The German Feast

Yesterday afternoon, we attended a German Fest, a “Biergartenfest” organized by the “Tourist Club” in Oakland. Since we didn't own a a pair of lederhosen or a dirndl, we came as we were, in jeans and t-shirts, our daughter and her boyfriend came along and this made for a really fun afternoon.

There was a good live band, a group of dancers who all performer folk dances in the traditional garb, good bradwurst and polish sausages, some good desserts and of course German beer! While only some of us danced the polka (this was never was my forte) we indulged in the chicken danse, which by our own assessment, we performed very well and enjoyed a great lot!
