To celebrate its one-year-anniversary, Caboose Commons is hosting an Oktoberfest in Merrifield on Saturday (Sept. 21).

Two families founded Caboose Brewing in 2013 — operating Caboose Tavern in Vienna — and opened Caboose Commons in Merrifield last fall.

The beer garden and coffee house regularly hosts events like dog-friendly happy hours and fitness classes.

The free event will feature the new Oktoberfest Marzen brew, Lone Oak Coffee, German food and live music by Cory Campbell and Jon Cresswell. People will be able to purchase food and drink tickets.

Attendees can also enjoy games like cornhole, life-size chess and life-size beer pong.

The event will run from noon-7 p.m. at 2918 Eskridge Road.

On the last day of school, my family got invited to an awesome block party put on by 4 neighbors on a cul-de-sac in Vienna.

They had bounce houses, food trucks, music and everyone had an awesome time. The adults got to talk, be social and have beer while the kids got to run around and play for hours like I remember doing in my own childhood. The road was blocked off officially by white and orange barricades. It was a great afternoon.

With just a little paperwork you can throw a block party like that one and really get to know your neighbors, or hang out with your friends and help create memories for your family.

Temporary use permits/applications are required whenever you want to block part of a road. Here are some rules and helpful links to get you started:

Town of Vienna

  • Requires an application with at least 21 days in advance of the event.
  • Requires a signed petition by 100% of the affected neighbors.
  • Event must conclude by 11 p.m.
  • Download the full application here.

Vienna, Oakton and McLean (Fairfax County)

  • Requires a “Temporary Special Permit.”
  • Must be submitted at least 6 weeks in advance of the event date.
  • A detailed list of where, what, who, when and how.

Falls Church City

  • Will only be granted a 4 hour window for the party.
  • Requires a notice/invitation be sent to any resident on the block impacted at least 7 days in advance of the event.

Here is the live music line-up:

The summer block parties are from 6:30-9:30 p.m. every third Friday this summer.

The food truck list for this Friday has nearly a dozen vendors, including:

While blankets and lawn chairs are welcome, alcohol not purchased at the party and pets are not.
