Pre Ohio State Tailgate: Oktoberfest 2017!!! High calorie food, heavy beer & sweet liquor to lessen the pain??
Festmeister here. I am looking forward to a treat this Saturday as the Big10 gods have granted us a 730pm kickoff which means optimal tailgate conditions. The weather is looking iffy, with some potential afternoon rain, in addition with cooler temperatures at night (which is much welcomed in my opinion after miserable sauna like conditions for Morgan State).
Oktoberfest is on the menu for our tailgate, and as Bill mentioned in his blog, I will assume the role as point man. I will handle the majority of the food, so folks can just chip in cash. Here is what I am planning to bring:
-Beer bratwursts, rolls, beer & butter onions, sauerkraut, mustard
-Tray of sauerbraten with option to serve on potato rolls.
-Tray of German spaetzle (potato pasta pan fried in butter) with side of gravy
-German cucumber salad
-Bottles of Jagermeister, Barenjager, Asbach Uralt brandy
-Table, German decorations
If other can divvy up the following (if wanted)
-German potato salad (I can also order from German restaurant)
-Potato pancakes w/sour cream & apple sauce. (I can also order from German restaurant)
-Beer, some German selection would be nice!
-Utensils, plates, napkins, etc.
Can't wait to celebrate my favorite time of the year with my good friends! Prost!!
