The Grunauer family is in an Oktoberfest state of mind

Nicholas Grunauer has big patio plans this weekend

The Oktoberfest festivities don’t officially kick off at the Grunauer Restaurant in the Crossroads until 4 p.m. Friday, but the tent over the patio will be erected early that morning so that chef-owner Peter Grunauer, son Nicholas and daughter Elizabeth can begin arranging the long communal tables.

“We’re hoping to be able to seat at least 150 people on the patio,” says Nicholas Grunauer, “and the bands.”
