Saturday, Oct. 2: Maltoberfest V

"(We've) been blessed by the gods of intoxication. For inviting Tacoma's craziest people and feeding them 10,000 ounces of gnarly brew, we've had surprisingly little trouble," event co-creator Craig Egan told us prior to last year's Maltoberfest. Amazingly, that streak of drunken good fortune has only continued. A fine mash

Friday, Oct. 8: Strength

  Strength was just a rock band, but soon they would transform into a quintessential party band: part disco, part R&B, part electronica, part funk. Their ability to transform a room into a pulsating party machine was on full display in their last appearance in Tacoma, at the Squeak and Squawk.

So, Oktoberfest isn't official over until the end of this weekend, but it's really quite over for me. I needed to shake-off the sauerkraut and gut busting brats for something that reminded me of vacation. I haven't been on a real vacation in over two years, and at this rate,
