Doesn’t an ice-cold beer sound like a great idea? Or how about a glass of German wine and yummy pretzels with mustard? Well, Octoberfest is just around the corner (October 14) and tickets will be on sale starting this month. This fun event is presented by the Women of Quail Creek Scholarship Program which provides assistance to local southern Arizona women who want to improve their lives through training and community college programs. Come out and listen to oom-pah music from the Bouncing Czechs, have a brewski, win some raffle prizes, do the “chicken dance” and support this great cause. You will be able to reserve your own pilsner or wine glass in advance ($8) to enjoy a beer or glass of wine at the event. Seating will be by table reservation, so be among the first to get your tickets ($30 each) and select a table for you and your friends. Tickets go on sale Monday, August 27 in the Madera Clubhouse at 5:30 p.m. Watch the What’s Happening email for other dates and times to buy tickets.
