Beer and Brats

We are having an Oddtoberfest at the Lodge at our Potluck meeting. The Lodge is treating us to delicious Dittmer's sausages, sauerkraut, German pickles and a selection of good bier, including some possible home crafted bier! I am going to provide German potato salad and red cabbage and we ask members who can, to bring their favorite Oktoberfest dish. Soy protein substitutes will be offered for our vegan/vegetarian members and guests. Former member turned brewmeister, Jessie Ferraris, will introduce us to his own label, Redwood Coast Cider (located in San Carlos), his new business with former member Gabe Lucas. They produce traditional Basque-style ciders in a variety of flavors. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be provided. Of course, we cannot forget dessert! Victoria Woodrow will bring our October birthday cake in the appropriate flavor of German Chocolate Cake. Now that you've heard all of this, how can you resist? But wait...there's more!

You can't have a proper Oktoberfest without music and dancing! Local resident Nina Nelson, trained singer and pianist, has offered to come make our Baby Grand sing in German! She and her husband, Charles, will be our guests and Nina would love to lead us in song. There may even be some sheet music for you to follow. Here's your chance to learn a little German while you enjoy the fest.

Remember that our monthly social meeting, our Potluck dinner, is an opportunity to introduce your family and friends to our Lodge and its members. It is a more relaxed time, focused on fellowship and enjoying each others company. It is a perfect setting to make new friends...and possible new, active members! So put on your dirndl or your lederhosen, pack up your favorite dish to share, fine tune that rich baritone or soprano singing voice of yours and bring your favorite bier mug! PROST!

In FL&T,
Sandy Gleichmann, Warden
