Downtown Chandler's third annual Oktoberfest celebration hits SanTan Brewing Company this Saturday and promises to feature a host of traditional activities: Bratwurst-eating, polka music, Bavarian-style biergartens, and ... a beer pong tournament? A Big Two Toyota-sponsored strongest man competition?
Okay, so maybe the event won't be all traditional activities. But we caught up with president of the Arizona Accordion Club and authentic Oktoberfest entertainer Jack Dermody to teach us how to toast like a German before Saturday's festivities.
