Start Oktoberfest a Little Early

I had no idea, but I just read that both Old World in Huntington Beach and the Phoenix Club in Anaheim kicked off their Oktoberfest celebrations this weekend, even though it is still rather obviously September, with yet another week to go. Apparently September sucks so bad that they are just choosing to ignore it completely. So even if you missed the inaugural oom-pah-pah night, since when was the fact that it was Sunday prevent you from having a good time? What is work but just that inconvenient thing that pops up five or so days a week?

Throw on some lederhosen if you dare, order a pitcher or four, and get up on that stage to show the world your best chicken dance. You know you want to. Don’t let all that practicing in the mirror go to waste.

    Despite the name, Oktoberfest traditionally starts in September. Anyone have an opinion on which place is better?

    Some Guy, I was chastised by my husband as well for not knowing that Oktoberfest began in September.

    He said that any self-respecting beer lover would know that, and is it my fault that I prefer fruity, slushy drinks? Next time, I’ll be sure to check with him before I post anything on beer.

    I have heard from various sources that the one at the Phoenix Club is a more “authentic” experience, but what exactly that entails, I’m not sure.
