Oktoberfest is celebrated

Re: Food & Drink, Oct.11-17

I was delighted to see an article about Oktoberfest until I got to the line “though cities across the world celebrate Oktoberfest, Victoria, oddly, isn’t one of them.”┬áVictoria most certainly does celebrate Oktoberfest! The Edelweiss Club, located in James Bay, is your friendly neighbourhood German heritage club. Every October, they open their doors to the public for four or five evenings of live music, folk dance performances, silly contests, authentic and delicious cuisine, and, of course, beer. Prosit!
