R5 Teutonic Tallies

It’s the time of year for Oktoberfest, the annual 17-day festival celebrating Bavarian culture held in Munich, Germany. It’s where celebrants wish each other grisinagott (good day) over würstel (sausages), schweinsbraten (roast pork), brezel (pretzels), and massive steins of beer. In honor of the celebration, then, here’s a count of a few things German in Westchester (no David Hasselhoff concerts though—sorry!)
