Prost! Celebrate LA Oktoberfest

Every year thousands of people flock to beer gardens to consume copious amounts of alcohol, gobble hearty German fare and celebrate with old time drinking songs. Yes, we’re talking about Oktoberfest.

Besides being one of two major drinking holidays, there’s more to Oktoberfest than just getting drunk. Oktoberfest, aka the “Largest Volksfest (People’s Fair) in the World,” got its start in Munich, Germany back in 1810 on October 18 to commemorate the marriage of King Ludwig I and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. A horse race was organized and nearly 200 years later, the 16-day festival has evolved into what it is today – one hell of a fun event.

Fortunately, you don’t have to live in Germany to partake in the Oktoberfest excitement. It’s time to break out the stein and put on your lederhosen, of course, assuming you own a pair. For years, cities around the world have reveled in the fun and now you can too.


The 2010 LA Oktoberfest offers Angelinos a chance to enjoy live music, folk dancing, German cuisine, wines and beer on October 9 and 10. The event will take place at the L.A. Mart located at 1933 S. Broadway, L.A., CA 90007 from 1pm-6pm.lucky


Attendees will get to enjoy authentic German costumes, authentic brews served in commemorative steins, delicious foods including bratwurst, sauerkraut, strudel and giant pretzels. What better way to kick off the festivities than with the “tapping of the keg ceremony.” Festival goers will definitely be entertained by the 25 member band – AMF, a Polka band, Bavarian dancers, aerial showgirls (a spectacular Aeiral and floor show by the best cirque du soleil ever had) and a silent auction by sporThings.

Tickets for the LA Oktoberfest can be purchased online or at the Vendome locations. Net proceeds benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater L.A. and the Ketchum-Downtown YMCA.

1. Admission $15 - Includes a 1/2 Liter Souvenir Glass Stein
2. Admission $20 - Includes a 1 Liter Souvenir Glass Stein
3. All Inclusive Tickets $75 - 1 Liter Souvenir Glass Stein, Included all day Drinking and Food.
4. VIP Tickets $100 - admission to Oktoberfest 1 hour before regular guests. 1 Liter Souvenir Glass Stein, Included all day Drinking and Food.

So, if you're up for a fun time filled with German brews and sausage, this event is your best bet.

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."

SUMMER FABRIC "INGREDIENTS"

They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content.
