This year’s event benefits the Optimist Clubs of Tucson, www.optimist.org.

With their upbeat attitude, Optimist Club members help empower young people to be the best that they can be.”
Tucson Oktoberfest (www.tucsonoktoberfest.org) is in its 9th year at Hi Corbett, and has on its website the music schedule for each day, and a list of the food available. Tonight we listened to the opening German music by the Hofbräuhaus Band (with dancing), then the U of A Tuba Cats, followed by the Saguaro Strutters. Great entertainment for the entire family.
And the bratwurst/sauerkraut, German potato salad, and lemonade were terrific. A friend of mine enjoyed the beer, for only $4 at the beer booth.
When you drink your St. Pauli Girl imported German beer, don’t forget to raise the cup (mug) and say “Prost!”
