One moment, you'll be having dinner with your grandmother; the next, you'll be standing on the benches railing shots with your grandfather.

No one seems to have any idea whose birthday it is.
The accordion player ad libs "Cheeseburger in Paradise" to "Bratwurst in Paradise;" the crowd does not hesitate to join in.

1. Hofbräuhaus Cleveland 1550 Chester Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114

Mirrored after the centuries-old beer hall in Munich, Cleveland's Hofbräuhaus is a microbrewery that serves oversized liters of German beer and large portions of Bavarian cuisine in its 400-person capacity space. Having your stein delivered by the lederhosen-clad waitstaff is part of the Hofbräuhaus experience, as is indulging in shots of Jagermeister and watching the place transition from a jovial daytime drinking destination to a rowdy live music nightspot. No matter the time of day, copious amounts of the Hofbräu original lager, Bavarian sausages, and fresh-baked hot pretzels keep the energy flowing.
