Small Bites: Celebrate Oktober

Travel to Germany through October for $10 with Court Square Tavern’s bratwurst platter: smoked brats from the Rock Barn, alongside spaetzle and sauteed red cabbage.

Celebrate Oktober
At Horse & Hound through October 28, diners can order from a special German menu (try the Kartoffelpuffer, a pan-fried potato pancake with housemade apple sauce and sour cream) and buy a stein filled with a German brew like Reissdorf Kolsch. Adjust the notch on your lederhosen, cause you’ll get discounted refills all evening long.

Time to eat the donuts
“Superior Donuts,” Live Arts’ play about a failing donut shop by the same name, runs from October 21 through November 19. Providing the dangerously delicious props? Carpe Donut, who’s frying up two dozen per performance for the cast to “use,” as well as several dozen as concessions. Sounds like the cast members might want to update their head shots before this one starts.

The great pumpkin dinner
On Tuesday, October 25, Clifton Inn’s executive chef, Tucker Yoder, will raise the humble pumpkin to holy heights in four courses featuring four different types of the season’s most bodacious gourd. Call 971-1800 for reservations.
