Ah, Oktoberfest. How I love it. A lucky few of My Public experienced a San Francisco Oktoberfest chez charvey a few years ago. A good time was had by all.
I don't have time for a long post tonight, but suffice it to say the the Vietnamese *love* Oktoberfest. Good times, good times.
I yelled out "Ein, zwei, drei" and the band leader finished with "zuppa!" (or something that sounded like that). I got a huge kick out of it. The German drinking culture rocks. This band also sang 1950s American do-wop songs as well as the Deutsch boozing favorites.
Two cherubic patrons get into Teutonic party mode. I was walking by and saw these guys posing for a photographer's picture so I snapped one too. I think the right word for their expression is "beatific."
