Whenever I hear about a festival dedicated to beer and traditional German food and entertainment, you better believe I will be there. In fact, in the last two years I’ve visited more Oktoberfest festivals than I care to admit….but that’s not the point! Since I’ve become a professional Oktoberfest connoisseur, I will share with you three Oktoberfest tips I wish someone would have told me before chugging down beer after beer. Here they are:
Tip #1: Get to Oktoberfest EARLY: Since many of our guests tend to get here around 8 p.m., traffic can get pretty nasty around that time. In addition to waiting in heavy traffic, you’ll also have to wait a bit to walk through the security gate. I don’t know about you, but I would so much rather use the time wasted to wait at the actual event for the rest of my friends – with a beer in my hand, of course! Arriving early to Oktoberfest not only guarantees you’ll get the seats of your choice, but it also means you’ll feel a tad happier by the time you and your friend reunite.
Tip #2: Eat Something After Every 2-3 drinks: Waking up with a headache from drinking too much is one of the worst things someone could go through! This is why I urge all of you to eat plenty of food when you come visit us. I’m sure you all know this, but when you are drinking 32 oz beers that fill you up, you can easily forget to eat. Some of the foods we have at this event include: bratwurst, knockwurst, sweet corn, German potato pancakes, potato salad, pretzels, pickles and King Taco! Also, don’t forget to drink plenty of water. Repeat after me: “Water and food are my friends!”
Tip #3: Don’t Be Shy: If your family or friends are lagging and don’t want to come with you, just come to Oktoberfest alone. J Sure, it may feel a bit weird at first, but you have to remember you are here to have a good time and to take a break from the daily routine. Plus, you never know who you’ll meet here. You can run into an old friend or meet a really cool group of people and drink together for the rest of the evening. The possibilities are endless.
- Bring Cash – You never know when you’re going to need it.
- Take lots of pictures and get social with us by tagging us on social media. Our official hashtag is: #OktoberfestLA.
- If you know you will drink a lot, use Uber or make sure a family member or friend can get you home safely.
- Do not bring valuables.
- Forget about everything and just have FUN!
If you have a chance to swing by this weekend or next, do so! You won’t regret it. The ambiance is groups of friends, families (no minors, of course!) and couples!
