154--California: Oktoberfest, HB style
@ CherieSpotting     Sep 28 2003 - 15:02 PST
cherie writes: Since we couldn't make it to Munich this year for Oktoberfest, we decided to celebrate the biggest beer festival in the world in Huntington Beach, California.

Greg put on his lederhosen (which means leather trousers in German) but sadly they were made of felt since we rented the lederhosen from a costume shop.

I dressed up like a German girl, we grabbed some friends and prepared to drink and eat as many pretzels as we could.

5.9 Million people visited Oktoberfest in Munich 2002. There wasn't quite that many people at Old World, but the place was packed.

Out of the five choices of beer, only two of them were German beers. When we walked in, the band was playing Ricky Martin and we saw people gulping their malted beverages out of plastic cups. Other than that, it was quite similar to being in Munich--lots of beer, people, beer, dancing, beer and fun. (And more beer!)
