Lederhosen, lager, Lincoln Square: Must be the North Side hamlet’s German Day Festival (a.k.a. Oktoberfest). Our photographer caught folks midpolka on Friday, the first night of the weekend-long fest, before heading inside the neighborhood tavern Huettenbar (4721 N. Lincoln Ave.; 773-561-2507) for more beer and Gemütlichkeit (a.k.a. goodwill).
