The A La Carte committee is gearing up for the inaugural Junior League of San Diego Oktoberfest this Saturday at Quality Social.
To get everyone ready, let’s all learn a little Oktoberfest “lingo”:
Mingga: Munich, the birthplace of Oktoberfest
die Blaskapelle: brass band
der Käse: cheese
die Brezel: pretzel
die Würste: sausage
das Bier: beer
Biddscheen: please or you’re welcome
das Dirndl: traditional female Bavarian costume
Liederhose: leather trousers
Ein Bier, bitte: “one beer, please.”
Das Boot: Das Boot is both the name of a german submarine movie and also the name of a traditional beer drinking glass. The glass holds 2 liters of beer, or in some cases 2 liters with room for foam (3 liters to the rim). It is the final drinking contest in Oktoberfest and also featured in the movie “beerfest”. Literally translated it means “the boat” or in the context of the drinking glass “the boot”. Credit goes to urbandictionary.com
You can get a pair of tickets for just $60 in advance, but don’t wait as tickets are limited and will increase to $40 per person at the door. Guests are encouraged to wear traditional Oktoberfest attire (dirndls and lederhosen). The best dressed couple will be crowned Mr. & Mrs. Oktoberfest by our special guest, Nathan Fast, from 93.3. You can also show off your strength in our Beer Stein holding competition. The winner will receive not only a fabulous prize, but huge bragging rights to boot!
This is an event you won’t want to miss!!!
