Oktoberfest Update!

 Last night my brother and I went to a local restaurant for an authentic German Meal!  The food was all prepared in house and even the sausages were homemade.  It was something I had never had before but pretty good and different. I took lots of pictures to show. :)


Here are the highlights:
**I got to spend time with my brother and eat something I had never had before.
**We went to one of my favorite restaurants so I knew I would like the wine :) 
**The food was amazing! 
**Adam seemed to enjoy it too!

Downfalls:
**You sit with people you don't know because they serve the food family style.  This wouldn't be a huge problem if you had a group of friends together and you all went.  That would be fun but I felt like I had to be on my best behavior and didn't get to talk to Adam as much as I want.
**I sat next to the MOST pretentious woman ever! She knew everything about EVERYTHING.  I wanted to punch her in the throat before it was all said and done!
**It was way more expensive than I thought it was going to be.  What I thought would be $40 a person with food and drink included only included ONE drink.  So my bill ended up being about $140 for us including tax and tip...

On to the pictures :) 
We had an accordion player throughout the whole meal.  It was kinda interesting and he really got everyone involved.  Adam really liked that!
This was what we were served for the meal!
And of course this is the seasonal drink section...Adam had the Newcastle Werewolf.  I just stuck with the house Cab :)

This couple actually started Oktoberfest in our little town.  They of course were very German and I couldn't understand much of what they said but they were very nice. 

The next few pictures are a lot of dancing :)

 I honestly do not remember what everything was but my favorite was the Brat and the Brussel Sprouts :)
 
The dessert was a yummy apple dish that I am going to try to learn to make for my pampered chef party this weekend.  And of course I had to take a picture of what I had left over from dinner! 


It was about 9 when we left our German experience and Adam and I both were needing a little taste of home so we went to our local bar/grill for a nightcap!
 
Adam had the BudLight and I stick with my Mic Ultra :) We were the only ones in there so I took a goofy picture :) 

All in all it was a good night :)
