Oktoberfest 2009 – 1st night early

Troy & i went to Oktoberfest for a couple of hours last year, but didn’t really feel like we had a proper Oktoberfest experience.  He had gone with the office, and had a good time, but we really wanted to go with friends & be able to really enjoy ourselves.  So last April, Troy made reservations for a table, and all we could get was a Sunday night in the Paulaner tent.   Sunday nights usually aren’t the best for drinking parties, but we thought it would still be fun. 

Then, on Friday Brehan & Caro invited us to a table in the Hofbrau tent (American & Aussie party central!) for Saturday night.  So we dressed in tracht (traditional clothing – thanks Caro!) and managed to do Oktoberfest 2 nights in a row.  This (Monday) morning was tough…
