    This Week in Vienna

     / July 24, 2016
          • How do we select our top events for the week? We're glad you asked …
            We use a highly intricate and complex, super secret algorithm that would baffle even the techheads at Facebook, involving a combination of the following three factors ... and a squirt of mustard:

            1. From first-hand experience
            2. The event's Facebook popularity
            3. From your (our audience's) feedback 

            What's that? You have a tip for an event happening next week? Well, you can meet us at the back of the building behind the green with the statue of Peter Pan on top in the 9th district in that dark alley to hand it over, or you could just let us know on Facebook, or leave a comment below!
            Vienna Würstelstand's  says:
