    I was at the Andechs monastery just outside of Munich years ago and realized that I had lost my sunglasses as we sat down. I retraced my steps and searched for about 10 minutes before giving up and returning to eat and drink. A short while later, a child at another table noted to her parents how dark my beer was. I thought, hmm…maybe my glasses are in the beer.

    So I stuck my knife in the Masskrug and found something within. I hauled out my glasses, which has been fully hidden by the dark beer.

    Best memory is running around with friends (and making new friends) while wearing the chicken hats. The chicken hats rock! Looking forward to doing it again soon!

    about 3 hours into the drinking walked into the big tent near the back of the festival looking for that delicious brat and schnitzel combo i heard so much about. after i ordered i waited for my food and instead of focusing on how good it will be i couldn’t help, but keep wondering why everyone was yelling at each other. turns out they were yodeling….. hahahaha

  14. Steph G.

  21. fav memory has to be last year in London’s Oktoberfest in Shoreditch Park….huge group of us from the burlesque lounge went together (so of course, we’re all dressed like idiots and completely out of our heads), got absolutely pissed on hefeweizen’s…then our boss yells that she’ll pay 100pounds to the first person to run all the way down the table. two seconds later, 4 drunk italians are scrambling across the long wooden tables and we’re getting kicked out of the tent LOL we moved it outside (happen to be a gorgeous day in London…a rare one!) and drank on the grass untill we fell asleep ;P

  22. Amy

    I have not been yet because I could never find a babysitter for my kids, but my families history is extremely German and can’t wait for my boyfriend to wear a Lederhosen and me a sexy Dirndl dress while we sip out of our really ornate beer steins and eat some authentic German food with our friends!!

  23. Lorynn R.

    Pretzels the size of your head, beer, oh the costumes, and the weiner dogs! Who doesn’t love to watch weiner dogs run with their stubby little legs? So cute!
