I know a fair number of you guys do Oktoberfest parties, and as I'm planning on doing one myself this year I was wondering what you usually do. I am going to do Haxn, bretzel, weisswurst and Spätzle or knodle (not decided on that yet). Also for beer, I will hopefully be doing a lager but am also getting ~50 liters of Paulander and Brooklyn Oktoberfests, and perhaps some schanpps. I want to hire a band if I can, but I don't even know what that type of band is called - German Brass Band? Oompah band? Otherwise I'll just get some stuff from iTunes.
What about y'all, what sort of food, music, beer etc? Games? Stuff for the kids?
