Octoberfest

What special events happen during Octoberfest weekend? Is it a good weekend to visit? Married couple in 50's, no kids. Bella Vista Suites has available rooms, but only parkview. Any comments.

Should note that we like to sample the local Restaurants and watering holes, and other such night life.

this looked good we didn't get a chance to stop:

Sprecher's Pub: http://www.sprecherspub.com/

The Dancing Horses show looks like a neat venue to check out:

The Mailboat Tour ends in Sept. but is always great for a return trip.

The Lakeshore Path is a nice way to see the mansions/lake

You didn't say high or low end restaurants, but here's a list of a range that I think are good:

Hemingways A bit of Key West with a tiki bar and outside volleyball courts (courts are most likely not open in Oct.) and good BBQ...very fun

Grandview at the Geneva Inn right on Lake Geneva, wonderful food/wine, very high end

Baker House, right in downtown LG in an old mansion, costumed waiters, only small plates, fun place with views of the lake

Geneva Chophouse at Grand Geneva Resort for steaks also the Hunt Club at Geneva National for steaks and chops

Foley's Irish Woods west on Rt. 50 about a mile outside of LG, quaint Irish bar with good beer selection and comfort food
