St. Patty's Day is about the parties. Oktoberfest is about the food, German and Bavarian beer, and the culture. If you like sausage, speaking strictly in terms of food, you'll be more than happy at a local mock Oktoberfest, and even moreso at the real one across the Atlantic.

Was it La Crosse or Eau Claire that had the big Oktober fest riots?? I thought that the school was not allowing any more celebrations..

Try Eisbien -- its a smoked ham hock that is boiled in pork stock.. Heaven!!!! With a little suerbraten and Weisbier... now I am drooling...

It is interesting to note that Octoberfest is a Bavarian custom. When I lived in the former east (Magdeburg) they had never heard of Octoberfest. Not that they needed any reason to have a fest... Men's day is the best.. Legal drunkeness and stupidity. Kinda like a state sponsored frat party!

Hell yes! I went last year and I got so drunk. And ate tons of germen meat. I felt like I didn't know who I was and I was really really fat.

Yeah we had a riot a few years ago. I dont know if was Octoberfest related though. It was on amazing police videos. That was sweet.
