Oktoberfest means two things: beer and potato pancakes. The line outside of Zum Schneider's in the Lower East Side was offensively long but we somehow scored a table outside after not too long. We ordered the potato pancakes and a vegetarian plate.
I know I know, What is German food without sausage? But I was in the company of a vegetarian, who I always insensitively tempt with meat, plus we were headed to another restaurant right after, so I didn't want to fill up too much ... on food that is. I drank a liter of Spaten which was bigger than my head and the rest of the night and much of the next day was history.
This is how I looked with beer goggles.
This is how my German date looked. Cute, eh?

German food without sausages is like Italian food without pasta. To hell with these annoying vegetarians. They need to get a life.

Pizzablogger, what are you trying to say? Please in English, next time.

Mr. Galatioto, I am too busy "getting a life" to worry about using grammatically or contextually correct Inglese, capiche?

Besides, I was tongue and cheek joking at your barb.

This discussion would be better continued over a bowl of home made pasta. I just cut down the basil plants for the season and have about 60 packed cups worth of basil leaves. Certainly plenty to make enough pesto (mortar and pestle method of course)to go around....
