oktoberfest bayern munich lederhosen

Here’s an 1860 Munich player with a small dog. Yes, that’s really all we found – even after putting a call-to-action out to the Army.

Few events on the annual social calendar arouse us like Oktoberfest does. Ladies Day at Aintree, the end of season bubba parade(s) and so forth. So considering this, you can probably imagine the anguish we felt upon searching our photo agencies’ inventory and only finding hundreds of Mr & Mrs Franck Ribery pics.

Obvi we’ll try and keep have an eye on this space but are doubtful any pictorial miracles will come of it. What a shameful waste of Guinness and lederhosen if you ask us.
