Disclosure: I was given a pair of tickets to attend the Oktoberfest dinner at the Nugget in Sparks. All the comments and opinions are my own.
I like to mark the official end of summer by the annual Oktoberfest celebrations that occur around the Reno and Sparks area of Nevada. Since I’m not a beer drinker, I’ve been assured I am missing the best part of every festive event. I personally believe it’s the apple strudel accompanied by coffee and the lively music and chatter of the crowd.
A delicious feast for Oktoberfest was held in a different area of the local casino and hotel this year, on the second floor past the Rose Ballroom. The elevators and escalator made it easy for guests to get up to the event. It’s surprising how much food was set out in several buffet style areas to help diners get through the line quickly after filling their plate with traditional German cuisine.
Desserts were neatly arranged on tables throughout the room. Yum! Apple strudel and chocolate cake were arrayed in a magnificent display.
The scenery and music for this fete changes from year to year while celebrating the change of seasons and goodbye to fall.
