I headed to Sofitel a couple of days ago for a taste of next month's upcoming Oktoberfest. If this was even a slight indication of how much fun it's going to be, than count me in!
Imagine...ice- cold mugs of free-flowing beer, unlimited grilled sausages, cold cuts, cheese, traditional roasts and stews, live entertainment and the priceless camaraderie that only an event like this can bring.
Plus, it's all for a good cause too!
Organized by the German Club Manila, a hefty part of the proceeds will go to their numerous charity projects which have been active since it's founding in 1906.
Interested? Here's what to expect:
Aside from free-flowing beer and a feast greatly resembling those of the Vikings, there's also going to be live performances by the world famous original Hofbräuhaus Band and Show from the legendary Hofbräuhaus in Munich which was founded by the Duke of Bavaria in 1589!
Also watch out for internationally acclaimed female yodeller, Lissie, musicians and performers who will be doing the traditional folk dance of Bavarian Schuhplattler while playing on cow-bells and cracking their whips in tune to some Bavarian music.
It can't get any more authentic than this!
The Harbor Tent will be transformed into an authentic Biergarten (Beer Garden) with Oktoberfest tables and benches complete with ladies donned in dirndls and gentlemen in Lederhosen to add to the spirit of the festival.
Here's the 76th Oktoberfest 2014 menu:
