Yes, they’re calling it “Rocktoberfest,” but your cringing will come to a screeching halt when you don your lederhosen, hoist your beer stein (or plastic cup) and revel in the Oktoberfest mayhem at the no-holds-barred block party slated for O’Sheas on Oct. 9.

Thank you, stock photography, for helping us avoid having to take a picture of "Weisswuerschte" ourselves. Whatever that might actually be.

No block party at O’Sheas would be complete without tempting drink specials, made even more special as they’ll be delivered by dirndl-clad bar maids in honor of Oktoberfest. Yes, “dirndl.” We looked it up.

Get $4 draft beer, $5 cans of Heineken, specially-priced beer tubs, and a full bar featuring that ever-so-popular party accelerator, Jagermeister. (Which is German, of course. Ah, the circularity of the universe.)

Bonus Jagermeister trivia: Jagermeister means, literally, “hunt-master.” Curt Mast, Jagermeister’s inventor, was an avid hunter.

The block party at O’Sheas runs from 3:00 p.m. to midnight. Games of beer pong and corn hole (don’t ask) will ensure the German-themed celebration is punctuated with copious amounts of trash talk. Oh, in the name of all that’s holy, don’t make us link to the American Cornhole Association. Let’s stay on-topic.

Radio station KOMP 92.3 FM will begin broadcasts from the block party at 3:00 p.m. and continue throughout the evening.

Live entertainment is scheduled throughout the day, including Sick Puppies at 9:00 p.m. The alt rock band features vocalist and guitarist Shimon Moore, bassist Emma Anzai and drummer Mark Goodwin. Their hit, “All the Same,” is awesome, by the way. Take a listen.

It should be noted that while the Sick Puppies are not, technically, German (they’re Australian), we’re thinking that when you’re into your third “beer tub,” you’re not really going to care all that much. Please tub responsibly, by the way.

Even if you hate loud music, come to “Rocktoberfest,” anyway. It’ll be wunderbar to have an excuse to say words like “Schweinsbraten,” “Steckerlfisch” and the aforementioned “Weisswuerschte” in mixed company.

Bonus Oktoberfest factoid: At the real Oktoberfest, in Munich, the event begins with a 12-gun salute and the cry of, “O’ zapft is!” (“It’s tapped!”)
