Oktoberfest

September 18, 2010

So I know it’s still September but apparently Denver doesn’t care because it holds it’s annual beer festival, Oktoberfest, during the last two weeks of September.  Confusing if you ask me!

We headed out with the roomies + our friend Bryan for a night of beer, German music and schnietzel… okay, so no one actually ate a schnietzel but I was on a mission to find out exactly what it was.  It was a fun end to my Friday but before I get ahead of myself let’s start back at the beginning of Friday.

I was in the mood for overnight oats.  Well, an overnight oats + banana soft serve parfait to be exact.

I added half a peach to my BSS and it was oh.so.good.

Cancelled class = two hour lunch break = picking up Udi’s for a Friday lunch treat with Beanie

Japanese Noodle Bowl Salads really hit the spot.  Except that I was hungry about 2 hours later…

It came with 3 pieces of yummy and crusty Udi’s bread.  I ate one piece and saved the other 2 + Beanie’s other 2 to eat with the clam chowder we’re making tonight 🙂

One dance class later and I was officially on weekend time.  A weekend which will include homemade peanut butter making

It also included a much needed massage.  Ahhh, the benefits of massage therapist parents!

Although I was expecting to leave with my hair looking like this!!

I was forced to take a shower so all my friends wouldn’t be so embarrassed to be seen with my hair me.

We took our chances on finding something to eat at a German themed festival.  I was crossing my fingers that they’d have something other than bratwurst.  Or anything meat-filled for that matter.

**Turns out a schnitzel is a boneless pork cutlet, coated in breadcrumbs and fried.  I think I’ll pass :(**

Hannah, Bryan and I got free camo hats for sampling the Twisted Tea.  It was actually pretty good!

I, of course, had to get some sweet potato fries.  Can you believe no one else liked them?!

Joey and I shared the only meat-free meal I could find.  The gyro stand had vegetarian AND vegan options, say what?!  Our gyro had tofu, tzatziki, greens, tomatoes, feta and kalamata olives.  Messy, but delicious.

We came across a stand with LOTS of different kinds of nuts.  I think the guy was a little weirded out when I asked to take a picture.  Hannah got a mixed bag and I tried chocolate covered almonds and cinnamon almonds, both were so good!

We headed home with free t-shirts, hats, buckets, necklaces…

Like I said, a fun way to end a Friday night 🙂

Ever been to a beer festival?

    I’ve never been to a beer festival – I’m always so jealous of how your parents are massage therapists. I need one so bad. My back hurts so bad!

    I was having the same thoughts about September and Oktoberfest this weekend. I’m glad someone else is confused by it too!
