The main gate to Oktoberfest, where we spent the next two days
While there we met the rock band the Bloodhound Gang who were being interviewed by MTV while they were at our table.  I went with another student from UW Whitewater, Matt, who is second from the left.
Picture of a couple of the large beer tents there.  If you didn't arrive by 11am you had almost no chance of getting a seat in any of the almost 15 tents.  And without a seat, you don't get served.
