It wouldn’t be Cincinnati without a little German flair! And with more breweries than I can count on my two hands, it wouldn’t be Cincinnati without a good beer. This weekend, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati brings all the best things about Cincinnati together. America’s Largest Oktoberfest, Oktoberfest Zinzinnati has been hosted since 1976 and now takes place downtown on 2nd and 3rd Streets, between Elm and Walnut. The festival offers beers, sausages, saurkraut balls, potato pancakes, pretzels, strudels, cream puffs, and more! Now, just about every German related food is my favorite (probably because my family is German and my Oma is a great cook), so I tend to splurge during the Oktoberfest weekend. ALL THAT FOOD AND BEER. How do you stay comfy yet festive, you ask?
Yesterday, Cincinnati Bell released another edition to their #CincyGive t-shirt line with My State Threads that plays perfectly into Oktoberfest wear. Tap handles are topped with our cities name and adorned with words like home and prost. Pair it with your lederhosen, a skirt and apron for a twist on the dirndl or with your favorite pair of jeans.
The best part about this shirt? Proceeds from the sale support four local charities including CancerFree KIDS, The Dragonfly Foundation, SPCA Cincinnati, and USO of Central and Southern Ohio! If you want to get your shirt before you head down to Oktoberfest, stop by the Hofbrauhaus on Saturday from 11-6pm or visit these Cincinnati Bell locations: Kenwood, Atrium II (downtown), Western Hills, and Florence. If you’re too busy to run out, place an order through www.cincygive.com or through the handy dandy Connect Cincinnati app. It’s that simple to look good and do good.
I’ll see you all at Oktoberfest! Prost! 🍻
