Oktoberfest this Saturday!

Anyone else have any big Oktoberfest plans this weekend? This saturday marks the first day of Oktoberfest for those who don't know.

I've got a keg of Paulaner Oktoberfest Marzen, gonna be cookin up German food all day and have all the proper german glassware set for the day

Only thing I'm missing is a 2 Liter Glass boot, everywhere is sold out, I'm quite upset about that.

Re: Oktoberfest this Saturday!

why do they call it Oktoberfest in september or does it have nothing to do with it being October.

Re: Oktoberfest this Saturday!

Werd for google

Quote:
Oktoberfest is a two-week festival held each year in Munich, Bavaria, Germany during late September and early October. It is one of the most famous events in the city and the world's largest fair, with some six million people attending every year. Other cities across the world also hold fairs, modeled after the Munich event, also called Oktoberfest.

The event takes place during the 15 days before the first Sunday in October and usually ends on that Sunday, making the entire fesival 16 days. The festival has traditionally ended on the first Sunday of October, but if this day is the 1st or 2nd, the festival will go on until the October 3rd (German Unity Day). Thus, the festival is 17 days when the 1st Sunday is Ocober 2nd and 18 days when it is October 1st. The festival is held on an area named the Theresienwiese, often called "d' Wiesn" for short. Beer plays a central role in the fair, with every festival beginning with a keg of beer tapped by the Mayor of Munich who declares "O'zapft is!" (Bavarian for "It's tapped!"). A special Oktoberfest beer is brewed for the occasion, which is slightly darker and stronger, in both taste and alcohol. It is served in a one-liter-tankard called Maß. The first "mass" is served to the Bavarian Minister-President. Only local Munich breweries are allowed to serve this beer in a Bierzelt (beer tent) which is large enough for thousands.

Visitors also consume large quantities of food, most of it traditional hearty fare such as sausage, hendl (chicken), käsespätzle (cheese noodles), and sauerkraut, along with such Bavarian delicacies as roast ox tails.

bluemustang already posted some info but here's some more

It actually starts in September and goes into Oktober. The history behind it is that back in the 15th and 16th centuries, they didn't brew beer as much in summer months because it didn't turn out well.

Oktoberfest was a celebration where the old stocks of beer from March were drank in celebration before the new harvest when new beer would be brewed.

Be sure to post when its close. I have quite a list of some good drinking games, some of which are kinda physical challenges which would fit in well with your olympics.

You stack 3 cans of beer on top of each other with a colo cup on top.

kinda like Beirut you shoot a ping pong ball into the cup. If you hit it the person on the other team has to chug the first beer under the cup before they can shoot. First person to hit 3 times wins. Well everyone wins cuz you get drunk.

Zim, lemme know if you play differently.

Thats how we play... we do teams, and its a relay though.... so theres 2 stacks of 3 beers, with a solo cup on top full of beer. You make that, drink the beer, refill it with the beer stacked underneath the cup, rotate with your partner to throw, and start all over. Basically, each person on your team chuggs 2 beers in a matter of a couple minutes.
