Oktoberfest and Gora Gora Orkestar

September 18, 2011

Having a damn fine weekend in Louisville. Friday I went to Oktoberfest downtown at the pavilion with a new friend Brenda. We drank Oskar Blues beers and had some street food while listening to the polka band and chatting up the locals. Today I ran a bunch of errands and had a yummy panera bread sandwich and some cinnamon crumb cake. Tonight I went back into downtown Louisville to enjoy the Gora Gora Orkestar. I sat in a bit for their second set, which was fun. They played the Star Wars Cantina song and some great 7/8 beats. I think Smithwick's is poised to become my favorite beer. It's really good.
