    Some days here are worth the membership fee on their own.

    Well now you come to mention it, yes, exactly like that. But one that is still active.

    We have one soon in Gothenburg, but in comparison with those in Germany, it is very modest.

    I liked the one in Malmo, met some nice musicians there busking. In fact, my daughter in law Lottie is from Gothenburg and was a busker, we met her in Jerusalem, she was our au pair and then married our son and now lives in Pennsylvania near us. Anyway Malmo has a nice beerfest.

    There is one here in Allentown Pa/Bethlehem called Octoberfest, pretty good one not as big as Musicfest here though. My wife and I played 5 years running at Musicfest. Lot of great memories on stage.

    Is your Octoberfest also known by another name?

    RHP will once again be a very minor sponsor of the beer festival local to RHP HQ.

    Worth it to hear people mistakenly asking for a pint of "Red Hot Pawn". Perhaps inspiration for a side project right there.

    Might see you there?

    Edit: actually I won't as I'll be in Devon. Maybe next year.

    Yuck. I'd rather drink Heineken (and that's going some).

    Never heard of it. What's it like?

    Unfortunately, I can't think of a Bock with a chess-related name.
