I did some research and didn't see anything political or religious in this. I could see a caution to not drinking too much, but could we go to a restaurant that has that as a theme for the week?

Any from Europe - what council do you got on this one?

They are having a little "Oktoberfest" themed luncheon here. They do a different one every month - government work at its finest. Any way, I stay away from all the religious and political themed ones - 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Halloween, etc. I just go out for lunch that day.

But what do you think of this one?

Lots of beer............:bouncing:

Oktoberfest is an annual fall festival which takes place in Munich, Germany. It is associated with the consumption of large amounts of beer and traditional German foods, along with general merrymaking. With a few exceptions due to wars, Germans have celebrated Oktoberfest every year since 1810, although the early version of the event was dramatically different than the modern incarnation. Many communities with a large German population host their own versions of Oktoberfest every year, encouraging people to celebrate German heritage and join together in fellowship.

The first Oktoberfest was actually a horse race, held to celebrate the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig I and his wife Therese Saxe-Hildburghausen. The race was such a success that the Germans decided to repeat the event, adding a fair as well, and slowly but steadily, beer entered the mix, eventually becoming the major feature of Oktoberfest. The horse races were dropped in the middle of the 20th century, but it is still possible to purchase a wide range of crafts at the fair, when it happens at the same time as Oktoberfest.

Good call on not going to the work thing, but as for restaurants, I really like this burger: :eat::drool:

What a strange coincidence, I had a Oktoberfest burger at Red Robin just yesterday. I am paying for it today as the onions give my tummy fits but they are yummy. We also had a one foot high pillar of onion rings to share between four of us. Very crispy and delicious.
