Staying Connected During 'The Fest'

Barley Man, Barbus and I will try our best to keep everyone up to date with the activities of this year's Oktoberfestians as best we can.  Since we are so connected these days, we might need to have a few Maß to keep things straight.

The Interwebs will be bustling with activity next week. 

Prost !

Albert Einstein

Did you know... Albert Einstein once worked at the Schottenhamel tent at Oktoberfest as an electrician.

I wonder how many  steins he consumed.

Training includes breakfast, too.

Paulaner Girl and I ventured to a local place that is German Focused...  Tip Top Meats and European Deli.  Excellent sausage in the morning,  then had pork chops for dinner.

I believe my I am sufficiently ready for a week
in Germany.
