now that’s what I call a fest

The Laaber Bürgerfest was a great time! Gerhard and Uschi were excellent hosts, showing us around their favorite spots based on prior experience. Met some nice new people too.

Great food, great beers, great people.

Great day.

Here’s a clip of the Laaber Akkordeonclub’s set of ABBA’s greatest hits:

It’s the weekend! In Regensburg! In Summer! What’s that mean?

That’s right, another fest. This time, it’s Bayerisches Jazz Weekend. Directly upon exiting the office doors on Thursday evening, I was greeted by the bebop of a piano/bass/drums trio as I headed across the Piazza toward the bus stop.

On Friday evening, the usual festy spots were packed with sound stages and beer tents and street food vendors. But Bismarckplatz was *really* hopping. We met Tammy & the Lees there before heading to the *Volkssternwarte* to check out some cosmic stuff.

For a change of pace, Sarah and I are headed this evening to Laaber for…a fest. But maybe it’ll have a different feel — an even-smaller-town flavor.
