October has just arrived and although many people are planning their Halloween costumes or thinking about how they are going to carve their pumpkin, I am sitting in anticipation of one of my favorite events in St. Louis: Oktoberfest.
I have this friend named Kathy. Well, she’s been in and out of relationships for as long as I’ve known her and we’ve been friends since high school. One day I get this email, she’s getting married. OK, this is Kathy’s fourth marriage and I’m concerned. True I haven’t seen her for a few years and even though we’ve kept in touch she’s never mentioned this guy. Now she’s going to marry him?
Half Moon Bay will be having its annual Pumpkin festival on October 16 and 17, 2010. This event features carnivals, slides, pumpkin patches, gifts, a pumpkin weigh-in. The happyramadankareem.com features a wide assortment of food and artisans and their wares. The festival takes up much of Main Street in Half Moon Bay.

The brewery itself sits smack dab in the middle of the restauant. It’s four huge shiny fermentation tanks are easily viewable from all area of the restaurant.
Leaving here hungry isn’t an option either; traditional Bavarian fare served at the festival includes Bratwurst sandwiches, Schweinshaxe Dinners (for those of you who are not fluent, it means Pork knuckles), and potato pancakes, all sided with German potato salad and sauerkraut. If you have a little room left over after dinner and drink, satisfy your sweet tooth with either German or apple strudel.
