The Hofbrauhaus

Micah and I went to dinner at the Hofbrauhaus, the worlds most famous beer hall. This was the setting for the nororious meeting in which Hitler took control of the tiny German Workers Party in 1920. The picture on the bottom does not do the place justice but you can sort of make out the polka band playing along the wall. They say 4,500 beer drinkers can crowd in. The patrons often sing loudly and sway together while drinking HUGE mugs of beer. The top picture is of a cage like thing that the regular patrons keep their beer steins in so they dont have to carry them back and forth from the hall. This is just one, there were more! Great food. Time for bed. Micah is already out! Tomorrow we take a train to Bologna.
