**Group Meeting Location: For the new wine lovers, the group will meet at 1:30 at the Posidon Statue (aka Awakening)**
German's take pride in there beer and wine, so why not enjoy the fruits of thier labors at the Das Best Oktoberfest in National Harbor, voted one of the top ten Oktoberfest events in the US for the last two years. While it's not München, it's the closest we can get without a 9hr flight! Rain or shine! Is that a schnitzel I smell?!?!?!?!?
Just like the 20s & 30s Wine Lovers did for previous National Harbor events, if anyone wants to park at my house (just 2 miles away) and take taxi there and back, the option is there! This is the best DESIGNATED DRIVER option after drinking much of the day. Perhaps we'll have a small gathering at the house afterward...that's TBD...
Metro bound? We can work out some options from the King Street Metro!
Interested? RIGHT NOW TIX ARE ON SALE at the drinkeatrelax website (just $57, they will go up to at least $80+ the closer to the event we get!!!!)
Get your tickets for Saturday at http://www.drinkeatrelax.com/tickets/das-best-oktoberfest/das-best-oktoberfest-washington-dc-september-22-23/das-best-oktober (Advanced Ticket Sales will close at 5pm on the Wednesday before the event or 9/21/11 or when sold out...it's ALL WILL CALL). We HIGHLY recommend you get the VIP tickets!
All The Show Features Are Under Cover- so Rain or Shine- you are totally wunderbar! As you enter the show, you’ll receive a souvenir tasting mug and 6 beer tokens. (VIP is unlimited drinks) For those who like to drink more, you are welcome to purchase more tokens ($1 each), just drink responsibly. There is nothing worse than a professional person (dressed in a German outfit) slurring their words as they sing drinking songs! (HENCE THE TAXI!)
There will be lots of the best International Beers and Wines and lots of Oompah bands to enjoy your favorite German drinking songs. You can also enjoy the sausages, potato cakes, sour beef, schnitzel and other great German classics!
Other great Festival foods will be there, as well. If the food and the drinks aren’t enough then go to the Main Stage and enjoy the great music. Or check out the Oompah Bands on the German Stage.
