Weekend review: Oktoberfest

As previously predicted, this weekend was a busy one when it came to my October adventures and overall 2013 goals. I finished my last hands-on animal behavior certification course and enjoyed bevvies at Reston’s Oktoberfest with a few friends.

It all started at a wine happy hour on Tuesday when one of my friends mentioned the Oktoberfest happening out in Reston. The other friend we were with just so happens to live out that way and since it’s often hard to coerce people that “far” out of the city, we all jumped on it. It seemed like a good idea to get out and explore, plus cross off another October adventure. It was an all-day event, but I think the rain kept most people away and since I was in class until 5, we didn’t actually head out until 7 or so. But that was plenty of time to explore the food vendors and try some new ales. There were even a few cover bands including 2U, a not-so-well disguised U2 cover band. Surprised, right?

All in all, it was a fun night out with friends. It took us a little while to get going as the crowd was an interesting mix of people, but it was definitely fun all the same. The cover bands were good, but it was the crowd that provided the entertainment. You never know who you’ll find in Reston.

I didn’t get too many pics of the bands or the scene, but I did snap a few with the girls.


On the left is Janet – we’ve been friends since college (has it really been 10 years?) and on the right is Sandra. We’ve been friends for 2 years or so, but she’s good people; I’m sure I’ll be snapping a pic with her 8 years from now and saying…oh, 10 years already?

So that’s Oktoberfest off the list, here’s what I have left:

  • MLK Jr. Memorial
  • Botanical Gardens
  • Theodore Roosevelt Island
  • American History Museum
  • National Arboretum
  • Pick fruit from a local orchard (planned for 10/20)
  • Oktoberfest

Let’s hope the government shutdown ends soon so I can knock out the arboretum and botanical gardens next Saturday!
