I've always heard about Oktoberfest and have always wanted to attend an event despite the fact that I'm not a huge beer drinker.
However, my BF is a big fan of beer. I got us tickets off of Living Social for the New Bohemia 2nd Annual Oktoberfest for $30 each. It included all you can drink beer and a $20 credit for Uber for safe transportation to and from the event.
I would definitely not go to the event again. When we entered they put a wrist band on us. However, we were not allowed to leave the event. The food options were limited and as usual over-priced. There were only porter potties available. There were long waits for everything. This wouldn't have been a big issue if we were allowed to leave and come back to the event, we had already paid and their actually restaurant was just a few feet away. It would have been nice to be able to go to the event and go use the bathroom in the restaurant or if they provided water as well. The no entry was complete crap.
They also had other activities there such as life-size jenga, bean bag toss, and keg bowl. Most of the events were too crowded and busy to even play. There were about 12 different kinds of beer on tap. If you are a beer lover and could drink your money's worth in beer. It could have possibly been fun for you. There was also a decent DJ at the event. The event also lasted for a long time from 12 pm to 12 am on Saturday.
Overall, I was too sober and uncomfortable from the event. However, I was pretty impressed and amazed with UBER cab.
