Hi again, it’s Herman here.  Now that I’ve spent a couple days in Chicago and am over my jet lag (courtesy of American Airlines), I thought I’d share a couple Oktoberfest details.  Oktoberfest guests have the chance to escape to one of the world’s finest luxury resorts thanks to American Airlines (pick me, pick me!).  Raffle tickets ($20 each or 2 for $25) for a luxury weekend vacation for two to the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, Dana Point, California will be available for purchase September 14-16.

Rules, rules, rules: winner must be present and the drawing will be on Friday September 16, 2011.  For official rules, restrictions or to purchase tickets go to www.mercyhome.org.  My favorite part of the Oktoberfest Raffle is that it benefits a fantastic children’s charity, Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.  Dedicated to providing a solution for at-risk children in Chicago, Mercy Home helps pave a way for the future of this city!  Don’t worry, there will be even more raffle prizes sold at Oktoberfest so there are plenty of opportunities to win.

Fingers crossed, a  brat can dream.  Prost.
