Go home. You're drunk!
At noon on opening day of Oktoberfest, the Lord Mayor taps a Spaten barrel at the Schottenhamel Tent and shouts to a crowd of thousands “O’zapft is!” (It's tapped). After this ceremonial tapping all the tents are allowed to start selling beer and Oktoberfest has officially started. Having a ceremonial Oktoberfest barrel at your party adds an element of authenticity as well as a fun way to kick off your event.
Here is our much belated review of the 2014 Glendale Heights Oktoberfest, which we shamefully neglected to post last year. Spoiler alert: It’s rave! Kudos to Glendale Heights, Chef Wolfgang, and the gang at the Schnitzel Platz. We can’t wait to see what you have to offer this year.
