There’s no need to wait until Oktoberfest, or go to Helen to get your fix of German food and German beer. You can do that in Atlanta this weekend – AND buy a pretzel necklace too! There will be food, music, German snacks and, of course, beer! I am not a big beer drinker myself, but I am a fan of German beer after hanging out at Oktoberfest last year. I’m such a fan that I’m tempted to go to this event, but I need to be assured there will be polka music or it’s just not the same. Another cool bonus? If you are going to be the DD for the evening, and you register online BEFORE the event, you get in free! And while being the designated driver might seem like a drag, just think about how funny it is to watch drunken people – that’s your real reward!
