be Forfar bridies? Oh, absolutely there will!
FISHTOWN — On Saturday, March 1, Cedar Point Bar and Kitchen will celebrate its first birthday with some major fanfare: a full-on Mardi Gras-themed block party, with tons of food and bands and more. The party runs from 2 to 6 p.m.
