    Just want to say how great Oktoberfest was yesterday. Not only was the weather perfect, and the band oompah-ing, but the food was delish and the deal was fantastic. For $10, you got a paper boat of food that included: your choice of knockwurst or bratwurst or a pulled pork sandwich; a potato pancake, with or without bacon; saurkraut; a super sour pickle spear; your choice of rye or pumpernickel bread; and an assortment of condiments like mustard, sour cream, applesauce, hot sauce, etc. The $10 also included a beer, and they had a great selection going. Subsequent beers were $5 each.

    The sausages were great, and came from the Smokehouse in Roxbury. The pretzels ($2 each) were huge and were finished over the hardwood grill. Yummy.

    This was the first time Redbones has done an Oktoberfest, and yesterday they said it looks good for a reprise next year, and perhaps something regularly scheduled next summer with a similar physical set-up. It was a nice place to spend the afternoon. I hope they keep this up.
