In Munich, Germany people have already said “O’zapft is” (“The beer is tapped”). In Germany Oktoberfest started on September 20th and lasts until October 5th. So it is time for women to dress in their “Dirndl” and for men to put on their leather shorts. See for yourself, the following picture shows one of the crowded beer tents this year!
