    Stuart,

    “Oktoberfest – „O’zapft is!“

    It may be called “Oktoberfest,” but the big event starts in September. It all began with a wedding—in October 1810. On the 12th day of October that year, Crown Prince Ludwig (later King Ludwig I of Bavaria) wed Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen and held a big party near Munich (München). It was so popular, that the party (complete with horse racing) took place again the following year, prompting the start of a traditional German celebration that has become world famous. Other than for interruptions caused by war or disease, Oktoberfest has been celebrated every year since 1811. The massive Bavarian Volksfest begins each year on a Saturday in September and ends 16-18 days later (usually) on the first Sunday in October. (For 2006 the dates are September 16 to October 3 — 18 days. 2007: Sept. 22 – Oct. 7 — 16 days.) Because October 3 is a national holiday in Germany, Oktoberfest is extended if Unity Day falls after the first Sunday in October, making Oktoberfest vary from 16 to 18 days in length.”

    Pomai,
    Need to explain to all of your followers, who are not as Oktoberfest experienced as I am, what O’ Zapft is means…………this is what the Burgermeister (Mayor) of Muenchen declares when he officially opens the festivities by tapping the first keg. It literally means “It Is Tapped!”……….and the ritual then repeats itself in every tent that serves beer.
    And…………some tents hold up to 12,000 people!
    Prosit der Gemuetlichkeit,
    Wally….veteran of 8 REAL Oktoberfests!

    @ Keith-San – I’m also hoping they’ll have those German staples included in the buffet. Especially with the Sauerbraten! I’ll be attending the Hawaii Prince Hotel Oktoberfest tomorrow night, and will report here with full coverage soon after. :-)

    @ Kona Wally – That would be a great name for a German heavy metal band: “Zapft Ips”. Actually any German word makes for a great heavy metal band name. The language sounds inherently blunt and aggressive. Zicke, zacke, zicke, zacke, hoi, hoi, hoi!

    @ Ward – Dōitashimashite. Err, I mean, Bitte schön. See you tomorrow night! ;-)
