News, but not the serious kind
What’s better than camping out drunk?
Congratulate me, Blog Guy! I’m going to Oktoberfest this year! It’s a life-long dream come true!
I‘m not totally sure, but I’m paying about $80 a night, so I’m guessing it will be very, very swanky. Maybe like a suite or something.
Ah. Yeah, I think I know the place, the ‘Wiesn camp’ at the Horse Stadium.
Pretty posh, huh?
Um, it’s 300 tents, holding four people each. So you drink beer all day long, then you crawl into your tent along with your three roomies and their tubas or whatever.
But there’s a private bathroom, right?
It depends on what you mean by “private” and by “bathroom.”
Ouch. Well, what if I’m willing to shell out a little more money. Is there an upgrade?
Sure. Feast your eyes on these colorful two-person Oktoberfest storage containers. Be sure to check out on time, though, because I think when Oktoberfest is over they seal them up and put them on a cargo ship bound for Yemen.
Holy crap! I’m disappointed. I expected better accommodations in Germany!
You’re kidding. You think you actually get to sleep in Germany?
