Cheers to happy vibes this month
Guys, just because Octoberfest is cancelled, there’s no reason why you can’t still be part of this annual German tradition. Time to break out the lederhosen and dirndls and host your own Oktoberfest party at home! Set up a beer tent in your garden, hang a few blue and white banners, stock up on German beers and serve pretzels, sausages like bratwurst or knackwurst, eisbein, roast chicken, potato salad or sauerkraut. It’s not a party without the perfect playlist. Add some authenticity to the mix by playing Ein Prosit to get everyone in a happy mood… To end your shindig on a sweet note, we suggest you whip up a batch of apple strudel. Head to our website, getitmagazine.co.za for more tips and recipe. Wunderbar!
