It’s September, which means it’s Oktoberfest (at Maennerchor it’s the 16th through the 18th). So, celebrate. Do the chicken dance. Dust off the lederhosen. Drink a lot of beer (if you already drink a lot of beer, carry on). Most importantly, however, eat bratwurst, schnitzel, goulash and warm potato salad with vinegar and bacon. Y’know, German Potato salad. If you haven’t had Kassler Rippchen ($7.50) before, now is a great time to introduce yourself. The huge smoked pork loin triggers flavors in the sauerkraut that trigger flavors in the mashed potatoes that then trigger flavors in the smoked pork loin. It’s a flavor vortex that you may not believe is coming from German food. But, it is.
