GREENE - A German-themed food and beer experience mixed with live classic 80’s rock-and-roll music is coming to Greene in early October thanks to the efforts of Patocka’s Gastropub.

Patocka’s is co-owned and operated by Alexandra Howe and Gary G. Parker Jr., and is located at 62 Genesee St. in the Village of Greene. The restaurant is scheduled to host several themed events including Rock-tober Fest from 4 to 9 p.m. on October 14th, and a wild game and whiskey pairing event on November 12th.

According to Parker, Patocka’s opened on December 7th in 2022, and both owners greatly appreciate all of the support they have received in their first year.

Parker said Rock-tober Fest will feature a selection of authentic German beer and food, with the highlight of the night being a live performance from the band Razzor. He said Patocka’s usually sells out within a few days of announcing their events, and individuals interested in placing a reservation for the event can call them directly at (607) 875-0485.

“We will celebrate our first year open in a few months, and we really appreciate all of the support the community has shown us,” said Parker. “It took serious planning to get to this point, but in the beginning I met with my daughter and asked her if she would be interested in opening a restaurant and she said yes.”
