Oktoberfest is a scam - Next year, you're forewarned: caveat emptor!

So it happens these guys decide to rent a parking lot downtown, charge a $60 "all inclusive" admission fee. Here's what you get:

1) an around the block waiting line à la Kogi truck that doesn't move. Total wait time to the front, let me guess, 3 hrs? Why it doesn't move? Read 4) below.

2) an almost empty parking lot with a couple tents showing some tchotchkes, a few pathetic lederhosen trägern paid attendants, an even pathetiker band of Musikanten.

3) Beer, I guess. Not a specially good one. Assuming you can drink it from those unmanageable plastic boots or the really thick and heavy one-liters.

4) After the 3 hrs external line, another internal line of just 1 hr wait for the single food stand. The real reason, I guess, why you'd only allow one half person in every 5 minutes, that's the only way to avoid a riot.

My group of 6 left really pissed off. Somebody should sue these Oktoberscammers.
