241--California: Oktoberfest, How Funky is Your Chicken Dance?
@ CherieSpotting     Oct 10 2004 - 09:22 PST
cherie writes: If you don't want to travel 6,000 miles to Germany's Oktoberfest, come to Old World, Huntington Beach.

Oktoberfest celebrations are not all created equal. In Munich, 6.5 million people celebrate Oktoberfest by drinking 5.8 million liters of beer over 16 days.

Here in California the Oktoberfest festival is 3 times as long--from Sept. 12th to Oct. 30th. Old World's celebration has bratwurst, sauerkraut, potato salad, pretzels and apple strudel...and of course, plenty of German beer.

They also have a full-sized yellow chicken to lead the "chicken dance" and an imported band from Austria. And for those with big muscles and big livers there are the beer stein holding and beer drinking contests.

Us Californians may not drink as much beer as the Germans, but we have just as much fun.
