Oktoberfest 2013

Best Oktoberfest yet

For the first time in three years, Beau’s Oktoberfest didn’t involve umbrellas, windbreakers or the need to wear gloves to protect against a cold stein of beer. The sun was out in all of its glory, making our job all the more fun.

We set up shop on Friday afternoon, grateful, once again, for the great weather and Beau’s hospitality. This year we not only had “Nice Pits” t-shirts for sale but six different posters, designed by Maker, depicting great women in history who, in our opinion, exemplify the qualities we Mavens strive for: passion, strength, tenacity, courage, endurance and leadership.

As usual, there was a delicious line up of local and Ottawa-based restaurants serving scrumptious food all weekend. We had our fill of warm pretzels and mustard and of course, Beau’s fine beer! One of the highlights had to be the Barley Mow pierogie poutine with Oktoberfest saussage.


Barley Mow’s pierogie poutine with St. Albert cheese curds, gravy, and Oktoberfest saussage. Delicious!

Amie and I will be off to Toronto October 18 to attend Rethink’s Booby U fundraiser bash. This is the hottest young philanthropic event of the year in the Tdot and we’re thrilled to be a part of it. The Booby U dress code asks us to channel our inner uni student just one last time. We asked the ladies of August May Styling to put together four academic outfits via Polyvore for us. Vote for your fave look for me and Amie to wear on the big night. Like the outfit posts on Facebook here. The winning looks will be announced October 15.

Here’s more style inspiration from Rethink’s Booby U Pinterest page.
