This weekend in NYC is all about savoring the last bit of warm(ish) weather and kicking off Oktoberfest. See below for some options that will have you craving a huge mug of German brew, and a bottomless brunch for a hair-of-the-dog kind of Sunday.

All Weekend Long

Oktoberfest started last week, and the celebration is still going strong. We recommend hitting up NYC's best German beer halls from today until the first week of October. A few favorites to raise that gigantic glass include Radegast Hall & Biergarten in Williamsburg, Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden in Astoria and Zum Schneider in the East Village. Lederhosen optional.

Saturday and Sunday

Celebrate the final weeks of outdoor brunching in the McKittrick Hotel's gorgeous garden at Gallow Green in Chelsea. The return of Harvest Brunch is complete with live music, sweet and savory unlimited brunch buffet and the best part: bottomless brunch cocktails. 542 West 27th St.
