Oktoberfest Starts Today. Yes, That's Right. Today!
Oktoberfest starts today. Yes, in the middle of September. But are you going to quibble the details when we're talking about the only time of year when public drunkenness and enjoying polka music are socially acceptable?
Both can be accomplished this weekend, thanks to the Phoenix Club of Anaheim, who are hosting their annual Oktoberfest starting tonight. It will continue for every weekend until the end of October.
There will be Bavarian schuhplattler (dancing) complete with lederhosen and dirndl dresses, along with beer, German food, beer, a big tent, and beer.
But only tonight, September 19th at 6:00 PM, will the admission be free.
If you come Saturday (also starts at 6:00 PM), admission will be $10.00 for the general public ($5.00 for Phoenix Club members). Same with Sunday, except the thing will last all day and there will be a pig roasted on a spit.
Sounds like fun for everyone, except for the pig, who will be a little tied up.

P.S. If wine and gourmet food's more your thing, Taste of Newport is also this weekend.
