Tomorrow is the start of Oktoberfest in Munich; it's my favorite holiday! Who can't get behind a festival for beer, now, really?!
One day I'll get to Munich to see it, or even to Choctaw, Oklahoma, who puts on a pretty darn good festival:
Short of all that, I am planning to attend this years Oktoberfest at Barksdale Air Force base - the sixth year in a row. For six years Steve and I have been the first to come and the last to go at the BAFB celebration! Even better, it's for a great cause: Operation Bright Holiday, which brings airmen home for Christmas.
If you have base access, plan on attending. I promise, you'll have a great time!
