I’ve always wondered what it would be like to actually go and experience the real Oktoberfest first hand. I’ve been to a few autumn gatherings in Alexandria and DC in the last several years where they serve many different kinds of delicious beers and all kinds of sausage related food- but now that I have gone to Oktoberfest in Munich I think I have reached beer festival enlightenment.
Mike’s parents “coincidentally” visited us here in Brussels during the Oktoberfest window of celebration and they invited us to join them in Munich for the weekend to celebrate his step-dad’s birthday. How could we say no? And a celebration, it was.
notice how I tied my apron to the right which means “hands off fellas- I’m taken!” (tying it to the left means you are single and ready to mingle and tied in the center means you’re a virgin!
Mike’s Step-Dad & Mom, getting into the spirit!
look in the dead center of this photo and you will see our group raising our beers to Mike taking our photo from above
Mike seems to be getting tipsy…
or perhaps even drunk…
Ok maybe I was getting drunk too… but that’s all part of the fun of Oktoberfest! In my next post I’ll share more photos of what I wore to this giant beer fest- although no promises they turned out too great, we took them at the end of the day after many a beer was consumed.
