Just the thought of Betrunken nude ...

... gives me pause. I prefer this view of Englischer Garden:

When in Rome



I have come to the wonderful decision last night, after a few beers, to take excursion to and partake in the nude sunbathing in the Englischer Garten. It is something that is way out of character for me but I figure “What the hell, why not!!”… A nice way to spend the morning getting over a hangover and it would be the easiest thing to pack for. This is the plan anyway, I still may come up short on this adventure...

Oktoberfest beer prices to crack €9-mark

A litre of beer will for the first time top €9 at this year’s Oktoberfest, continuing a steady march upward in prices at the legendary Munich festival, the city announced on Tuesday.

Well, I think the German public would be more upset if they first converted there dollars into pennies and then bought a beer...]

This is the link to the above storie..

Delta Upgrade for $80

Spent the extra $80 to upgrade to Comfort Class on Delta flight to AMS. Figured that I would need the rest before arriving. Free snacks... yum. Unfortunately, these are recently upgraded airliners, so SeatGuru doesn't have the configuration.

Happy Monday Everyone

Another Potential Oktoberfestian

Hopefully he will decide soon, but our good friend John "The B-Man" might make it. B-Man is not only our friend, and local radio celebrity (http://www.wtue.com/pages/BMAN.html) but also my son's father-in-law; what a connection !

Changes at Oktoberfest

Went looking for information on Oktoberfest and found this
(I am looking forward to seeing the last one listed!!)

2010 saw a lot of changes at the Oktoberfest.
The Winzerer Fahndl tent is new and the largest ever with a central serving area and beer pumped directly from the brewery
The Augustiner tent has a tower for the first time in decades
The Hippodrom has a new balcony
The waitresses in the Braurosl have new dirndls

I know, it's Bud LIght......

But it is a great commercial anyway. Wouldn't you just love this App on your phone?

First signs of life??

Is that the beginning of tent build up I see on the Wizen?

S-Ban to the Fest?

Do you guys usually take the S-Ban to the Fest or walk from the Alfa? And if you walk, how long does it take? Thanks...
