This one is pretty self-explanatory. For some folks, October (I think we can all call it the best month of the year) is about that lovely German tradition of beer drinking from large mugs. At the 50th annual Richmond Oktoberfest, there will be men’s and women’s’ stein-hosting contests and live music from the Continentals and Die Lustigen Almdudler, which sounds authentic. $12-$15. Runs Friday 6 p.m. to midnight and Saturday, 3 p.m. to midnight. richmondoktoberfestinc.com.
