Meridian Pint's 2012 Oktoberfest street party, timed to coincide with the nearby Columbia Heights Day, was a blast. Oktoberfest beers from Germany flowed at a beer garden in the middle of 11th Street, while two dozen American beers were on tap inside. A brassy German band performed traditional songs. Restaurant owners and bartenders climbed into a dunk tank for charity. Pups dressed in ballerina outfits and dirndls vied to win the Doggy Costume Contest.
Owner John Andrade says he plans to stick with the same formula this year, again coinciding with Columbia Heights Day. But expect more activities for kids, including a moon bounce and face painters, and tables for local vendors.
