There is one more Oktoberfest event happening in town and this is probably the biggest as well, spanning two days next weekend.

      I love beer. I do. It’s true. I cannot lie. In fact, I’m planning on heading to Munich next year to attend the festivities so this event would provide some much needed training on etiquette, food choices, etc. Did I mention that I love beer?

      We were looking for something to do next weekend, this could be perfect.

      Beer is so much more fun than wine. I think it was Oliver Reed, the great besotted British actor, who said you meet the finest quality of people in a pub.
