Oktoberfest by the Bay

A few weekends ago was Oktoberfest by the Bay in San Francisco.  Apparently, the official start of Oktoberfest is the third weekend of September and goes until the 1st Sunday of October.  This leads to the misconception that Oktoberfest is during the month of October.  Interestingly I was in west Germany during the last week of September last.  It is a big celebration in Bavaria which is a region in Germany (similar to how we have states here in the U.S.)

This was the 2nd time I’ve been to the Oktoberfestivities in SF.  This year they moved it to Pier 48 near AT&T park which was great because my friends and I were able to just take the CalTrain and not worry about parking or a designated driver.  It was the usual drunkeness with random strangers and even some sad attempts at dancing to German songs.  What a great night it was.
