I'm not a beer lover, I can't stand crowds and find the idea of Dublin adopting German traditions a bit confusing. Still, out of curiosity and peer pressure, I've skipped a few Culture Night-related events (much to my regret) and found myself surrounded by pretzels, Haribo stalls, overpriced pints and tacky Bavarian clichés - Dublin Docklands never looked so festive. You know me, I couldn't say no to good old bratwurst and tempting käsekrainer - I'm a sucker for sausages even though these two were quite underwhelming. It reminded me of that time in Manchester when I had a Cumberland sausage that tasted like Fairy. How didn't I see the rip off coming? This very Dubliner Oktoberfest did not impress me: even live music was shit but I've made an effort to stay and entertain myself since my friends seemed to be having a great time. It was fun but I wouldn't return. A bit like a one night stand, really.
