Oktoberfest, Gladstone Hotel, Toronto, ON

Gord and I went to Oktoberfest at the Gladstone Hotel this evening.   Early bird tickets were $15 (it was $20 at the door).  We went last year and it was fun.

Dust off your lederhosen and ring in the fall at the Gladstone’s classic knee-slapping Oktoberfest jamboree.

We’re turning the Melody Bar into a good ole fashioned German beer hall, featuring live Polka, pretzels, bratwurst, and of course, steins of beer!

The Beer Barrel Band provided a variety of tunes until 9:30pm.  We got there about 6:30pm (it started at 6pm) and they were playing.

Tickets included your first 32 ounces of beer.

They sang Ein Prosit many times during the evening, encouraging everyone to drink.

Ein Prosit, ein Prosit
Der Gemütlichkeit
Ein Prosit, ein Prosit
Der Gemütlichkeit.

Here we are with our steins of beer.

It got busier as the night went on.

They gave out samples of Mill Street Oktoberfest beer.

The band played the Chicken Dance throughout the night.

Ulia, one of the servers, did it first
Later on, festive Anna took a turn
Tyler was volunteer by his friends at the end

It wasn't a dancing crowd, though.

It was a fun time and we'll be back next year!
