To be honest, I can’t think of anything wrong with Oktoberfest.
Unless you hate drinking beer, dancing, meeting new friends, and eating hearty warrior-fueling dishes, you need to get yourself to this blessed tradition and partake. Our venue this year? Beethoven Mannerchor in Southtown. Get after it San Antonio!
Beer. Let’s start with the most important building block of any successful Saturday night.
But I’m not talking about your average six-pack and chill. No, the standard at Oktoberfest is to drink your weight in beer. And then drink your friend’s weight in beer after. Just look at this.
Ein bier, bitte! It’s just one…famous last words at this gathering of mad polka dancers.
Now we weren’t completely irresponsible, we soaked up some of the alcoholic nectar of the gods with solid carbs and meat. Pretzels, potato pancakes, Rueben sandwiches, leberkase, goulash…we ran the gamut.
And when the traditional band vacated the floor, the dancing began. All ages, all levels of drunk, combining into one glorious display of mad dancing skills. And of course the chicken dance.
Did I lie? Absolutely nothing wrong with this dignified tradition.

What a magnificent day! Waking up this morning feels like ages ago with how many adventures we packed into the day!
What’s the best way to celebrate America on the 4th of July? Camping!
A few months ago, my father came up with a plan to visit several national parks on a family road trip of sorts. I flew from my home in San Antonio to meet him, my mother, and sister in Portland, OR.
Hello again, delightful fellow bloggers and lovers of adventure!
There is almost nothing I love more than a walkable city!
We woke up early to do some proper exploring, and first on our list? Chinatown.
Well I didn’t go to Disney World like I had originally planned, but a trade was made…east coast for west!
As my main bear, Winnie the Pooh, would say….It’s quite the blustery day!
That being so, I put on my coziest “man-flannel” oversized shirt, forced my cat to cuddle with me all morning, and have warmed my soul with coffee and Steinbeck.
But it got me thinking about my “rainy day essentials,” like cats and men’s shirts. Thought I’d put some Gloomy Weather Links up for you fine folks.
