1 September 2014. From the Russian Web: Now, Here’s a New Meaning for “B & B”

00 Abu Simbel bayan and balalaika. 01.09.14

______________________________

It’s time to smile awhile… “B & B”… what’s that you say? Why, it means “bayan (Russian button accordion) and balalaika”… two of the main ingredients for a good old-timey old-school veseliya. Add some blini, kolbasa chock fulla garlic, smoked salmon n’ sour cream, with hot tea and cold vodka… now, that spells P – A – R – T – Y!

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).
