“I’m NEVER going to drink that much EVER again”… how many times have we all heard that one? Don’t worry… I’ve got the aspirin, coffee, Rolaids, and sympathy… I’ve been there… I’ve prayed to the Great Goddess Commodia more than once in my time…

It’s a beer marathon! This weekend Mayor Christian Ude of München opened the first keg of beer with the traditional “O’zapft is!” (“It’s uncorked, now!”). Every year, this ritual starts Oktoberfest, the world’s largest beer festival. This year, it’s the 180th such party in the Bavarian capital. For 16 days, the partiers will guzzle special Oktoberfest beer in litre mugs served by buxom barmaids. This time around, there’s some ouch… the beer went up in price from 9.40 Euros (410 Roubles. 12.75 USD. 13.10 CAD. 13.65 AUD. 7.90 UK Pounds) per stein to 9.85 Euros (430 Roubles. 13.35 USD. 13.75 CAD. 14.30 AUD. 8.25 UK Pounds).
