I swear I could see the sign from Highway 512. It called to me, like a beacon through a dense fog.
Welcome to Oktoberfest at the Puyallup Fair.
I didn't imbibe – hey, I'm on company time – but managed to dig into a bratwurst ($7) from Mount Angel Sausage Company. My first impression was that it just seemed heavy for such a food. And it was mighty tasty. It had spices but didn't knock you over the head with them.
And I needed something to wash it down with, so I went to the Root Beer Garden. (Cute name, eh?) For $3.50, I got a souvenir stein full of the tasty stuff.
Speaking of stuff, I'm stuffed after all of this.
