Mail it out, shut your PC down, and let out a resounding woohoo! The weekend is here, and it’s approaching us with a warm, warm hug. Let’s check out what it has in store for us!

It’s not hard for us to come up with an excuse to drink. This weekend though is extra special for us beer lovers as the German Club Manila, in cooperation with Sofitel Philippine Plaza invites us to indulge in the 73rd Oktoberfest Manila. It’s the most authentic celebration of the German tradition this side of the equator, and promises an Oktoberfest experience like no other.

To be held at Sofitel’s Harbor Garden Tent, the atmosphere is sure to be vibrant and festive as the venue has been dressed up to simulate how it feels to be in the real festival in Munich. An overload of authentic Bavarian treats including fresh roasted pork knuckles, roasted calf, laugen rolls, grilled sausages and yes, ice cold beer will be served to sate your appetites. And to add to the merriment, The Bavarian Sound Express will be keeping you singing and dancing all night long as the beer loosens everyone up.

Oktoberfest 2011 happens from 6pm until midnight on October 20 to 22, and from 10:30am to 2pm on October 23. For ticket sales, please call the German Club Manila at (63 2) 817-3552, (63 2) 818-3552 or email:

Buy art, help people
Art Flood 2011, a 3-day art sale where galleries and collectors sell modern and contemporary artworks, is proof that we can transform the horrific into something positive. Art Flood was born in the wake of Typhoon Ondoy, and whose previous beneficiaries include the Philippine National Red Cross-Rizal Chapter (Makati Branch) and Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig. Now on its 3rd year, Art Flood now hopes to raise funds for the Sagip Buhay Medical Foundation Lupus Fund for the patients of the Philippine General Hospital.

The art sale will be happening simultaneously with MaARTe, a sale showcasing the best Philippine crafts made locally from indigenous materials spanning a wide variety of items such as contemporary and antique jewelry, decorative and functional pottery, clay sculptures, glass and metal works, fashion accessories, and home accents. MaARTe hopes to raise funds for the National Museum of the Filipino People.

These events happen from Friday, October 21 to Sunday, October 23 at the Silverlens Gallery located at YMC Bldg. 2320 Pasong Tamo Ext. in Makati. For inquiries, contact Silverlens Gallery at (63 2) 816-0044, (63 917) 587-4011 or email:
