• I have no idea how a town can have an Oktoberfest festival without a considerable amount of thirst-quenching suds, so there you go.

The town of 14,000 had something ridiculous called an “autumn prohibition” which prevented alcohol from being served, but not any longer. Said chairman of the Oktoberfest committee, Ernest Hauk: “I think once people get over being worried about who’s going to see them drinking … it will just grow and grow.” You think? [msnbc]
