Oktoberfest Kicks Off Today

Oktoberfest kicked off today. Here’s an article on Oktoberfest from a magazine for American troops — some of whom were on the 9 am “drunk bus” to get prime tables at the big tents in Munich.

It didn’t really occur to me at the time, but there were a lot of American servicemen in Bavaria when we were there last. ┬áThat’s probably now one of the characteristic features of Oktoberfest.

Paris Hilton, however, is banned.
