Friday, Oct. 4, 2013's Lowdown

Fact one: Plane tickets to Germany cost a lot of bread. Fact two: The gas to get you to Fortuna costs significantly less. Why do you care? Because Oktoberfest.

Humboldt Beer Week rolls on Friday night with a local, slightly less extravagant homage to the world's largest bender. Eel River Brewery will be serving a special German dinner with music in the beer garden by Guy Smith and the German Band and waitresses in their finest dirndls.

Remember to moderate for Humboldt's big day Saturday (and driving and stuff). Or there's less sudsy events in your Friday Lowdown below.
