It's Here! It's Here!

Guten Morgen! It's finally here! No, not Talk Like A Pirate Day! Even better than that... OKTOBERFEST!!!

Today at noon (5 am CT), Munich mayor Christian Ude will tap the first barrel of beer, and officially open Oktoberfest with the announcement, "O'zapft Is!!!" (It's tapped!)

I think I'm setting the alarm, slamming a dopplebock, and going back to bed.

Seriously, within five years... I'm there.

Talk Like a Pirate Day. Only OTHER place I have heard that was while listening to the radio show Bob and Tom. You don't by chance listen to them too, do you?? LOL

I'll go with you. I've been to lots of fake ones here in the states, even a really big one in Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, but I'd love to see the REAL thing. I speak zero German, so I can't help you there...
