On Friday, October 14, Force Support Squadron hosted Oktoberfest at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling (JBAB). The event was rescheduled from Sept 30, due to remnants of hurricane Ian.
Coming off the heels of a successful Crab Feast, JBAB FSS put together another amazing event.
Patrons and customers piled onto the deck at Slip Inn to enjoy authentic German food, live entertainment, and of course fresh Deutsch beer.
The food was homemade, authentic and reasonably priced. A bratwurst with sauerkraut, German potato salad and a soft pretzel cost only $10. A 16 oz Spaten beer was only $5.
Mike Surratt and The Continentals performed Oktoberfest classics from I Salute You to Country Roads. John Denver is still huge in Europe and even bigger at Oktoberfest as country roads take you home.
The highlight of the party was the Bavarian Costume Contest where men, women and couples donned their dirndls and laced up their lederhosen.
Can’t wait for Karaoke at the Slip this Wednesday as well as Trunk or Treat also at the Slip Inn on Saturday, October 29th.
