…and the hardest I’ve laughed in a long, long time.
Berg, which is a bierfest that takes place in Erlangen (where I lived!), was even better than Oktoberfest. I didn’t particularly care for Oktoberfest, it being insanely overcrowded and, if we’re being honest, downright frightening at times, so Berg was the perfect, low-key alternative for me. I went with my fellow Franken Fulbrighters and, as we arrived a bit early, we were able to claim the perfect table in one of the outdoor biergartens – conveniently situated within earshot of the German band playing American oldies (our favorites being John Denver’s ‘Country Road’, The Stealer’s Wheel ‘Stuck in the Middle with You’ and Van Morrison’s ‘Brown Eyed Girl’).
….because sometimes you just wanna eat a giant pretzel, you know?
