When did you go Doc?Doc said:The 170th Munich Oktoberfest started at the weekend.
Wishing I was there I was checking out the pictures and stuff from the site.
Ah the memories.
MUNICH, Germany (Wireless Flash) -- Folks around Munich, Germany, are warming up their beer bellies in anticipation of this year's Oktoberfest, which kicks off Saturday (Sep. 18).
The 16-day celebration of beer, bratwurst and brouhahas commemorates the 1810 wedding of Bavarian prince Ludwig I, and takes place on the grounds of that five-day festival.
According to the honchos at Paulaner beer -- one of the six brews served at the first Oktoberfest -- more than 6 million people will attend this year's festival, guzzling nine million liters of beer.
That's enough suds to fill 65,963 bathtubs.
Twelve-thousand workers -- including stein-slinging waitresses -- will labor to serve guests at 14 tents which hold up to 10,000 people.
It may sound strange to hold an Oktoberfest in September, but organizers do this to guarantee that chilly weather doesn't spoil the buzz for the revelers.
