Frau Chugger ?????

Dario Diaz & Aram Guluzian Confirmed - Part II

Come on Oktoberfestians, overwhelm our newbies with information, insights, guidance, and down right worthless information.  They are looking to you to guide them to the promised land.  Show your sainthood, manliness and Oktoberfest expertise.  Try your damndest to make them say one of the following:
  1. What gods these Oktoberfestians are, I aspire to their alter of bierness.
  2. What a bunch of drunks.
Sometime in October will will survey the newbies to see the true answer.

Great Beer Commercial

While not Germany or Oktoberfest related, it is indeed about beer.

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Let's remember...

It’s been a cold and snowy winter day here in Dayton, so I thought maybe it was time to challenge the Oktoberfestians. Hopefully this challenge can jog some lost memories and humor us all. The challenge is to remind us of a classic Oktoberfest moment that may have been lost in time.

There is only one rule/caveat; you cannot reference one of the all time moments that have gone done in Oktoberfest history. As the initiator of this topic, I declare the following top 5 events to be forever enshrined in our Oktoberfest hall of fame, and not available for discussion:


  1. Iwicki Stair Diving
  2. Tuna Fish Pizza
  3. Assisted ATM Withdrawal
  4. Bush Full of Barf
  5. Rang’s Woody

For those of you that experienced these events, just enjoy the memory. For those that have no clue, maybe a future topic will explore these classics.


So, who will go first?

In Retrospect...

How did we manage a successful trip in 1993 without the Internet and this Blog?

What do we do in Amsterdam?

I have never been to Amsterdam, so I am wondering, what does one do there. Tripadvisor has many fun options, like bike tours, Anne Frank house, and boat tours. There also seems to be a cool walking tour of WWII sites. Is there beer there? I hope Barbus does not make us play tennis.

Barbus, what say you?
