Munich (aka Munchen) is famous for their OKTOBERFEST celebrations, but honestly the party continues ALL YEAR LONG. The great thing here is that everyone is FRIENDLY, and when I say everyone - even KIDS with the APPLE BEER are trying to get in on the conversation.
Every block has a beer garden, so you wait in line for your beer, find yourself a seat at the community tables and then 'PROST' the people next to you. This type of drinking provides major people watching too.
Since I was alone, my strategy was to single out the old guys in traditional German clothes as company. These old guys have the best stories, and I know if they get weird on me I could probably take them on, or at least out run them. Is that bad?
