o'zapft is

The annual Oktoberfest began today with Mayor Christian Ude tapping the first keg in the Schottenhamel tent at noon. For the 4th year in a row he has tapped the wooden keg with just two swings of the wooden mallet. Locals joke that a good mayor can get the keg tapped with just two or three swings, so the SPD member has constantly been reelected since 1993.
