Celebrate Germany with brats and beer at the San Diego Museum of Man’s October edition of Tower After Hours. Delight in the fun of Oktoberfest at a vibrant cultural festival chock full of traditional food tastings, samplings from the La Jolla Brew House, and spectacular performances by local artists.

Tickets: $10 members, $15 students and military, $20 non-members. Includes entrance to SDMoM, food tastings, beverages, and cultural entertainment.

Purchase tickets here.

Want to avoid the parking hassle at Balboa Park for this event? You’re in luck! SDMoM has partnered with our friends over at Uber, the luxury on-demand car service, to provide discounted rides for the big night! Uber will drop you off at the Museum of Man steps so there’s no need to hassle with a cab or parking at Balboa Park. Drink responsibly, and let Uber do the driving for you! The first 50 people to purchase TAH Germany tickets will get a special code emailed to them (by SDMoM), good for $80 off a round-trip ride to and from the event.



Sign up for an account here or through the app store. Please note, when you sign up for Uber you will need to put a credit or debit card on file. Don’t worry! You won’t be charged unless you ride. The app is a free download!
