Beer, sausage and sauerkraut balls - what more do you need the last weekend of September? Oh, and I forgot to mention polka. Who doesn't love polka?

What to eat & drink:

All your favorite German dishes will be served by all your favorite German restaurants. Schmidt's will sell their famous brats, Bahama Mama Sandwiches, frankfurters, fried bologna, German potato salad and the greatest cream puffs known to man.

Hey Hey Bar & Grill will have their awesome sauerkraut balls as well as potato pancakes and chicken and noodles.

Break out your steins and wash it all down with great German brews - Hofbrau, Paulaner Oktoberfest, Hudepohl and Bitburger.

Entertainment:

Polka, polka, polka all weekend long. Well, not really - I just get a kick out of polka.

There's also Cincinnati's shtick-fueled party band Naked Karate Girls, who'll cover rock and pop hits at 8 p.m. Friday. And Luxury Brown will serve up R&B, jazz, pop and Motown at 4 p.m. Saturday.

Don't miss:

Have you ever thought, "I could eat a million Schmidt's cream puffs"? Apparently you're not the only one. Make sure to check out the cream-puff-eating contest at 7 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday.
