I love La Crosse! I’ve never been there for Octoberfest, but I have been to Buzzard Billies. They have great food and atmosphere. I also love the retro martini bar upstairs. I think it’s called the Starlight Lounge. La Crosse is one of the hubby and my favorite weekend trips, especially on the motorcycle. There are no bad roads between there and our home in New Glarus, WI. Unfortunately, some of them got washed out with the flooding this summer.
This weekend (10/5-10/7) is Oktoberfest in New Glarus. It’s not the traditional time for Oktoberfest but it’s pretty smart because Monday is a holiday for some, so it brings people in for a long weekend rather than a day trip. I will be selling tickets at the beer tent on Saturday night. With high temps predicted to be in the 80’s, it should be a crazy weekend!
