OUS Houston - Annual Oktoberfest Event
On October 14, we - OUS Houston - held our annual Oktoberfest at Rudi Lechner’s Restaurant in Houston.
Rudi’s is a Houston institution and offers a selection of German foods from sauerkraut to schnitzel. Approximately 30 members and friends attended the dinner and we caught up with several members we hadn’t seen in a while, and opened the ranks to Cambridge alumni.
Terry Slesinski-Wykowski, our branch Chair, got into the spirit with Bavarian attire and one of our members, Christian Mehnert, opened the festivities with a traditional toast in German.
We were treated to traditional German music following the buffet meal and a few even tried to join in with the chorus of Edelweiss (especially after a sampling of German beer!).
