Oktoberfest at the Deutsches Haus will be held this year at their present, threatened location, 200 South Galvez Street, just a block off Canal Street. You can take the street car. It runs on September 24, beginning at 4:00 in the afternoon, and then continues on every Friday and Saturday in October. If you haven't been, I recommend you go. It's a great space and, if you are a man, you'll be treated to the most stately urinal in New Orleans. It's a great club full of very nice people, the way most New Orleanians are, and you don't have to speak German to get along (good for people like me!).
If you like beer and good food, you'll appreciate the Deutsches Haus. They have both as well as good company.
