We hit the streets today, Frank, Doug and I, and ventured out into the neighborhood to rub elbows with locals and not-so-locals and immerse ourselves in beer, brats and sunshine. Oktoberfest in Ocean Beach I’m sure is like no other.


We talked to lots of folks, a young man toting his young baby on his chest, vendors, volunteers – people from all walks of life and everyone had a smile to share.

We met old friends and people who share our sentiments and our sense of spirit.

Obama, balloons, Bratwurst, Buñuelos, a bit of Bavaria at the beach and the boys in blue…..

What happened to the booze ban? I guess when you put up a fence and charge admission it doesn’t count.

Wonderful photos ! great job, Patty and Doug. You guys must have restricted the beer and brats enough to get this assignment done successfully.

So much for the beer ban.

I only stumbled onto your newsletter when a friend sent me an email re: the Octoberfest and there was a great picture of her and her husband in your picture section. Finally – someplace to go and read the views of people that think in the same vein as I do. I am going to spread the word – not just in OB but all over. It is wonderful to know that others feel the same way!
