At Old World, it’s smaller but actually a better scene for singles. There’s a good-sized patio with beer stations, food and tables. Inside, it’s hot and sweaty with a better band and people really cutting loose on the dance floor, especially for the chicken dance. There are even conga lines.
Almost as a bonus, there’s a small bar inside where people like to escape from the frenzy taking place just outside the door.
Old World Octoberfest runs until Oct. 29.
Admission is $10 on Fridays, $15 on Saturdays, $7 on Sundays and free on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
