Note from the editor: If you are reading this after September 24-25, 2011, then the Urban Chestnut Oktoberfest is OBVIOUSLY not THIS weekend. You missed it. And we feel bad that you did. The only way you would be able to experience the awesomeness that happened would be if you had a time machine, and you could go back, like Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future.
So read on, but don’t be trying to show up for some German oompah music in February. You have been warned.
ADDITIONAL note from the editor: Have you invented a working time machine? Then contact us here. I’d like to talk to my 17-year-old self about revising some embarrassing incidents from high school.
Now, where were we? Ah, yes, Oktoberfest in September! Which really isn’t that odd, since the original Oktoberfest in Munich has always taken place from late September until early October. For their inaugural Oktoberfest UCBC will have German food, German music, and of course German bier.
Brewmaster Florian, born and raised in Germany, will be on hand to make sure everything is authentic. We suggest you be there to have a good time, and to see if he is wearing lederhosen!
Marketing28 worked with UCBC to design banners, posters, and t-shirts. You can see a more detailed schedule on their blog. Stop by and say “Hello!” at the festival. We’d love to see you there!
