Hey All! You've reached Part 2 of my Oktoberfest post!
• Wear closed toe shoes. Think about it. Drunk people everywhere. You choose: Broken toes from all the stumbling or accidental projectile puke all over your new sandals🙊 Not saying it'll happen but prevention is key.
• If you don't drink beer, that's totally ok! I understand it's not for everyone. Wine is just as good! Hey, I love wine just as much as the next girl but order a Radler (half beer/half lemonade) & you'll eventually turn into a beer drinker.
• Guys: Wear a Lederhosen. Trust me, you'll bag all the chicks. There's something sexy about a man who can unapologetically rock a German-inspired romper. 😏 Own it! If anyone tells you differently, leave them to drink alone. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
• Ladies: I just want to state that all you women SLAY in those traditional dresses. Y'all are bomb.com. However, I cannot stress this enough but please make sure if you're wearing a Dirndl that you have some type of undergarment on underneath... I have seen some things that have scarred me for life.
• Bring several hair ties. You're gonna need it. For yourself, for your friend or the completely wasted girl you just met in the bathroom who is somehow your new BFF. Apparently, you both are going "running" in the AM.
• If you're a person who absolutely hates large, overpopulated tourist places or dislike people in general, Oktoberfest is probably not the place for you. You'll be shoulder to shoulder inside the tents, restaurants & even the bathrooms. But if you're willing to accept it, take a deep breath, sip a beer & let the live band singing classic 80's music relax you.
• Most visitors would suggest you make a reservation beforehand because the tables are always full. I mean totally - but I always find cheers-ing with a rando to be more effective. They'll almost always invite you into their group. Chances are - they're freaking cool people.
