Oktoberfest Again – Days 1 & 2
Apparently we really like Oktoberfest … so this September we went back to Munich, for one last hurrah. Our first night there we checked into our hotel and then wandered into downtown to check out the scene and get some dinner. I love the main square …
We walked around for a bit with no real destination in mind … just checking out the lights and the stores and the people.
We settled on a random restaurant that looked cozy and had a table. The restaurant served only Augstiner beer – so I picked a normal beer & Ryan went with a dunkel.
We ordered some German classics and just relaxed. I’m a huge fan of anything dumpling-like with anything sauce-like.
Our first morning at Oktoberfest was at the Augustiner tent – where we started with pretzels … and beer … ’cause that’s what happens when you sit at a table. They bring you beer.
We spent most of the day at the Augustiner tent, but eventually we decided we’d head out and go somewhere else…
The Paulaner tent was a really happening party every time we went by, unfortunately we could never actually get in. But we had fun outside too. :) Actually, I had fun, but Ryan fell asleep with his head on the table.
I ordered Kasespaetzle – which is like german macaroni and cheese. and It. Was. Awesome. It came with onions mixed in, but also crispy onions on top. I may have eaten it at every oktoberfest tent after this … but I’m pretty sure this was the best.
It was a full day … apparently it wore Ryan out. ;-)
