Saddle the chickens, we’re riding out.

Through some fortuitous and entirely accidental timing (at least on my part), it appears I’ll have my first visit to my company’s European office in Munich in September. I will be there for a week, starting September 12.

Oktoberfest begins the Saturday of that week, September 17.

As Bob Dylan once wrote, “I can’t help it if I’m lucky.”

There is more information about the festival at Wikipedia, including descriptions of the traditional menu and a pointer to information about the traditional beer style of the event, Märzen.
