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.

Saturday was a proper evening out! Continue reading

I’m a total baby when it comes to scary things, but my imagination demands to be scared once in a while since it it BRILLIANT for one’s writing. You can’t only expose yourself to happy, sunshiney things if you want to improve your creativity. You must run the gamut. Who else is excited and terrified for this new show?
