The 21st Annual Mercedes Club Oktoberfest was again a great success! The tradition started in 1994 the month after TGA opened for business, and soon evolved from tech sessions to the consistently, most attended event of the local club chapter.
We enjoyed Oktoberfest brass music, German food traditionally catered by Chef Johann Schuster from Charivari Restaurant, featuring Schweinshaxen (Pork Shanks) with Beer Sauce, Knoedels, (Bread Dumplings) and Sauerkraut, and apple strudel with vanilla sauce for dessert. Bill Coates from Spec’s conducted a fun filled Beer Tasting, where many learned about different brews that they will buy in the future. Like every year, excellent door prizes were given away to the attendants in a random drawing that was held at the end of the event. We’re looking forward to continuing the tradition in October 2014.
