WurstFest is the Best Fest!

When Wursting, it’s important to get there early. Don’t end up like me and drive in after dark. You will just end up sitting in bumper to bumper downtown traffic trying to park. Once the sun sets, there is no time to waste people! There is Oktoberfest to be poured, polkas to be danced, and lederhosen to be worn.

Seedy motels are a must. Our poison of choice this year was America’s Best Value Inn. Straight class, this place. A shuttle leaves from the La Quinta next door but I couldn’t wait around for an hour by the time I got there, so I drove. Annoying yes, but it ended up being the best choice in the end. New Braunfels is a teeny town and cabs are not what you would call…plentiful.

A note to all you AT&T customers – you will have no cell phone service once you walk through the gates. Zero. Which is fine, until someone rips their lederhosen.

Texas can be chilly this time of year so it’s best to stay inside the big tents where the bands are playing. Grab a table to set your multiple plastic WurstFest pitchers on, stand on the chairs, and dance! It’s so easy a baby could do it.

free entrance ticket - thank you friends in high places!

I want all of you to know, there are two kinds of girls:

girls that roll with koozies

and girls that don’t

    Everything about this screams “yes” to me. Yes to wurst, beer, Texas nights and that amazing looking band! Love it.

    You should try GermanFest next year – it’s in Muenster Texas and is a smaller, albeit in my opinion better option for a similar fun beer, polka, and sausage filled spectacular. First weekend in October every year (I think.)
