On Saturday, September 8, Frankie Bones created their own theresienwiese (meadow) complete with die festhalle (beer hall) for the first annual Franktoberfest! While enjoying delicious German foods such as authentic schnitzel and bratwurst, festival attendees competed for best costume and moustache, tried their hands and arms at raising the stein and beer carry races, all while tapping their toes to traditional German music by
The Rhinelanders. It was definitely a feast fit for King Ludwig I and his ladylove Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (for whom the Oktoberfest meadow was named).
Didn’t make it to Frankie Bones’ Oktoberfest celebration? No need to cry in your beer just yet. The Franktoberfest menu continues through October 31. Frankie Bones will be serving German favorites such as beef rouladen—tender sirloin stuffed with bacon and pickles, braised in onion gravy, served with buttered egg noodles and braised red cabbage; pan-sautéed trout with dill sauce; authentic schnitzels with braised red cabbage and spaetzle; knockwurst and bratwurst plates; and our mouthwatering Bavarian style sauerbraten, sweet and sour marinated roast beef, spaetzle and braised red cabbage.
Save room for dessert, because the German chocolate cake with coconut filling, chocolate icing and toasted pecans is sehr lecker (very tasty). Kick back with Samuel Adams Octoberfest and Franktoberfest Bier on tap, or a glass of German wines! Food items will vary at lunch and dinner, and the regular menu will still be available. So stop in and enjoy the Oktoberfest celebrations at Frankie Bones Restaurant and Lounge. O’zapft is!
