Here are some other lowlights from this week on DineSafe.
While you probably already took part in Steam Whistle's excellent Oktoberfest bash at our recommendation (since it was included in our highlights of Toronto Beer Week), there are still a handful of opportunities coming up to unleash your inner Bavarian.
Here are our picks for the best Oktoberfest celebrations in and around Toronto, so grab your day planner and launder your dirndl, it's drinkin' time. Prost!
