Do they make life jackets that fit bratwurst?  I’m busy preparing for my big boat ride this afternoon out on Lake Michigan with the Chicago Convention and Tourism Bureau and realized this bun of mine does not float.  Thankfully my bun can keep me warm today while I’m out on the water, now I just gotta make sure it can keep me safe too.

Before I head out for the big adventure, I wanted to make sure I invited you all to a special event tonight at The Berghoff Restaurant…The Tapping of the Keg.  Tonight from 5 to 7 p.m., Berghoff will celebrate the one week countdown with the official Oktoberfest kick-off: The Tapping of the Oktoberfest Brew keg.  And yes, I will be making a special appearance, so trust me you will want to be there!   That’s not all though, we will also be featuring:

  • Oktoberfest samples and mini bite pairings
  • Meet Berghoff Beer Brew Master Gary Luther
  • Beer Specials
  • Raffle for Cubs and Bears Tickets

Well I’m off to perfect my sea legs, I’ll see you all tonight!
